GE Healthcare will highlight its advanced range of innovative diagnostic technologies at the third Arabian Radiology Congress from April 29 to May 2, 2010, at the King Hussein Bin Talal Convention Center at The Dead Sea in Jordan.
GE Healthcare will feature more than 20 international speakers and over 100 specialized lectures on wide-ranging topics that address the challenges and advances in modern diagnostic services.
During the Arab Radiological Congress (ARC) 2010, GE Healthcare aims to enhance awareness on the need for ‘earlier healthcare’ and to promote healthymagination, GE’s vision to develop innovations focused on reducing costs, improving quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery.
In addition, GE Healthcare will launch its groundbreaking Optima CT660, a Computed Tomography (CT) product -both GE ecomagination certified and healthymagination validated.
Moreover, there will be Optima CT660 is a brand new total body scanner, suitable for all clinical applications including cardiac. It includes flow down technologies and applications from the well known GE’s Discovery CT750 HD and the LightSpeed VCT scanners, such as ASiR ultra low dose reduction technique.
Elie Chahoud, General Manager – Levant region of GE Healthcare, said, “We are very pleased to be a part of the Arab Radiology Congress again this year and privileged to present to industry experts, institutions and the public the latest GE Healthcare innovations. It is also an educational platform that provides radiologists in the region insights into the new technologies and solutions.”
Further, GE introduces Vscan – a pocket-sized, ultraportable, easy-to-use visualization tool – launched earlier at Arab Health 2010. Vscan has the potential to redefine the way doctors examine patients and ultimately help improve patient care by enhancing the physical exam and enabling more rapid diagnosis at the point of care.
GE also spotlights GE’s Discovery CT750 HD, a CT scanner which delivers fine detail with its Gemstone detector. This one tube, one detector scanner allows dual energy spectral imaging which improves significantly image quality, reduces artifacts and help characterize lesions.
GE Healthcare recently signed with Jordan Hospital, a premier healthcare provider in Amman, to equip the hospital with the latest diagnostic equipment solutions including the Kingdom’s first-ever high definition computed tomography (CT) diagnostic equipment – the Discovery CT750 HD and Signa 1.5T HDxT magnetic resonance (MR) system.
