Advance your Clinical Capabilities

Our advanced clinical applications provide access to areas of uncertainties, helping you uncover information previously hidden within conventional 2D radiographic imaging.
  • Dual Energy Subtraction

    • Acquire multiple images within milliseconds at different energy levels.
    • Process and view the image as a standard radiographic image, an image with bones "subtracted," and an image of just the bones to highlight foreign objects or calcified structures.
  • Auto Image Paste

    • Acquire multiple images in one fast, seamless, highly automated exam.
    • Receive automatic stitching of the acquired images in a single composite image.
    • Perform these exams at either the wallstand or the table.

  • FlashPad Digital radiography detector

    At the heart of the Discovery XR656 Plus is FlashPad, GE's wireless, digital detector.
    FlashPad is unique in that it can be shared with other compatible GE digital radiographic products.
    Freedom to share makes your detector a sound investment today and into the future.

    • FlashPad uses Ultra-Wideband technology to help ensure an independent, se cure and reliable connection.
    • FlashPad is designed for digital use and built for reliability. Its two handles enable a secure grip.
  • Gain control over your workflow

    You can choose the configuration that best meets your clinical needs: a table, wallstand, or table and wallstand with either a single or dual detector offering. And, because FlashPad can be shared, a single detector can be all you need.

    Keep your patients comfortable. Capture images efficiently.

    • Discovery XR656 Plus configurations give you options for managing challenging imaging situations, such as wheelchair-bound, physically limited, elderly and trauma patients.
    • GE's FlashPad wireless detector frees your technologist to position quickly and easily to obtain complex views.
    • The elevating table has a weight capacity of 705lbs (320 Kg) in all motion to accommodate larger patients.
    • The Discovery XR656 Plus also has additional features and options that align to your clinical environment to drive productivity and workflow.
    • The in-room handheld remote control enables you to control major system functions and change setups for multiple exams without leaving the patient's side.
  • GE’s advanced automation, advanced clinical tools, intuitive interfaces and seamless transitions between image receptors help remove the barriers that can inhibit workflow.

    • Execute fast, easy setup and changes with the convenient user interface located at the overhead tube suspension.
    • Help enhance productivity by linking protocol views with image sizing with Auto-Field of View.
    • Evaluate staff performance and quality assurance efforts by capturing exam performance through the Repeat/Reject Analysis (RRA) Software.
    • With Auto-Protocol Assist, through the RIS interface, protocols are automatically selected and initiated, allowing the technologist to spend more time with the patient.
    • Achieve anatomy-based customization of images to match your clinical preferences with Auto-Processing and Image Distribution. After initial QC, automatically send images to the desired locations on your network.
  • Service you can count on!

    We realize that an investment in a digital detector is an important capital investment. With GE's Services portfolio, we'll keep you satisfied. Minimize downtime by instantly connecting your system with a GE digital services expert, to resolve any issues, remotely via GE's InSite remote service.

    • Our suite of maintenance service offerings is designed to help you get the most from your clinical assets in terms of uptime, clinical excellence and workflow efficiency, while meeting cost objectives without compromise.
    • As FlashPad detector can be shared between different GE X-ray systems. It comes with its own service contract, meaning that FlashPad is not tied to the system itself, or to its service contract.
    • GE Services offer you flexible, cost-effective maintenance solutions. Our team responds to support calls quickly so that you can maintain high uptime. We want you to be confident that your clinical equipment will run smoothly, allowing staff to care for your patients in the best possible way, and remain productive.

Clinical Cases

  • Had an implanted screw invaded the hip joint space?

    VolumeRAD study ordered. VolumeRAD allowed removal of overlying structures, helping to enable a confident diagnosis.
  • The definitive answer: no.

    A single-slice interval from the VolumeRAD data revealed that the implanted screw had not invaded the joint space. The patient underwent secondary surgery and proper implant placement was confirmed.
