GE’s Ultrasound Fusion Merges Logiq E9 with CT, MR, PET

 

October 31, 2008

A new ultrasound system for radiology and vascular applications, the LOGIQ E9, fuses ultrasound images with images from other imaging modalities like CT and MR.

The LOGIQ E9 includes volume navigation, a tool incorporating two key components to maximize the system’s ultrasound architecture: fusion to combine the advantages of real-time ultrasound imaging with the high spatial and contrast resolution of CT, MR or PET; and a GPS-like technology to track and mark a patient’s anatomy during the ultrasound exam.
