September 22, 2008 – GE Healthcare launched its new Signa Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Oncology Package at ASTRO 2008.
The Signa MRI Oncology Package, a dedicated oncology solution, enhances magnetic resonance imaging for radiation therapy planning and is compatible with the most widely used GE MRI systems. The package consists of a detachable flat-surface patient table with indexed edges, flexible surface coils for high resolution imaging and treatment positioning aids.
Designed to facilitate patient positioning in the radiation treatment position, the Signa Oncology Package provides improved ease and consistency in co-registering MRI and computed tomography (CT) images. It allows the exquisite soft-tissue contrast of MRI to be more easily and accurately fused with CT images by providing MRI images that are acquired in the same positioning as CT. The result: precise fixation, optimized workflow and indexing.
