Discovery IGS 730 for Hybrid OR

Invest in outstanding imaging technology with the added flexibility of a mobile C-arm to perform both complex endovascular procedures and open surgeries without compromise.

Rediscover space and movement.

The Discovery* IGS 730 angiography system brings both extremely high-quality imaging and complete workspace freedom to the hybrid operating room to perform cardiac angulations without compromising detector coverage for endovascular procedures.

Its unique mobile platform brings all the power of a fixed imaging system to the table, yet it can be moved aside, so multi-disciplinary teams can complete procedures comfortably, with unobstructed access to patients.

High-end fluoroscopy image guidance, advanced applications, 3D image fusion - it all comes on a sophisticated gantry that travels on predefined paths with laser-guided precision.

Now one room accommodates a wide range of endovascular, cardiac, hybrid and open surgical procedures, free of interference from fixed floor or ceiling system structures.

The Discovery IGS 730 lets you:

  • Rethink your possibilities with predictable motion and patient access.
  • Reinvent the way you work with high-precision imaging.
  • Re-evaluate your options with flexible room layouts.


Rethink your possibilities.

With the Discovery™ IGS 730 gantry, nothing on the floor or ceiling obstructs your work or limits your mobility - your freedom is nearly absolute. An untethered, laser-guided gantry carries the imaging C-arm. You can move it to the table to image any part of the anatomy, then power it back, out of the way, to precise pre-chosen positions.

Movable gantry puts clinicians in control.

The Discovery IGS 730 provides full flexibility in your clinical space. Controls available at tableside and at the back of the gantry let you maneuver the system easily and conveniently. When in position for imaging, the gantry swivels around the table on a defined path, with precise laser guidance. Combined gantry and GE OR table movement enables you to stop and image at any point for coverage from head to toe.

One-touch back-in and back-out means fully flexible procedures.

With the Discovery IGS 730, you can truly have it both ways: Move the gantry to the table for imaging, move it aside when needed - and all at the touch of a button.

Teams work better with nothing in their way.

The Discovery IGS 730 gives physicians, nurses, anesthesiologists and technologists ample space to work together effectively. Clinicians can position on either side of the patient, according to preference. With the offset C-arm, the anesthesiologist can work comfortably at the patient's head.

Customized parking provides the maximum freedom.

When it's not needed for imaging, you can move the gantry aside completely, allowing complete patient access at the table and enabling easy room cleaning. You can pre-configure two parking spaces to suit your room size and shape.

Reinvent the way you work.

Enjoy the power of fluoroscopy for precise, real-time image guidance, 3D rotational angiography with CT-like imaging and fusion of prior 3D images from multiple modalities. Expand your clinical versatility and successfully plan, guide and assess increasingly sophisticated procedures with greater precision and dose efficiency with the latest generation of GE's advanced interventional imaging software solutions, ASSIST.

Discovery IGS 730

Optimal detector size adds clinical versatility

With the 31 x 31 cm (12.2 in) detector, the Discovery IGS 730 is designed to provide optimal coverage for a wide range of interventional and surgical procedures. The detector is the heart of a proven image chain entirely engineered and built by GE providing Detective Quantum Efficiency (DQE) that ranks among the highest available.

Easily accommodate large patients and facilitate imaging

Discovery IGS 730

With a full 129 cm (50 in) of space between the tube and the detector, the Discovery IGS 730 features a large bore. It provides collision-free 3D imaging to let you image large patients easily and perform cone-beam CT acquisition even for patients with arms down and intubated.

Achieve lower dose by design

The Discovery IGS 730 lets you choose the image quality you want while you strive for the lowest achievable dose. Multiple strategies of dose saving on the Discovery IGS 730 and with fusion imaging in Lille helped the team to achieve median Dose Area Product (DAP) of only 12.2 Gycm1 for standard bifurcated EVAR and 43.7 Gy.cm1 for complex fenestrated EVAR procedures1,2. Additionally, when fusing a pre operative 3D model over fluoroscopy 2D-3D image fusion with BiView registration helps achieve up to 99% radiation dose savings, enhancing safety3.

OR Solutions

Re-evaluate your options

Use precious space well with flexible room designs. Build your room into a new fully functional hybrid OR, re-configure a small room, or re-purpose an existing room. You can install the Discovery IGS 7 in rooms as small as 35 square meters (377 square feet).6 You'll have the potential to increase the procedure mix in your OR with exceptional equipment for minimally invasive procedures.

Suspension-free design removes a source of contamination

The mobile gantry leaves the room ceiling suspension-free, helping prevent contamination from airborne agents. It allows laminar flow above the surgical field even when in position for imaging, helping to meet the criteria for ISO 5 classification.7

Sterile draping adds protection

The detector and tube can be easily fitted with sterile covers specially designed not to interfere with any gantry or detector motion. Sterile drapes attach quickly and easily inside the C-arm using four simple side-mounted clasps.3

GE OR table for endovascular and open procedures

A long free-floating tabletop (333 cm) with power-assisted motion facilitates panning for heavy patients with up to 170 cm of longitudinal table travel and accommodates long catheters. The OR Table with covers and tableside user interfaces is specifically designed to reach the IPX4 level. Removable rails can be installed during the procedure by sliding the sleeve onto the table to accommodate retractors and other surgical or comfort accessories.3


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.
