Overview

Expand your service

Advancing the role of CT is no longer just about technology. It’s about design. That’s the promise of Revolution*. Understanding your needs. And designing the best solution to meet those needs.

Revolution EVO is designed for you. For your higher purpose.

With Revolution EVO, you can:

  • See more clearly. The new Clarity Imaging System provides up to 100% better spatial resolution over previous GE CT scanners1.
  • Make low dose routine. Our innovative ASiR-V* iterative reconstruction method lowers dose up to 82% for patients of all ages –- while still enabling you to maintain your work processes1,2.
  • Perform more studies in less time. With more intelligence and automation from patient preparation through post processing, you get up to 40% increased workflow efficiency3.
  • Grow into the future. Expand your services with advanced studies like TAVI planning, high heart rate CCTA and patients with implants.

1. Low contrast detectability (LCD), image noise, spatial resolution and artifacts 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.

2. In clinical practice, the use of ASiR–V 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. 

3. Actual results may vary depending on the circumstances, including but not limited to, exam type, clinical practice, and image reconstruction technique. This information was based on a simulation using the GE Healthcare Optima* CT660 device and is presented for illustrative purposes only.

An Evolution That is Reshaping Routine Low-Dose CT Imaging

“We are lowering the dose without compromising the quality.”
Dr. Jens Kneisel

Designed to redefine the way people think about CT, GE’s Revolution™ EVO can support a wide variety of patients and help healthcare providers improve workflow and increase productivity. In expert hands, Revolution EVO provides high-resolution, low-dose images, even when performing advanced procedures.

The team at Radiology at Klinikum Itzehoe, a private radiology practice in Itzehoe, Germany, recently transitioned to Revolution EVO to take advantage of these many benefits.

Patient Benefits

Make low-dose routine 

Diagnostic images at the right dose add up to great care. That’s why it’s essential for you to limit your patients’ radiation exposure to just what’s necessary. To do that, you need a CT that makes it easier for you to lower radiation dose without making it harder to make the right diagnosis. 

Revolution* EVO delivers several dose-lowering capabilities. Our innovative ASiR-V* iterative reconstruction comes standard, and is designed to reduce noise levels, improve low-contrast detectability and reduce dose by up to 82% in routine imaging for all exams and all patients1,2

Along with ASiR-V, a comprehensive collection of Smart Dose technologies helps you monitor, measure and manage your dose delivery and select the optimum parameters to ensure low dose and diagnostic images. Dose management tools such as CT 4Kids dose-optimized pediatric reference scan protocols, 3D Dose Modulation, Organ Dose Modulation, Dose Check, DoseWatch*, DICOM DRSR and more are all at your fingertips4.

User Benefits

Perform more studies in less time

The only thing you can predict for sure about your workday is how unpredictable it will be. Unanticipated complex exams, large numbers of emergency department exams, add-on patients and patients who arrive late all put pressure on you to get more done in your day. You need a CT that helps you and your staff get through the chaos calmly and efficiently. Revolution* EVO is designed to help you manage unpredictable patient loads and unexpected exam demands—quickly and compassionately. 

Revolution EVO features the latest in Smart Flow technologies designed to help you improve productivity by streamlining user workflow and access to information. With more intelligence and automation from patient preparation through post processing, you can perform more studies in less time and manage your patient flow up to 40% more efficiently3.

Reconstruction of images in real time helps you focus solely on the diagnosis of your patient. With Image Check, up to 55 images are reconstructed and available per second. For trauma patients, when the extent of the injuries is unknown, you can prospectively prescribe up to 10 multiphase reconstructions and easily prioritize which one you need first.

With IQ enhance pitch booster, you can scan a chest as fast as two seconds with 175-mm-per-second acquisition speed to help shorten patient breath-holds while maintaining image quality.

Technology

Clarity Imaging System 

For Revolution* EVO, we redesigned the entire imaging chain using the new Clarity detector inherited from the breakthrough technology introduced on Revolution CT.  

Performix 40 Plus tube 

At the beginning of the Clarity imaging chain, the Performix* 40 Plus tube delivers exceptional performance. Its stable dual focal spot improves precision and its 0.35-second routine rotation speed enables faster scan times. 

ASiR-V 

ASiR-V comes standard and focuses primarily on more advanced noise and object modeling with added physics modeling to help reduce noise, improve low-contrast detectability, and reduce artifacts.

  • Routinely image with up to 82% less dose1,2Combining the speed of ASiR* with added capabilities from Veo* full model-based iterative reconstruction, the novel ASiR-V* iterative reconstruction algorithm brings low dose and improved quality to routine imaging. 
  • Up to 100% better spatial resolution. ASiR-V has the capability to improve spatial resolution compared to FBP by allowing the reconstruction of higher-resolution images with no increase in image noise. 
  • Up to 135% improved low-contrast detectability. ASiR-V improves the detectability of low-contrast objects by up to 135% when compared to corresponding FBP reconstructions at the same dose. 
  • Up to 91% less image noise. Depending upon the scan technique and reconstruction parameters, ASiR-V can significantly reduce electronic image noise compared to FBP at the same dose. 
  • Less streak artifact. ASiR-V has the capability to reduce low-signal artifact, such as streak artifact, compared to FBP.

  • SnapShot* Assist. SnapShot Assist advises you of the best acquisition technique based on the patient’s heart rate conditions. 
  • SnapShot Pulse. Prospective gating with SnapShot Pulse allows for a dose reduction of up to 83% for coronary imaging. 
  • SnapShot Freeze. Reducing motion blurring in vessels by up to a factor of six, SnapShot Freeze facilitates your diagnosis by freezing coronary motion even in higher-heart-rate coronary CT exams, delivering 58-msec-equivalent gantry speed5.

Simpler scan solutions with dual-energy imaging  

Dual-energy imaging allows easy configuration of back-to-back axial or helical scans of the same anatomy at two different X-ray energies (kVs). The dual-energy data can be quickly post-processed right on the console or on the Advantage Workstation with easy image registration and one-click ROI ratio for simple analysis.
