Clinical Applications Enhance GE’s Digital X-ray

RSNA 2013 Digital Radiography DR systems x-ray systems GE discovery XR656

October 2, 2013 — At RSNA 2013, GE will feature its Discovery XR656 digital X-ray system and a suite of advanced clinical applications:

  • VolumeRAD acquires volumetric patient data with up to 60 low dose exposures with one sweep across the patient. It enhances clinical information by displaying anatomical structures at various depths.
  • Auto-Image Paste — with one push of the exposure switch, one can acquire up to five images and paste them to form a single image. The integrated software automatically stitches the images together providing detailed images of patient anatomy such as spine and legs.
  • Dual Energy Subtraction separates the X-ray information into a soft tissue image and a bone image, thereby making it easier to visualize abnormalities and determine whether they are calcified or not.

Radiographic exams that are digital-ready and fully digital systems compatible with GE's FlashPad wireless detector can be performed when it is not safe or practical to move the patient to a regular radiographic room. Improving on the revolutionary AMX family of products, it brings reliability, extended battery life, a small footprint, higher maneuverability and seamless connectivity.
