Discovery™ IGS 7

Rediscover space and movement.

The Discovery™ IGS 7 angiography system brings both extremely high-quality imaging and complete workspace freedom to the hybrid operating room.

Its unique mobile platform brings all the power of a fixed imaging system to the table, yet it can be moved aside, so multi-disciplinary teams can complete procedures comfortably, with unobstructed access to patients.

High-end fluoroscopy image guidance, advanced applications, 3D image fusion – it all comes on a sophisticated gantry that travels on predefined paths with laser-guided precision.


With a choice of optimal mid size 31 cm and largest field of view 41 cm detectors to accommodate a wide range of endovascular, hybrid and open surgical procedures, free of interference from fixed floor or ceiling system structures.

With the Discovery IGS 7:
  • Rethink your possibilities with predictable motion and patient access
  • Reinvent the way you work with high-precision imaging
  • Re-evaluate your options with flexible room layouts

System

Rethink your possibilities.

With the Discovery™ IGS 7 gantry, nothing on the floor or ceiling obstructs your work or limits your mobility - your freedom is nearly absolute. An untethered, laser-guided gantry carries the imaging C-arm. You can move it to the table to image any part of the anatomy, then power it back, out of the way, to precise pre-chosen positions.

Imaging

  • 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.
  • InnovaSense

    Advanced patient contouring technology that uses capacitive sensor to assess movement of the gantry and select the optimal position for the image receptor relative to the patient. 2
  • DoseMap

    Display of the distribution of the estimated local cumulated dose all along the exam as well as the current projection of the beam. Alerts at configurable dose thresholds.3

Applications

  • 3DCT HD

    3DCT HD provides fine image details simultaneously on cross-sections and volume rendered to help you clearly visualize vessels, small devices and soft tissues.4
    Specific acquisition parameters and automatic artifact reduction algorithms can improve image quality and increase your clinical confidence for each application.
    3DCT HD MAR reduces streak artifacts induced by the presence of small metallic devices such as coils or clips within the 3D field of view.8
    3DCT HD Motion Freeze is designed to reduce artefacts caused by involuntary respiratory motion during the rotational acquisition and recover small detail visibility impacted by motion.8
  • InnovaSpin

    The offset C-arm permits fast-spin rotational angiography over a maximum range of 200° at variable speeds from 20° to 40°/sec (maximum speed of 30°/s from LAO to RAO) with flexible cranio/caudal oblique angulations. The enhanced InnovaSpinTM trajectories are not constrained to a single transverse plane and can be used at oblique angulations within physical constraints.3
  • InnovaBreeze

    Follow the contrast bolus in real time subtracted images, using variable panning speed control, with an easy workflow.
    Image pasting to visualize the entire length of the subtracted bolus chase on a single image.5

OR Solutions
