GE Healtcare develops new high definition 1.5T breast MR scanner

GE Healthcare : 26 November, 2007  (New Product)
The GE Signa Vibrant is a dedicated 1.5T breast MR scanner developed by GE Healthcare to utilise high definition technology and applications specifically designed for breast MR.
The applications include:

- Vibrant acquisition.

- BREASE spectroscopy.

- Integrated CADstream (manufactured by Confirma).

- A specially designed breast MR patient table that provides optimal imaging and outstanding access for intervention.

Signa Vibrant features a patient-friendly design, ideally suited for the environment of many breast-imaging centres.

“This new breast MR scanner is a reflection of our dedication to customer feedback,” said David Handler, general manager of global MR product marketing. “Earlier this year, the American Cancer Society (ACS) announced a new recommendation for annual MR exams in addition to mammograms for patients determined by their physicians to be at especially high-risk.” He added: “We believe GE’s new Signa Vibrant scanner will be a great choice for many women’s imaging centers or breast imaging programs. In addition, because of the friendly design, we also believe this product may help alleviate some of the anxiety women feel about breast MRI exams.”

In addition to improving patient comfort, GE is also focused on increasing public awareness and knowledge of breast cancer. With that in mind, GE will apply a portion of the proceeds from Signa Vibrant sales toward breast cancer education and awareness programmes.
