Overview

Improve workflow. Supercharge applications.

Enhance the capabilities of your Optima* MR450wDiscovery* MR750 and MR750w with the DV24.0 Continuum* Pak, our latest response to your ever-changing diagnostic needs. It contains a robust collection of solutions to improve workflow and to supercharge your applications.

Perhaps the most exciting feature is the ability to perform neuro scans at near ambient noise levels with Silent Scan, available for the Discovery MR750w and the Optima MR450w. And with a range of customizable package offerings, you can tailor an upgrade package to meet the specific needs of your facility.

Benefits

Realize the full potential of MR imaging.

The DV24.0 Continuum* Pak offers enhancements that allow you to get the most from your Optima* MR450w, Discovery* MR750 and MR750w scanners. These improvements allow you to work more productively, boost patient comfort and increase your diagnostic power.

Benefits of the DV24.0 Continuum Pak include:

Expanded productivity features:

  • GEM auto-coil selection process, automatic pasting, a unique ‘duplicate and set-up’ function and seamless sharing of protocols between your GE systems dramatically improve workflow. GEM available on Discovery MR750w and Optima MR450w.
  • A new eXpress prescan algorithm increases the efficiency of the calibration process, reducing prescan times by 30 percent compared to previous generation software.
  • Improved parallel imaging capabilities allow for higher quality images in less time.

Increased patient comfort:

  • With Silent Scan technology, available on the Discovery MR750w and the Optima MR450w, patients in need of a routine neuro scan can enjoy decibel levels just above that of ambient noise.
  • In addition, our GEM Suite of coils, available on the Discovery MR750w and the Optima MR450w, is designed to embrace the unique anatomies of each patient, reducing the need to shift during a scan.

Improved diagnostic power:

  • With applications like IDEAL IQ, ASL, MAVRIC SL and MR Touch, GE brings more quantitative imaging solutions to your routine practice than ever before.
  • Enhanced applications like 3D Promo, FOCUS and Black Blood SSFE also boost diagnostic capabilities.

Applications

A robust collection of applications to improve workflow and boost diagnostic power.

The DV24.0 Continuum* Pak offers the latest advanced applications to supplement your Discovery* MR750 and MR750w and Optima* MR450w system to help you utilize the full potential of MR imaging.

3D PROMO: provides 3D volumetric imaging correction of motion in real-time through a unique, state-of-the-art algorithm that reduces the need for retakes during neuro exams.

FOCUS: delivers a highly efficient method for increasing the resolution in Single Shot DW EPI sequences. Utilizing a multi-dimensional selective excitation, FOCUS supports zoomed, small field of view imaging of specific organs with higher diagnostic quality, lower artifacts and faster exam times compared to conventional diffusion imaging.

Enriched Diffusion Imaging: GE Healthcare's Real Time Field Adjustment (RTFA) technology corrects field imperfections that result in image distortions and loss of resolution in diffusion imaging techniques. RTFA enables large field of view coverage in the body, shorter echo times and increased SNR compared with previous techniques.

BrainWave 3.0: a new, simplified solution for functional MRI with support for multi-design paradigms, event-related activity and extensions for diffusion tractography and report generation support.

Body Navigators: designed to allow for free breathing, motion-controlled acquisitions. DWI, MRCP, T2 and T1 high-resolution images are scanned without a breath hold, and routine liver imaging is performed in less than 15 minutes.

Black Blood Single Shot Fast Spin Echo: Utilizing single shot acquisitions allows large volume multi-slice coverage for morphological imaging of the heart and vessels. That means Black Blood SSFSE improves patient comfort by reducing the number of breath holds, as well as reducing overall scan times.

PS-MDE: Phase Sensitive Inversion Recovery is used to reduce the sensitivity of inversion delay times for enhanced cardiac exams. The result is consistent imaging without worrying about the delay time.

eSWAN 2.0: a high-resolution 3D multi-echo gradient echo sequence that results in an SNR that is higher than a single echo acquisition. SWAN 2.0 generates magnitude and phase images from a single acquisition, allowing you to differentiate between microvasculature bleeds and calcified lesions.
