GE Healthcare Introduces Ultrasound Fusion; New LOGIQ E9 Merges Real-Time Ultrasound With CT, MR, and PET

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Nov. 24 /CNW/ - GE Healthcare today
announced the launch of a new ultrasound system for
radiology and vascular applications that fuses
ultrasound images with images from other imaging
modalities like CT and MR.The new LOGIQ(R) E9
includes Volume Navigation, an innovative tool which
incorporates two key components to maximize the
system's new agile ultrasound architecture: 'Fusion'
to combine the advantages of real-time ultrasound
imaging with the high spatial and contrast resolution
of CT, MR or PET; and a 'GPS-like technology' to
track and mark a patient's anatomy during the
ultrasound exam, bringing confidence and productivity
to both diagnostic and interventional studies.

"GE's new LOGIQ E9 helps address the biggest
challenge in ultrasound radiology and vascular care
- how to leverage clinical images from previous
diagnostic imaging studies for interventional or
diagnostic ultrasound procedures," said Terri
Bresenham, GE's Global VP, Diagnostic Ultrasound and
Information Technology. "We worked closely with a
global team of radiologists and sonographers to
develop this new ultrasound architecture, giving
clinicians the advantages of imaging modalities -
MR, CT and PET - and it is already reigniting the
imagination of the ultrasound industry."
