By staff writers

August 2, 2022 -- GE Healthcare has introduced Definium 656 HD, a new generation of its Definium premium fixed x-ray system that features a variety of artificial intelligence (AI)-based functionality.

Utilizing 3D camera technology, GE's Intelligent Workflow Suite is designed to yield more consistent images and avoid the need for retakes, according to the vendor. Technologists can also use a 12-inch touchscreen and GE's AutoRad software to employ automated in-room workflows, as well as manual workflow control, according to the vendor.

What's more, the overhead tube suspension system on Definium 656 HD supports five-axis motorization and autopositioning, enabling patients to automatically be positioned at any location in the room.

Other Definium 656 HD features include Auto Image Paste and AutoSpine for stitching of long images, and GE's VolumeRad digital tomosynthesis protocol.
