New GE Ultrasound Fuses CT, MR, PET for Radiology, Vascular Care

September 2, 2008 - GE Healthcare launched a new ultrasound system for radiology and vascular applications that fuses ultrasound images with images from other imaging modalities like CT, MR, and PET, to overcome challenges with using clinical images from previous diagnostic imaging studies.

The new LOGIQ E9 includes Volume Navigation, a tool which incorporates two key components to maximize the system’s new agile 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, bringing confidence and productivity to both diagnostic and interventional studies.

This new GE architecture, called Agile Ultrasound, replaces old assumptions of conventional ultrasound systems with new, modular mathematical models that provide more accurate measurements of how sound interacts with different body tissue types. The new architecture reportedly improves more life-like images without a lot of manual adjustments to view specific anatomy, says the manufacturer.

Another key feature for the LOGIQ E9 is Scan Assistant, which is designed to aid clinicians to focus on diagnosis rather than on typing in data. This tool allows a clinician to pre-program the actions most often performed, and then let the system do the detailed manipulations as the patient is scanned. According to the manufacturer, it improves exam time up to 54 percent, automatically inserts comments, completes measurements, steers Color Doppler, sets up imaging controls and modes, and improves ergonomics.
