GE’s Logiq E9 Improves Interventional Procedures

GE showcased their new volume navigation technology on the GE Logiq E9 at the Society of Interventional Radiology.  The needle features a highly sensitive electromagnetic tip which improves accuracy and avoidance of key anatomy.

A company representative states “LOGIQ E9’s advanced needle tracking can now help medical professionals utilize ultrasound during in-plane and challenging out-of-plane interventional procedures,” said Brian McEathron, general manager of General Imaging Ultrasound, GE Healthcare. “This can reduce time, limit repeat procedures, improve outcomes and result in a better overall patient experience.”

In addition, “Before the skin is even penetrated, the LOGIQ E9’s advanced technology projects the path to the target, helping to plan the optimal angle and point of entry. During the procedure, the system displays the needle’s position in real-time graphics that are overlaid on the image of the scan plane. The trajectory can then be monitored as it progresses toward the target.”
