GE Healthcare and MediView XR, a clinical augmented reality med-tech company, announced today their collaboration to integrate medical imaging into mixed reality solutions through the development of the OmnifyXR Interventional Suite System.
MediView’s current technology platform leverages spatial computing and mixed reality, united with medical imaging in combining augmented reality visualization, seamless remote collaboration and evidence-based clinical insights.
The collaboration between the two organizations brings together MediView’s expertise in 3D augmented reality medical visualization, surgical navigation, telecollaboration capabilities and procedural data insights to enhance and simplify clinical decision making along with GE Healthcare’s superb interventional imaging technologies, digital infrastructure, data analytics, and clinical decision support capabilities.
“Augmented reality in imaging is key to improved visualization of anatomy and enhanced user experience. Our collaboration with MediView demonstrates our commitment to advancing the delivery of precision care by expanding the capabilities of our own imaging guided systems through an open architecture and the integration of promising and complementary technologies, like OmnifyXR Interventional Suite, into clinical workflow. Together, we can help clinicians use image guidance technologies to their full potential in order to help in the delivery of high-quality patient care,” said Arnaud Marie – General Manager for Global Interventional at GE Healthcare.
The OmnifyXR solution provides a heads-up, augmented reality display of interventional x-ray imaging systems using Microsoft’s latest HoloLens technology. The solution integrates multiple holographic displays of live imaging to help improve ergonomics regardless of working position and features 3D volume for improved anatomy visualization to help clinicians better assess complex anatomies and inform clinical decision making. The solution also features remote collaboration, enabling clinicians to partner from a distance, train, proctor and facilitate collaborative care.
GE Healthcare and MediView will co-market the solution and will explore opportunities for joint go-to-market efforts, with an initial market launch in the US and global expansion planned for the future.
