Signa HDx Provides Real-Time Image Generation

The Signa HDx 3.0T’s XVRE volume-reconstruction engine ensures virtually real-time image generation. The XVRE is the enabler for new XV (expanded volume) Clinical Applications that utilize acceleration techniques such as ASSET and GEM. GEM is a hybrid acceleration technique that uses variable sampling to provide the fastest image acceleration.

Also featured at RSNA, GE Healthcare’s breast MRI portfolio includes VIBRANT, for bilateral imaging system, BREASE, for breast spectroscopy and 8-Channel Breast Array, with CADstream integration.

GE’s VIBRANT (volume imaging for breast assessment) high definition technology enables a non-invasive imaging procedure of both breasts simultaneously, in a single patient visit.

VIBRANT–XV further expands the capability to acquire high-resolution images at high speed, reportedly providing both exquisite anatomical detail as well as critical kinetic information. GE’s MR BREASE can help improve the ability to characterize benign breast lesions by showing differentiated concentrations of choline, according to the company.
