The new CT system includes a new 75 cm wide-gantry, 40 mm detector coverage and lower table position designed to accommodate high body mass index (BMI) patients and trauma cases that would otherwise be too delicate to maneuver in a smaller size gantry, according to a news release.
GE Healthcare touts the platform as capable of offering clinicians a collection of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies that automate and simplify time-consuming tasks to increase operational efficiency and free up time for clinicians to deliver more personalized care to more patients.
Effortless Workflow, a new suite of AI solutions, offers accurately personalized automatic scans for each patient while requiring less effort from the CT technologist, GE Healthcare said.
Revolution Ascend uses a dedicated, deep neural network to generate TrueFidelity CT images to help improve reading confidence across a range of clinical applications, including head, whole body and cardiovascular for patients of all ages. Its wide-gantry design increases patient area inside the bore by 22% to provide a more comfortable experience, too.
The Revolution Ascend Effortless Workflow and additional advanced applications are offered as an upgrade to existing GE Healthcare CT systems or by acquiring Smart Subscription to gain access to the latest CT device software across a hospital system’s entire CT fleet.
“We designed Revolution Ascend with accessibility in mind,” GE Healthcare president & CEO of molecular imaging & computed tomography Jean-Luc Procaccini said in the release. “Not only does the system’s hardware help accommodate more patients with various physical limitations, but its cutting-edge AI also helps expedite exams so healthcare system schedules can accommodate additional patient scans. Altogether, Revolution Ascend with Effortless Workflow helps empower clinicians to reach the right diagnosis as efficiently and precisely as possible for more patients.”
