Building on the foundation of its Xeleris workstation, GE Healthcare recently introduced, at the Society of Nuclear Medicine, Xeleris 2, an advanced nuclear medicine review workstation. A highlight of the new system is xeleris floating license (XFL), which allows in nuclear medicine the ability for clinicians to read and process NM images from their own PCs throughout the institution.
Recently installed at Aultman Hospital (Canton, Ohio) Xeleris 2 with the XFL option is helping Aultman reshape its commitment to improving health by providing high-quality health care to the surrounding communities in Stark County.
Innovative in its design, Xeleris 2 enables virtually all of a department’s nuclear medicine imaging systems to connect to a single workstation, further accelerating the entire imaging process. This is made possible by GE’s exclusive DirectConnects feature, which standardizes reading tools and calculation methods for different makes and generations of nuclear medicine equipment.
“Xeleris fulfills Aultman’s clinical needs by providing a single seamless processing platform to use with numerous vendors in our department, including PET and reprocessing from PACS,” said Elizabeth Getz, VP of radiology, Aultman Hospital. The workstation was installed at the beginning of this year and has been used by radiologists throughout the hospital with the XFL option. “The XFL software allows our department to have the option to place multiple workstations at key processing centers.”
Featuring a user-friendly and intuitive user interface, Xeleris 2 simplifies workflow for clinicians by allowing the replacement and removal of many competitive devices. One of the industry’s fastest functional imaging workstations available, according to GE, the Xeleris 2 also modernizes older GE nuclear medicine cameras, adding newer and more efficient applications and serviceability tools while maintaining compatibility with old peripherals and archive media.
