GE Healthcare Unveils New Imaging Tech and Intelligent Apps at Arab Health 2020

GE Healthcare (Chicago, IL, USA) launched more than 30 new imaging intelligent applications and smart devices at Arab Health 2020 that are designed to drive efficiency in clinics and hospitals. For healthcare executives, the new offerings help save costs, improve technology utilization, and increase patient volumes. Clinicians also will benefit from intuitive workflows, improved diagnostic confidence and less rework, allowing them to devote more time for patients.

Several of these new smart devices and intelligent applications were developed using Edison, GE Healthcare’s secure intelligence platform that helps both GE Healthcare developers and select strategic partners to design, develop, manage, secure and distribute advanced applications, services and artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms quickly.

Among its efficiency-focused applications and devices showcased at this year’s Arab Health was AIR Recon DL3, an Edison application providing True Fidelity images and a GE-first, deep- learning MRI reconstruction technology application designed to improve signal-to-noise and image sharpness and enable shorter scan times. This application was developed using a neural network trained on tens of thousands of images using GE’s Edison AI Platform.

GE also highlighted its Critical Care Suite which is an industry-first, FDA cleared collection of AI algorithms embedded on a mobile X-ray device for triage. Built in collaboration with clinical partners, using GE Healthcare’s Edison platform, the AI algorithms help reduce the turn-around time for radiologists to review a suspected pneumothorax, a type of collapsed lung. Additionally, Critical Care Suite’s quality AI algorithms help technologists reduce image quality errors and improve efficiency by simultaneously auto rotating images as well as analyzing and flagging protocol and field of view errors on-device. The Intelligent Auto Rotate AI alone can save highly-trained technologists at a medium to large size hospital more than 70,000 manual clicks4 – that amounts to nearly 20 hours, or three working days a year spent rotating chest images on portable X-ray machines.

At Arab Health 2020, GE showcased its Edison Open AI Orchestrator which is designed to orchestrate AI at scale for imaging workflows. The new Edison Open AI Orchestrator simplifies the implementation, deployment, support and scaling of multiple AI applications, including from partners iCAD and MaxQ. Designed to seamlessly integrate clinical applications into the radiology PACS eading workflow, it reduces the complexity of multiple systems and algorithms working together that could lead to error and risk if implemented incorrectly.

GE also highlighted Revolution Maxima with AI-Based Auto Positioning, which is a powerful, high performing and reliable CT that maximizes every step of the CT workflow, from referral to report. Enabled with AI-based Auto Positioning technology, Revolution Maxima uses real-time depth sensing technology to generate a 3D model of a patient’s body to pinpoint the center of the scan range and automatically align it to the isocenter of the bore. Altogether, it is designed to simplify, streamline and automate the entire CT experience for one click, hands-free patient positioning.

“Now, more than ever, clinicians face tremendous pressure to deliver optimal patient care and clinical outcomes with fewer resources,” said Kieran Murphy, President and CEO of GE Healthcare. “By integrating data, intelligent software applications, and smart devices, we’re enabling clinicians to make faster, more informed decisions to give them time with what matters most: their patients.”
