Written by Mackenzie Garrity | December 05, 2017 | Print  |

GE Healthcare and Nvidia are teaming up to upgrade GE's 500,000 medical imaging devices worldwide, according to ZD Net.

Here are five insights:


1. Under the partnership, GE will use Revolution Frontier CT, which claims to be two times faster than its previous generation of image processors. GE will also take advantage of Nvidia GPU Cloud to allow more data to be analyzed.


2. GE hopes using Revolution Frontier CT will reduce the number of follow-up appointments and number of non-interpretable scans.


3. Kieran Murphy, president and CEO of GE Healthcare, told ZD Net, "Healthcare is changing at remarkable speed, and the technologies that will transform the industry should reflect that pace. 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."


4. GE also recently extended its partnership with Intel. Through the partnership, GE will utilize Xeon Scalable, which is designed to reduce the amount of time radiologists spend waiting for imaging.


5. Intel and GE are currently developing a Joint Performance Acceleration Lab in Chicago to conduct research across the imaging field.
