Electrophysiology

Empowering critical thinking. Helping you focus. The GE Healthcare suite of electrophysiology (EP) products is designed to empower critical thinking with solutions that help you focus on the patient, not the process. Our integrated technologies are designed to address your EP needs and to help reduce the distractions of a hospital environment.

Enhanced connectivity with Innova.

Surround yourself with reliability.

Diagnosis and treatment of the most complex cardiac conditions require intuitive, accurate, and reliable equipment. Starting with our CardioLab* Recording Systems and Innova* X-ray Systems, the GE Healthcare suite of EP technologies empowers EP physicians with capabilities that enhance your ability to perform the most complex procedures with confidence.

Dose

Exceptional quality while helping you achieve low dose. Smart thinking.

The family of Innova X-ray systems deliver excellent fluoroscopy with dedicated low-dose EP protocols-giving you the clinical image quality you require while helping you achieve low dose. Each Innova system includes DoseSense, a comprehensive system focused on three innovative GE Healthcare technology pillars designed to maximize dose efficiency, simplify dose management, and reduce dose.

  • AutoEx: Uses the image chain to its optimal performance for specific applications, allowing the physician to automatically set and adjust parameters for optimum image quality and dose levels. The system also allows physicians to easily personalize and manage image and dose settings to accommodate a wide variety of conditions and to achieve different clinical objectives.
  • Dose personalization: Enables customized dose preferences by protocol, patient, and physician with a wide range of dose and image quality options in the exposure control system.
  • Fluorostore: Stores, displays, and plays loops of the last 450 fluoroscopic images at the push of a button, for streamlined image review to help avoid extra images and dose exposure.
  • Dose Reports2: Helps you track and manage dose exposure to help monitor staff and patient dose levels. Easily view skin-dose profiles, generate dose-by-procedure reports, and identify potential cases outside of your dose protocol.
  • Virtual Collimation: Allows clinicians to preview collimator positioning without additional radiation exposure. Get the right repositioning from the last fluoro image without requiring radiation to visualize.

Dose reduction is a smart approach that’s part of our healthymagination commitment to provide solutions that improve quality and access to healthcare while reducing costs worldwide. The Innova X-ray system has been awarded healthymagination validation by external independent experts Oxford Analytica.

Advanced Applications

Electrophysiology Advanced Applications

EP Vision Advanced Application screen.

EPVision: See uncompromised registration between 3D models (CT, 3D Angio and MR) and 2D fluoroscopy throughout the entire procedure, for device localization at all times-offering image stabilization features such as ECG gated display or motion tracing in the image, reducing image motion.

Innova 3D: To perform ablations or deploy devices successfully, you must know exactly where anatomy and devices are in relation to one another. Working in a three-dimensional space, it’s critical to better visualize the anatomy before complex procedures.

Innova 3D Advanced Application screen.

  • GE’s Innova 3D imaging technique lets you rapidly acquire and reconstruct 3D cardiac anatomy images right in your cath lab.
  • Designed to enhance, but not replace, 2D fluoroscopic imaging.
  • Innova 3D is used for anatomical review to help guide complex cardiac procedures requiring the visualization of volume anatomy, such as EP or structural heart interventions.
  • Providing 3D views of internal body structures and interventional devices in one image, it assists physicians in diagnosis, surgical planning, interventional procedures and treatment follow-up.

TSI Advanced Application screen.

TSI: GE continues to invest in the development of clinical tools for diagnosis and treatment of heart failure. Tissue Synchronization Imaging (TSI) is a parametric imaging tool based on Tissue Velocity Imaging that provides clinicians with additional image enhancement for assessing delayed cardiac wall motion.

  • GE takes TSI to the next level with multi-dimensional imaging. Using multi-dimensional imaging users can acquire three planes simultaneously from the same cardiac cycle.
  • They are able to generate a bull’s-eye display along with a 4D model, with quantitative measurements and surface mapping. This allows them to communicate cardiac dyssynchrony to electrophysiologists and referring physicians.
  • TSI is a quantitative clinical tool that provides insight about the extent of asynchrony. GE continues to build on the clinical value of TSI with additional quantitative enhancements for the advanced user.
  • TSI Trace provides rapid access to time velocity trace, making it easier to quantitatively assess time-to-peak velocity data.
