GE Healthcare is giving surgeons breakthrough digital mobile imaging system

NewsGuard 100/100 Score

Surgeons need to clearly see their subject. In the case of minimally invasive surgery, that can be especially challenging because of the small incision or body opening through which they must work. To combat this difficulty, GE Healthcare is giving surgeons "eyes inside the body," with the OEC® FluoroTrak 9800 Plus, a breakthrough digital mobile imaging system.

Combined with the InstaTrack® surgical navigation system from GE, the FluoroTrak 9800 Plus gives surgeons a crisp picture to help them guide their instruments. "It’s like giving surgeons a global positioning system to help them navigate to the diseased or injured area," said Lewis Dudley, president and CEO of GE Healthcare - Surgery.

This platform’s real-time information capabilities enable doctors to make good decisions more quickly during surgery. The system offers the highest real-time imaging resolution available in an integrated mobile system. Its recording and management capabilities are comparable to the latest fixed-room fluoroscopic imaging systems.

Other features include a backlit control panel, allowing hospital personnel to see in darkened operating rooms; the lowest possible X-ray dose without relinquishing image quality; AutoTrak™, which automatically tracks the subject anatomy anywhere within the imaging field for true point-and-shoot ease of use; and a lightweight structure for ease in steering and maneuvering.
