Overview

See. Your Way. Clearly.

With its 41 cm (16.1 in) square detector, Innova IGS 540 provides extensive body coverage for peripheral and abdominal procedures.

The Innova IGS 540 was designed from the ground up to provide the image clarity you need while helping you keep dose as low as possible. It includes features like Dose Personalization1, which gives you the tools to choose from up to four2 automatic exposure preferences for your system. You can also modify any of these preferences in any clinical protocol, to enable multi-procedure, multi-user customization, and thus support well-informed decisions.

Powered with dedicated advanced applications, you can plan, guide and assess procedures with confidence.

  • FlightPlan for Liver helps you plan your liver embolization in three intuitive steps and automatically highlight vessels traveling from the catheter tip to the hyper-vascular tumor.  

  • Innova TrackVision helps you can plan and guide needle procedures by identifying one or multiple needle trajectories for your case and overlay these virtual trajectories
    over the live fluoroscopic images – so you know where you are in delicate

Benefits


Excellent anatomical coverage


The Innova IGS 540 with its 41 x 41 cm (16.1 in) square flat-panel digital detector boasts one of the largest fields of view for vascular and interventional imaging. It can cover large anatomies, such as both legs simultaneously, designed for fewer runs than smaller detectors, enabling efficient use of contrast and dose.

Superb image quality with high Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE)


The proprietary angiography flat-panel detector offers one of the industry’s highest ratings for Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE), a parameter internationally acknowledged as an index of detector performance in contrast- and dose-limited imaging performed in clinical studies. High DQE enables better-quality images at the same dose, or the same quality image at a lower dose.


Lower dose by design


GE designs systems from the ground up with the tried and trusted GE imaging chain, optimized to provide the image clarity you need while helping you keep dose as low as possible. Our dose-reduction features empower you to easily optimize and personalize dose settings from the tableside, while maintaining clinical details you need to make well-informed decisions. But improving dose management takes a strategy – what we call the GE Blueprint. It includes low-dose imaging technologies for minimally invasive procedures, but also considers the people, culture and processes around them.

Clinical Applications

Over 20 advanced applications to help you plan, guide and assess complex procedures

GE Healthcare offers a full suite of advanced applications designed to help improve your lab efficiency and enhance clinical confidence to plan, guide and assess complex procedures. They can be used across a full range of interventional procedures whilst being built to answer dedicated challenges. Example of a brilliant innovation in Interventional oncology is FlightPlan for Liver that helps plan TACE procedures by automatically highlighting vessels traveling from the catheter tip to the hypervascular lesion.

3D imaging in the interventional lab

Innova 3D is an acquisition mode that provides 3D imaging from rotational angiography allowing you to clearly visualize complex vasculature in the interventional lab. It provides high-contrast 3D images showing fine spatial resolution through a full range of tissue densities. It is automatically reconstructed using your preferred parameters on the Advantage Workstation to give you access to a full range of analysis tools.

Acquire CT-like images in the vascular lab

Used for clinical applications requiring detailed images with low-contrast resolution, Innova* CT enhances soft-tissue visualization to help you clearly identify suspected lesions. Easy access to CT-like images right in the vascular lab means you may not need to transfer patients to a CT exam room.

Multi-modality image management

Integrated Registration lets you fuse and register two volumetric acquisitions from the same or different acquisition modalities. With it, you can easily compare 3D anatomical images from CT, MR with PET, SPECT, and X-ray angiography3 for a more comprehensive analysis.

Procedures

To deliver therapeutic material to tumors during trans-arterial chemoembolization therapy, it is essential to identify the liver vessels accurately. But the liver’s complex vasculature can make precise identification of tumor-feeding vessels in 2D and 3D images a challenge, often requiring significant time, radiation, and contrast media.

Assess

FlightPlan for Liver helps you plan your liver embolization procedure. It automatically highlights vessels traveling from the catheter tip to the vicinity of a liver hypervascular lesion.

Once ready, you can send the FlightPlan for Liver 3D model to Innova Vision with a single click and use it as a 3D roadmap to guide catheters across tortuous vessels and bifurcations, helping you perform the embolization with confidence.

A post-operative Innova CT helps you determine the success of the
embolization.

Needle procedures 

Performing needle procedures in the interventional suite frees up your CT system and provides better access to the patient. However, under fluoroscopic guidance, it may be challenging and time-consuming to find the right entry point and advance the needle while avoiding critical structures.

Assess

With Volume Viewer and Trajectory Planning, you can plan the procedure using
outstanding 3D information and determine the optimal skin entry points and needle paths.

With Innova TrackVision, you can guide
your needle along the trajectory that will follow the C-arm angulation and table movement. Plus, a dedicated algorithm overlays the bone anatomy and helps you correct for even small patient motion,
helping to facilitate accurate needle trajectory registration at any time during your procedure.

At the end of the procedure, when the
cement has been injected, an Innova CT
acquisition will help you see the cement
implantation in 3D and thus confirm
procedure completion.

Portal Vein Embolization 

The objective is to embolize only the branches that correspond to the part of the liver that will be resected. The portal vein has numerous anatomical variations, with many different branches that can be difficult to distinguish one from another on 2D fluoroscopic images. To do this with confidence, you must understand the exact position of the catheter in the anatomy and control the embolization phase in real time.

Assess

With Innova 3D, you can depict the full liver portal system and select the branches to
be embolized without being bothered with
vessel tortuosity and superimposition
issues.

Using Innova Vision, you can fuse the 3D information on live fluoroscopy in the lab
with real-time adjustment of the C-arm angulations and table position, offering
virtual support to navigate in the anatomy and control the embolic agent material injection.

After the procedure, you can use an
Innova Subtracted 3D acquisition to
visualize embolic material uptake in the
branches embolized allowing you to determine whether the patient needs
additional branches embolized.
