GE Healthcare (Chicago, IL, USA) introduced the industry’s first computed tomography (CT) platform with built-in scalability and upgradability at the Radiological Society of North America’s 2021 Annual Meeting.

AT RSNA 2021, GE introduced its Revolution Apex platform – an industry first CT platform with built-in scalability for onsite CT detector upgrades from 40 mm to 80 mm or 160 mm detector coverage – all without replacing the gantry. Offering uncompromised clinical capabilities, the new Revolution Apex platform helps radiology departments stay ahead of the technology curve with a modular design that offers a seamless path to continuous hardware and software scalability and upgradability that will extend the lives of CT systems into the future.

GE also unveiled SIGNA Hero, a new 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system named in honor of all the healthcare workers who continue caring for the global community amidst today’s COVID-19 pandemic. Offering new workflows and AIR Recon DL enhancements, SIGNA Hero is designed to help those on the frontlines meet today’s most pressing needs. AIR Recon DL is GE’s pioneering deep learning image reconstruction technology that works across all anatomies and offers clinicians a 30-50% reduction in exam times. With better image quality, enhanced workflows, increased productivity, improved patient comfort and greater sustainability, SIGNA Hero aims to make challenging exams simpler, turning “difficult” to “routine.”

At RSNA 2021, GE unveiled around 60 innovative technology solutions spanning the healthcare spectrum including patient screening, diagnostics, therapy planning, guidance, and monitoring. Amidst a global pandemic and mounting pressure on the industry, the company accelerated innovations underpinned by artificial intelligence (AI) and digital solutions to help transform healthcare delivery, making it easier and more efficient for clinicians and health systems, and more personalized and precise for patients. At RSNA 2021, GE showcased several new AI-powered, automated and data-driven solutions to help encourage greater diagnostic confidence, ease the burden of care and improve workflow for healthcare systems around the world.

“Our goal is to make healthcare more human by breaking down barriers so clinicians can work at the top of their game, healthcare systems can operate more efficiently, and patients can get the best and most personalized care possible,” said Kieran Murphy, president & CEO, GE Healthcare. “Healthcare is at a turning point and at GE Healthcare we are using our clinical expertise and know-how to deliver innovative technologies and solutions that help solve healthcare’s most pressing problems, advance precision health and improve patient lives.”
