Free yourself from the rails

Free yourself from the constraints of fixed ceiling-mounted systems’ rails with the Discovery IGS 740 mobile angiography system. The untethered Discovery IGS 740 offers amazing siting and room design flexibility. Practice with exceptional comfort and control with Discovery’s rail-free design and flexible wide bore C-arm positioning. And its ample detector covers large anatomies in both 2D and 3D.

With the Discovery IGS 740: 

  • Put yourself at the center of your procedures with liberating rail-free design
  • Design your room with amazing flexibility
  • See large anatomies in one view with an exceptionally large detector
  • Perform fast and easy 3D acquisitions with a wide bore

Benefits

Put yourself at the center of your procedures.

With nothing in your way, you can image the anatomy of interest easily, position your monitors freely, and access your patients completely from the left or right side on the Discovery IGS 740.

Liberating rail-free design

The Discovery IGS 740’s swiveling wheeled gantry moves freely on the floor, not on the ceiling, eliminating overhead rails. So you can place your monitors exactly where you need them for comfortable viewing without straining.

Discovery IGS 740 ample wide-bore C-arm

Large wide-bore C-arm

The Discovery IGS 740 has a wide bore C-arm. The combination of this wide bore and the large 41 x 41 cm detector enables to image patient in 3D at any point of the anatomy without collision even for large patients with BMI up to 40. Thanks to its wide bore, Discovery IGS 740 allows 3D imaging for at least 95% of the America’s adult population and potentially more than 95% of the world’s adult population.

Discovery IGS 740 arm positions

Dedicated arm imaging positions1

Perform procedures such as left arm fistulograms comfortably with the Discovery IGS 740’s dedicated arm imaging positions.

See large anatomies in one view.

Cover large anatomies such as the liver or both legs simultaneously, with fewer runs than smaller detectors, for efficient use of contrast and dose.

An exceptionally large detector

With its broad 41 x 41 cm (16.1 in) digital detector, the Discovery IGS 740 system boasts one of the largest fields of view for interventional imaging. Moreover, the GE-proprietary digital detector delivers one of the industry’s highest levels of DQE, the accepted measure of X-ray detector dose efficiency.

Extended coverage in 2D

With InnovaBreeze1*, take full advantage of the Discovery IGS 740’s very large field-of-view and follow the contrast bolus in both legs in real time using variable panning speed control.

Discovery IGS 740 large organs in 3D

Large organs in 3D

Combine the wide-bore C-arm and the 41 x 41 cm (16.1 in) digital detector, and see large organs like the liver in 3D. Then use FlightPlan for Liver1 to help you identify tumor-feeding vessels in a few clicks and be selective during your liver embolization.

Design your room with amazing flexibility.

By eliminating the rails of ceiling-mounted systems, the Discovery IGS 740 frees up your ceiling entirely for more flexibility in designing your room.

Drawing the ideal room

With no rails on the ceiling blocking where to position ceiling-mounted ancillaries, the Discovery IGS 740 gives you flexibility to draw the location of your monitors, lights, and rad-shields where you need them to be. And with two customizable parking positions, the Discovery IGS 740 adapts to suit your room size and shape.

No reinforced ceiling structure needed

With the mobile Discovery IGS 740 system, there’s no need for long and complex
infrastructure improvements to reinforce your room’s ceiling structure.

 Discovery IGS 740 precious space

Siting in precious space

Whether you’re building a new room, re-purposing an existing room, or re-configuring a small room, the Discovery IGS 740 lets you use precious space efficiently. Fit the Discovery IGS 740 in rooms as small as just 35 square meters (377 square feet), for a wider choice of siting options in situations where space is at a premium.

ASSIST

Power up your clinical decision making

The interventional field is growing with ever-expanding capabilities and migration to less invasive, safer and more cost-efficient procedures. With the new generation of GE's advanced interventional imaging software, ASSIST, you can expand your clinical versatility and successfully plan, guide and assess increasingly sophisticated procedures with greater precision and dose efficiency.

FlightPlan for Liver helps you be selective during your liver embolization procedure. It automatically highlights vessels traveling from the catheter tip to the vicinity of a liver hypervascular lesion in few clicks.

FlightPlan for Liver helps you be selective during your liver embolization procedure. It automatically highlights vessels traveling from the catheter tip to the vicinity of a liver hypervascular lesion in few clicks.

Once ready, you can send the FlightPlan for Liver 3D model to Innova Vision with a single click and use it as a 3D roadmap to guide catheters across tortuous vessels and bifurcations, helping you perform the embolization with confidence.

Needle ASSIST

Performing needle procedures in the interventional suite frees up your CT system and provides exceptional access to the patient. However, under fluoroscopic guidance, it may be challenging and time-consuming to find the right entry point and advance the needle while avoiding critical structures.

With Volume Viewer and Trajectory Planning, you can plan the procedure using outstanding 3D information and determine the optimal skin entry points and needle paths.

With Innova TrackVision, you can guide your needle along the trajectory that will follow the C-arm angulation and table movement. Plus, a dedicated algorithm overlays the bone anatomy and helps you correct for even small patient motion, helping to facilitate accurate needle trajectory registration at any time during your procedure.

At this stage, you can assess the needle placement with an Innova 3D acquisition helping you visualize the position of the needle in the lung prior performing the ablation.
