Complex procedures - made simpler

With its 20.5 x20.5 cm (8.1 in) square flat-panel digital detector, Innova IGS 520 offers 38% greater coverage than 17.7 cm (7 in) square panels and thus limit panning during your cardiac procedures. It is designed to help you achieve steep cardiac angulations. The system is designed from the ground to provide the image clarity you need while helping you keep dose as low as possible. It includes features like InnovaSenseTM,1, an advanced patient contouring technology that uses an active sensor to assess movement of the gantry and select the optimal position for the image receptor relative to the patient. By reducing the distance from the receptor to the patient, the system optimizes imaging geometry and helps reduce radiation exposure. Powered with the new generation of GE's advanced interventional imaging software solutions, ASSIST, you can expand your clinical versatility and successfully plan, guide and assess increasingly sophisticated procedures with greater precision and dose efficiency.

In clinical use, the results of the application of dose reduction techniques will vary depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. The Interventional cardiologist, assisted by a physicist as necessary has to determine the appropriate settings for each specific clinical task.

2. PCI ASSIST refers to features of Innova IGS 520

3. Improvement vs. same test without PCI ASSIST option. IQ & visibility improvement is measured on Innova IGS530 with phantoms using various Plexiglas Thicknesses, acquisition parameters and the NEMA spoke wheel tool (ref 1), calculating the ratio of the contrast of the moving wires to the background noise level. The amount of Image Quality improvement related to PCI ASSIST depends on the acquisition parameters, clinical task, patient size, amount of motion in the image, anatomical location, and clinical practice.
