  • GE HealthCare and MediView XR, Inc. announce the first installation and clinical use of augmented reality solution OmnifyXR Interventional Suite at North Star Vascular and Interventional in Minnesota.
  • Heads-up holographic display aims to transform the interventional room and help advance the delivery of precision care across a variety of interventional procedures.

CHICAGO: Today GE HealthCare (Nasdaq: GEHC), a leading global medical technology, pharmaceutical diagnostics, and digital solutions innovator, and MediView XR Inc., a leading clinical augmented reality med-tech company, announced the successful first installation and clinical cases using the OmnifyXR Interventional Suite1 at North Star Vascular and Interventional in Minneapolis, Minnesota. This innovative augmented reality-based interventional radiology suite combines a holographic heads-up display streaming live medical imaging, 3D anatomy model visualization and advanced imaging technologies, while enabling the opportunity for remote collaboration to help advance the delivery of precision care across a variety of interventional procedures.

Image-guided therapy is a fast-evolving space that leverages advanced imaging and visualization solutions to make it possible to treat many conditions, from cancer care to cardiovascular disease and more, with little to no surgical incisions. However, while performing these different interventional procedures, practitioners face many challenges - from positioning restrictions that obscure visual interface and display access, to time consuming workspace adjustments.

To address these challenges, OmnifyXR was designed to fit seamlessly into existing interventional suites and leverages augmented reality to support workflow efficiency and ergonomics, improved visualization, and collaborative care.

OmnifyXR leverages augmented reality innovation and is designed to support clinicians in the following ways:

  • Workflow efficiency and ergonomics: Heads-up display (HUD) headset holographically displays multiple imaging video streams in a customizable way to create opportunities for improved ergonomics regardless of working position. Clinicians can simultaneously display up to four video streams (such as Live Fluoroscopy, Reference Image, Advantage Workstation Image, Ultrasound and Hemodynamics); customize the size, angle and orientation to meet workflow needs; and utilize voice commands for hands-free interaction with the application.
  • Improved visualization of anatomy with 3D Assist: Designed to augment visualization and help in the assessment of complex anatomies, clinicians can interact with a holographic 3D model of the patient’s anatomy to support intraprocedural planning.
  • Collaborative care: To allow for remote collaboration, consultation, training, proctoring and support, users can provide first-person view of their holographic experience through any internet-connected device to allow for collaborative care from any location.

In the world’s first clinical use of OmnifyXR, Professor of Radiology and founder of North Star Vascular and Interventional Dr. Jafar Golzarian2 performed two separate clinical procedures – the embolization of a genicular artery and the embolization of a prostate artery.

“The heads-up display and augmented reality capabilities of OmnifyXR, especially the 3D anatomical view offered by the hologram scan, are game-changing and allow for new perspectives into treatment we haven’t seen before,” said Dr. Jafar Golzarian of North Star Vascular and Interventional. “I’m excited to be on the team performing these first cases and look forward to seeing how this may help improve clinical and operational outcomes for both patients and clinicians.”

“OmnifyXR will change the way I approach my cases,” shared Dr. Amin Astani3 of North Star Vascular and Interventional. “With GE HealthCare’s Allia platform, I can create a highly detailed 3D generated model in a matter of minutes without having to remove my sterile gloves to help maintain sterility during the procedure. Using MediView’s OmnifyXR, I can virtually place this 3D model anywhere in the room - allowing me to walk around it and evaluate it from different angles and perspectives in order to make more informed decisions about the way I approach and navigate my procedures.”

OmnifyXR is a MediView product developed in collaboration with GE HealthCare and is currently available in the United States, with global expansion to follow. OmnifyXR is available exclusively with GE HealthCare interventional X-ray systems, such as the Allia IGS platform and Innova IGS platform with AutoRight, that utilize digital video distribution.
