MedTech giant GE Healthcare launches next-generation X-ray system

USA- GE Healthcare has introduced its next-generation Definium 656 HD X-ray system intended to serve as a “personal assistant” for radiologists and technologists.

The Chicago-based GE Healthcare’s latest generation of its overhead tube suspension (OTS) system, leads its portfolio of fixed X-ray products as the most advanced fixed system yet, according to the release.

Tanya Lancaster, General Manager for Fixed X-ray, said that the company works hard to offer useful technologies and solutions that can support customers in providing the best patient care possible.

She was thrilled to announce the system has an emphasis on technologists’ workflow and efficiency, patient pleasure, and exam quality.

The Definium 656 HD, featuring the Intelligent Workflow Suite, is a versatile, digital radiographic system powered by GE’s FlashPad HD high-resolution detectors and the latest Helix 2.2 advanced image processing software.

The system is combined with the highest levels of motorization, automation, assistive intelligence and advanced applications with the fastest movement and highest weight capacity.

It will help technologists deliver consistent, efficient, and highly automated imaging exams that will impart clinical confidence across the radiology department.

Additionally, it will improve the overall patient experience by keeping workflow control in the room for healthcare providers.

It comes with high-quality detectors, advanced applications, and AI-driven image processing to reduce variability and provide optimal image quality.

This will enable radiologists to make clinical decisions with confidence and to address “repeat and reject” rates that can negatively impact day-to-day clinical operations.

GE Healthcare is a leader in the development of medical technology, pharmaceutical diagnostics, and digital solutions.

The company operates at the center of an ecosystem working toward precision health and digitizing healthcare.

It helps drive productivity and improve outcomes for patients, providers, health systems, and researchers around the world.

The company has over 100 years of experience in the healthcare industry and has about 48,000 employees worldwide.

The launched system will help address the physical needs of technologists by reducing patient positioning time, physical workload, errors, and image retakes.

This will be achieved through simple-to-use features that expedite the imaging process without sacrificing image quality.
