Signify Premium Insight: GE’s Allia Platform: An Intervention in a Lucrative Segment
Published: June 29, 2022
Because of the high-pressure situations in which it is used, and the inseparable link between imaging and treatment, interventional imaging is unique. Despite these peculiarities that set it apart from other kinds of imaging, it does share one almost universal challenge with its imaging kin: the need for greater workflow efficiency. Improving the efficiency of surgeries and reducing operational challenges are among the guiding tenets of GE Healthcare’s Allia platform. Ergonomics is one area where GE Healthcare has worked to improve surgeries, with one of the key developments being a wide-bore C-arm that is neither floor nor ceiling-mounted, a change which is hoped to make interventional rooms more navigable for clinicians.
