Discover how University Hospital Donostia and
Jena University Hospital improved their ED practices
Jena University hospital in Germany that upgraded their
emergency department (ED) with a Revolution™ CT and ASiR-V™1, GE’s blended Iterative Reconstruction algorithm.
Empowered by these technologies, the clinic has created a new set of clinical protocols called “the Big Five”
that combine stroke and chest pain management in the ED to further enhance patient care and increase clinical
Unicersity Hospital Donostia in Spain installed Revolution™ EVO and ASiR-V to increase efficiency
and accuracy in CT scans while lowering dose for thousands of stroke and polytrauma patients each year.
1. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR, ASiR-V and Veo may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task. ASiR-V low contrast detectability (LCD), image noise, spatial resolution and artifact were assessed using reference factory protocols comparing ASiR-V and FBP. The LCD measured in 0.625 mm slices and tested for both head and body modes using the MITA CT IQ Phantom (CCT183, The Phantom Laboratory), using model observer method.
ASiR-V is available for Revolution EVO, HD & CT.
