Notre Dame, Purdue and GE Healthcare partner on new CT technology
Date:12/6/2011

Demonstrating their shared legacy of innovative research and commitment to patient-centered medical technology, the University of Notre Dame, Purdue University and GE Healthcare have announced the commercial availability of a new CT scanning technology, called Veo, that enables physicians to diagnose patients with high clarity images at previously-unattainable low radiation dose levels.

CT is an advanced form of spiral x-ray technology that physicians use to help diagnosis disease in their patients including cancer, cardiac and neurological diseases, and other conditions with the goal of significantly improving treatment plans and patient health outcomes. Since it was invented in the 1970s, CT scanning has helped save and improve millions of lives. Still, physicians and patients have traditionally had to balance the tremendous benefits of CT with the patient's exposure to limited medical radiation dose used during scanning. As such, the public's awareness of CT's benefits and the potential risks from a radiation perspective has grown in recent years.

Veo has changed the equation helping healthcare professionals provide accurate diagnoses with high clarity images at astonishingly low radiation dose levels.

"Veo technology is a game-changer, plain and simple," said Steve Gray, vice president and general manager of CT and Advantage Workstation for GE Healthcare. "Traditionally in CT there has been a trade-off between high image quality for the physician and low radiation dose for the patient. We're hearing from hospitals that this trade-off is beginning to dissipate, as Veo delivers startlingly clear images at unprecedented low dose levels."

The world's first Model-Based Iterative Reconstruction technology, Veo is built on an advanced algorithm that was developed jointly by researchers at Purdue, Notre Dame and GE Healthcare. The three organizations signed a commercialization agreement allowing Veo to be commercialized throug
