The announcement was made at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America. It included the announcement of GE Healthcare’s new Nvidia-powered Revolution Frontier computed tomography (CT) scanner, advancements to its Vivid E95 4D cardiovascular ultrasound system, and the development of GE Healthcare’s Applied Intelligence analytics platform.

Due to its use of Nvidia’s AI computing platform, GE Healthcare’s new Revolution CT system is claimed to be two times faster in imaging processing than its predecessor. As a result, it is expected to deliver better clinical outcomes in liver and kidney lesion detection and characterization – potentially reducing the need for unnecessary follow-ups.

“Our partnership with GE Healthcare brings together great expertise in medical instruments and AI to create a new generation of intelligent instruments that can dramatically improve patient care,” says Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of Nvidia.

The Vivid E95 4D Ultrasound System uses Nvidia GPUs to provide fast, accurate visualization and quantification while streamlining workflows across the cSound software-based imaging platform. Nvidia GPUs accelerate reconstruction and visualization of blood flow and improve 2D and 4D imaging.

The new GE Healthcare Applied Intelligence analytics platform will use Nvidia GPUs, the Nvidia CUDA parallel computing platform, and the Nvidia GPU Cloud container registry to accelerate the creation, deployment, and consumption of deep learning algorithms in new healthcare analytic applications that will be integrated into clinical and operational workflows and equipment.

“Healthcare is changing at remarkable speed, and the technologies that will transform the industry should reflect that pace,” says Kieran Murphy, President and CEO of GE Healthcare. “By partnering with NVIDIA, GE Healthcare will be able to deliver devices of the future – intelligent machines capable of empowering providers to improve the speed and accuracy of diagnoses for patients around the world.”
