GE Healthcare continues to re-invent and re-imagine cardiology and the innovations that may help fuel the field through the future.
At the 2008 Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association, in New Orleans this week, the company plans to showcase new products, new relationships and, above all, a new way to look at clinical practice.
Three new ultrasound devices are making a U.S. debut this week. The Vivid E9 is making the promise of true 4D heart imaging and opening the door to full cardiac studies in a completely 4D environment. Vivid q adds quantitative analysis to portable excellence, bringing even more diagnostic confidence into the equation while its intravascular ultrasound (ICE) imaging probe opens up an entirely new care area. All of these products are ready to help take users and their patients in directions they can only dream of.
Among the new releases from GE's Diagnostic Cardiology business at AHA is EMR Gateway, an innovation that delivers electrocardiogram (ECG) results and patient demographic data to virtually any Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system. In addition, the company will announce a new electrocardiograph system in MAC 1600, Event Recording for advanced arrhythmia assessment and a new version of its ECG management system. These advancements are all designed to aid healthcare providers in efficient selection of appropriate treatment.
GE Healthcare's Ultrasound Service team is set to announce the availability of AcoustiCare, a package including as many as four, fully covered, transesophageal ultrasound probe repairs per year. Each repair consists of genuine, upgraded OEM parts and results in a like-new, remanufactured transducer probe. GE's Interventional Service team for Hemodynamic & EP Recording Equipment, including Mac-Lab IT, CardioLab IT ® and ComboLab IT, will unveil Proactive System Check-up & Patch Management coverage for facilities needing optimal efficiency & security. This proactive system check-up can improve network performance, prevent workflow interruption and keep the system performing at optimal levels.
