Cardiovascular & electrophysiology procedures in the cath lab

Innova™ IGS 520 is a floor-mounted image-guided system for cardiovascular and electrophysiology procedures in the cath lab.

Empowering Critical Thinking

The Innova IGS 520 system offers a comprehensive suite of functionality customized for a wide range of EP procedures. With its 20.5 x 20.5 cm (8.1 in) square flat-panel digital detector, it offers excellent visualization of the heart and its chambers. The system is designed from the ground to provide the image clarity you need while helping you keep dose as low as possible. It includes features like Dose Personalization1, which gives you the tools to choose from up to four automatic exposure preferences for your system2. You can also modify3 any of these preferences in any clinical protocol to enable multi-procedure, multi-user customization and thus support well-informed decisions.

Innova IGS 520 features a 3.75 frames per second fluoroscopic acquisition mode optimized for EP procedures.

Simple, centralized, automated controls

Control your system and images with integrated, intuitive tableside controls. With simple menus, the Central touchscreen lets you control most system functions, configure the system, modify imaging parameters, control your large display monitor6, and manipulate advanced applications – all at the tableside. The comfortable, easy-to-grasp control knob makes it easy to pan the table, position the gantry, and perform procedures.

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 solutions, ASSIST, you can expand your clinical versatility and successfully plan, guide and assess increasingly sophisticated procedures with greater precision and dose efficiency.

EP catheter ablations

Cardiac ablation is an invasive procedure performed to correct heart arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. Ablation typically uses catheters - long, flexible tubes inserted through a vein in the groin and advanced to the heart to correct or scar the abnormal electrical circuits that are causing the arrhythmia. Ultimately, ablation prevents abnormal electrical signals from traveling through the heart and restores normal heart rhythm.


Plan

Plan your procedure with Innova Spin, which provides a dynamic fluoroscopic image of the atrium filled with contrast to help localize the abnormal tissue that is causing the arrhythmia.



Guide

Guide your procedure with HeartVision*, an advanced visualization application that fuses a pre-acquired 3D image from CT, MR or rotational angiography over a live fluoroscopic image. Points may be tagged on the image to help provide reference to structures and ablation points throughout the procedure.



Assess

Assess the success of the procedure using Cardiolab* - it allows you to review ECG and intra-cardiac signals after the ablation procedure to ensure clinical success.


Vessel ASSIST 2 4 for Left Atrial Appendage Closure


Plan

Segment easily the atrium in a single click. Measure the appendage neck. Define and mark in advance trans-septal perforation.



Guide

Guide with confidence your trans-septaI puncture and device deployment with pre-op CT overlay.



Assess

Ultrasound imaging 5 can be integrated to our Large display monitor 6. All information coverage in one place to help you make fast decision.

In clinical use, the results of the application of dose reduction techniques will vary depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. The Interventional radiologist, assisted by a physicist as necessary has to determine the appropriate settings for each specific clinical task.
