GE Healthcare launched more than 30 new imaging intelligent applications and smart devices designed to drive efficiency in radiology departments, aiming to double productivity and cost savings for systems by 2025, at the 105th annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA).
Healthcare inefficiencies lead to nearly $1 trillion of annual financial waste in the U.S. alone. Healthcare executives report costs and transparency as their number one concern moving into next year and need new solutions to help solve these challenges.
The new products include:
• AIRRecon DL3, an Edison application providing True Fidelity images, is a GE-first, deep-learning MRI reconstruction technology application designed to improve signal-to-noise and image sharpness and enable shorter scan times.
• Critical Care Suite, an industry-first, FDA-cleared collection of artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms embedded on a mobile X-ray device for triage.
• Edison Open AI Orchestrators designed to orchestrate AI at scale for imaging workflows.
• Revolution Maxima with AI-Based Auto Positioning, a CT that maximizes every step of the CT workflow, from referral to report.
• OEC Touch for OEC Elite CFD featuring a new control panel located right on the C-arm.
• Embo ASSIST6 with Virtual Injection, an Edison application designed to help clinicians perform complex embolization procedures.
• Clinical Command Centers designed to improve outcomes and efficiency with new real-time decision support tools along with process improvement targeted using digital twins of patient flow.
“Automation and smart technologies are not only the future of medical imaging but are essential as departments look to transform workflows and the patient experience,” said Dr. Vincent Lombard, the first clinical adopter of RevolutionMaxima with AI-based Auto Positioning4, and a radiologist at Centre Imagery Jacques Callot. “By integrating artificial intelligence into existing workflows we’ve been able to not only improve scan quality and reduce steps, but we’ve also been able to spend more time caring for patients.”
Several of the new smart devices and intelligent applications were developed using Edison, GE Healthcare’s secure intelligence platform that helps both GE Healthcare developers and select strategic partners to design, develop, manage, secure and distribute advanced applications, services and AI algorithms quickly.
“Now, more than ever, clinicians face tremendous pressure to deliver optimal patient care and clinical outcomes with fewer resources,” said Kieran Murphy, President and CEO of GE Healthcare. “By integrating data, intelligent software applications, and smart devices, we’re enabling clinicians to make faster, more informed decisions to give them time with what matters most: their patients.”
