GE Healthcare received FDA clearance for its Discovery IGS 740, a mobile angiography designed for hybrid operating rooms. The system rides on floor and can position itself in just about any state, moving to-and-fro the patient as may be necessary. A spinning laser atop the imaging unit keeps an eye on markers placed along the surgical suite’s ceiling, which provides accurate real-time position information to the device and permits it to return to the exact same state it took previously.
The system features a large 41″ x 41″ (104 cm x 104 cm) detector, bedside controls, and imaging capabilities such as 3D visualization, live 3D guidance, and needle tracking.
Here’s a GE product manager showing off the Discovery IGS 740 at last year’s RSNA:
