GE Healthcare has announced FDA 510(k) clearance for a new surgical imaging system capable of 3D and 2D imaging.
OEC 3D offers interoperative 3D imaging with precise volumetric images for spine and orthopedic procedures, according to GE Healthcare. It combines the benefits and familiarity of 2D imaging with OEC C-arms, delivering a familiar user experience with the added benefit of quickly capturing a 3D scan, the company added.
OEC 3D also offers a 19 cm x 19 cm x 19 cm field of view with high resolution and detail. An advanced reconstruction engine presents images on an intuitive viewer with tools and analysis for surgical assessment. The system is also open to interface with advanced intraoperative technologies such as navigation and robotics.
“We’re thrilled to introduce OEC 3D to clinicians who want amazing 3D volumetric images quickly during intraoperative procedures,” said Gustavo Perez Fernandez, president & CEO of GE Healthcare Image Guided Therapies, in a news release. “Built on the successful OEC Elite C-arm platform, the familiar performance and functionality of the OEC 3D C-arm will make 3D imaging routine for complex spine and joint replacement procedures.”
