Revolution CT freezes the heart's motion in just one heartbeat without sacrificing image quality
According to published literature (the
"In a cost-constrained healthcare environment, clinicians need one definitive test that gives them the diagnostic confidence to make the right treatment decision for their patients.
The convergence achieved by Revolution CT enables comprehensive cardiac exams with anatomic and functional information in just one heartbeat, even with challenging patients and higher heart rates; rapid, whole-brain stroke assessment at low dose and dynamic liver, kidney, or pancreas oncology workup personalized with perfusion and vascular flow analysis.
The Revolution CT is engineered to wow, with technology advances including the 16 cm Gemstone* Clarity detector for whole organ coverage, best-in-class spatial resolution at 230 microns for visualizing small anatomy, and a 0.28 second gantry designed and tested for up to 0.2 sec rotation speed.
Combined with SnapShot* Freeze motion correction technology, the system delivers 24 msec effective temporal resolution for high heart rate imaging without restrictions.
The Revolution CT continues GE's commitment to even lower CT doses, with innovations such as the new Gemstone Clarity detector, a dedicated 70kVp scan mode for pediatric use, and ASiR-V*, GE's next generation of iterative reconstruction technology. For the patient, the system provides a wider, more comfortable 80cm bore and a quiet scanning experience with the new
Among other innovative technologies for cardiology, GE's innovative MAC 2000 ECG Analysis System is another advanced solution that makes diagnosis faster and more accurate, with the power of the Marquette 12SL analysis program. Tool such as HookUp Advisor allow users to identify a quality signal before acquisition, helping avoid costly repeat ECGs. It's all part of a smarter, simpler workflow that lets you do more in less time—so healthcare professionals can focus on patients.
In the area of heart monitoring, GE is also showing the SEER 1000, a multi-channel digital holter recorder and wireless application for cardiac data collection and accuracy. For patients, knowing the leads are placed correctly and properly connected as the Holter study begins to monitor heart activity throughout the day provides peace of mind. With the SEER 1000 the hookup is precise and dependable making it simple for the patient and the technician to use. It features a custom app that is compatible with today's advanced wireless technologies, including tablets, smart phones and Bluetooth®-enabled PCs. The custom app gives visual guidance for lead placement and a clear view of signal quality. All of this can reduce the chance for poor data collection.
The Cardiology or Cardiac Intensive Care Unit specializes in the care of patients with heart or circulation issues, including heart attacks, cardiac arrhythmia and various other cardiac conditions that require continuous monitoring and treatment. Typical procedures performed include ECG and exercise tests to measure heart function and cardiac catheterization (coronary angiography) to detect blockages in the arteries.
