September 13, 2007 — CompView Medical, a provider of integrated audio-visual systems for healthcare environments, announced a partnership with GE Healthcare through their General Electric Healthcare OEC Surgery Division (GE OEC), whereby GE OEC will be a distributor of the CompView Medical NuBOOM video integration and equipment management system.
This unique agreement enhances the minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedure market that GE OEC supports as the combined efforts of both companies provide a complete surgical solution for in-patient hospital facilities and outpatient ambulatory surgical centers (ASC's). This is the first time video integration equipment has been represented by a surgical fluoroscopic imaging company.
NuBOOM is the only all-in-one equipment management and video visualization system that delivers four fully adjustable high definition (HD) monitors around the operating room table. The system provides surgeons and members of the operating room (OR) staff ergonomically-sound viewing angles of high quality images from anywhere within the operating field.
GE OEC, part of the GE Healthcare division, is the market leader in Mobile C-Arm Fluoroscopy systems. The company develops computer-based X-ray and fluoroscopic imaging systems for hospitals, outpatient clinics and surgical centers. The firm's X-ray imaging systems combine radiographic and fluoroscopic imaging with digital image-processing capabilities to improve image quality, lower X-ray dosage and reduce costs.
