Overview

What if your CT could address the needs of all your patients, even the challenging ones? What if your CT could help you deliver clinical excellence across all of your departments?

It’s time for a Revolution.

Revolution CT delivers uncompromised image quality and clinical capabilities through the convergence of coverage, spatial and temporal resolution – all in one. It is the CT designed to help you deliver revolutionary and differentiated capabilities across all of your clinical areas.


 

Introducing Revolution CT

 

GSI Xtream

GSI Xtream on Revolution CT.

Volume. Spectral. Simplified.
Introducing GSI Xtream on RevolutionTM CT,1 the first volume spectral CT technology designed to improve small lesion detection, tissue characterization and metal artifact reduction, with a simplified workflow you can make part of your daily practice.  The entire GSI experience has been enhanced from scanning to reconstruction to visualization.  Enabled by innovations such as GemstoneTM Clarity detector, volume coverage and fast kV switching, only GE can deliver this breakthrough. GSI Xtream helps you diagnose disease with more confidence, which could ultimately put patients on the right treatment path sooner.

Volume Spectral CT faster than the blink of an eye2
GSI Xtream extends our uncompromised RevolutionTM CT platform with its wide collimation and 50 cm FOV to deliver the only volume spectral CT.  Enabled by ultrafast kV switching, you can scan more challenging patients and reduce the effects of motion. The GemstoneTM Clarity detector combined with ASiR-VTM delivers dose neutral exams for patients of any size.3  See the whole picture with volume spectral CT.

Go beyond dual energy with Spectral CT
What you see with spectral CT will redefine what you expect from your CT scanner. Material density images go beyond visualizing anatomy to characterizing tissues, which allows you to see the difference between similar HU densities such as cysts or enhancing lesions. With a contrast-to-noise ratio 60 percent higher than single energy CT at 120 kV, monochromatic images improve lesion detection and enhance contrast.4 And GSI MAR reduces metal artifacts while maintaining spatial resolution, so you can see around challenging metal implants.

Simplified workflow you won’t even notice
The best workflow is almost invisible and supports you from behind the scenes to help you complete the important work you do every day. From setup to post processing, GSI Xtream is as intuitive as a single energy exam. GSI Assist and Clinical ID help standardize and automate protocol selection with images directly transferred to PACS and/or AW.  These improvements, combined with native GSI reconstruction, deliver spectral CT workflow that’s twice as fast.5

Solutions

Expand your clinical care areas with solutions streamlined to address your patient population.

Smart Technologies is a suite of intelligent CT tools designed to help you achieve your imaging goals with improved efficiency and expanded applications, including stroke, poly-trauma and cardiac CT, all while delivering diagnostic confidence with lower levels of radiation. 

Smart Dose
Intelligent technology designed to help you acquire high-quality images using lower doses of radiation, contributing to more accurate diagnoses and lower exposures for patients. 

RevolutionTM CT features the latest Smart Dose Technologies designed to help you acquire high quality images using lower doses of radiation. Smart Dose Technologies contribute to a more accurate diagnosis and lower exposure for patients across routine and advanced exams, including dynamic acquisitions for perfusion and 4D studies. 

Key Smart Dose Technologies include: 

  • Integrated ASiR-VTM — This reconstruction technology is designed to deliver reduced noise levels, improve low-contrast detectability and routinely reduce dose up to 82% for patients of all ages1
  • Organ Dose Modulation  — The system can also automatically modulate X-rays to reduce dose to radiation sensitive organs and anatomical areas such as the eyes and the breasts without compromising image quality. 
  • Pediatric Imaging —  Pediatric patients experience sedation free, minimal breath holds at a very low dose. Whole abdomen and pelvis scanning can be accomplished in less than one second. 
  • 70 kV Scanning —  This enables the capability for low dose protocols, which are especially suitable for pediatric imaging. 
  • Smart Patient Centering  — This feature helps to detect sub-optimal centering prior to the diagnostic scan. When the scout is acquired, the system will assess patient centering and suggest table movement to accomplish this. 
  • DoseWatchTM —  Named AuntMinnie 2015 Best New Radiology Software, DoseWatch is a web-based, cloud-deployed solution to track, analyze and report practice-level dose data. 

Smart Flow 
Systems designed to help you improve productivity by streamlining user workflow and access to information.

Welcome to the new Clarity Operator Environment. We took cues from the consumer devices you enjoy using every day and integrated them into a totally new, yet familiar user interface experience. Using the latest in Smart Flow Technologies, the new Revolution CT Clarity Operator Environment will provide you with more intuitive, guided acquisition workflow to simplify scan setup and enable more consistency across scans. 

Smart Flow Technologies allow you to:

  • Adapt to the needs of your patients by adding or deleting an exam series with protocol cart.
  • Gain quick access to exams from multiple patients with tabbed workflows and receive user alerts when all tasks are complete.
  • Personalize scan parameters based off patient scout.
  • Streamline reconstructions, image transfers and post-processing with plan ahead task lists.
  • Eliminate the need for additional cables by using the integrated ECG module.
  • Scan up to 200 cm with a table capacity up to 675 lbs. and an 80 cm bore, enabling access to a wider range of patients. 

Smart Kids
Deliver better care at a lower dose.

With Revolution CT, pediatric patients experience sedation free, minimal breath holds at a very low dose. Whole abdomen and pelvis scanning can be accomplished in less than one second.

70 kV scanning enables the capability for low dose protocols, which are especially suitable for pediatric imaging. Design features such as soft ambient lighting and a patient centric bore pattern create a calming effect.  The Adventure Series,TM  offered as an option, immerses patients in an underwater journey or jungle adventure with themed rooms to help distract them from the procedure.

Smart Spectral
Innovative technology that helps you make spectral imaging routine by assisting you in setting up these advanced procedures. GSI Assist and Clinical ID help standardize and automate protocol selection with images directly transferred to PACS and/or AW.
