Gundersen Leads the Way in Radiation Safety for Wisconsin

Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin recently opened a newly renovated endoscopy suite dedicated to patient care and safety. Every decision was made with their patients in mind from pre- and post-operative care – including the equipment to be used.

The decision to go with Omega was a careful consideration made by GLMC’s advance team including Dr. Trey Folkers and Dr. Abdul Rehman. With different options on the market, their team wanted a system designed specifically for advanced endoscopy. They wanted a system that could be used in fluoro and non-fluoro procedures and was easy to use. For GLMC, that was the Omega E-View.AI.

The E-View.AI is the only lab designed with features specifically developed for ERCP and advanced endoscopic procedures.

  • ERCP motorized table for better patient positioning
  • Large field-of-view flat-panel detector offers superior image quality
  • Exclusive scatter radiation protection for staff
  • Pivots out of the way for full patient access and for non-fluoro procedures

At Gundersen Health, they take extra steps to keep their patients as healthy as possible. They take a proactive, vigorous approach to quality improvement – making it one of their key priorities. Gundersen has continually ranked near the top in the country in high-quality care to patients. At Gundersen, they have a motto: Love + Medicine is who we are. It’s more than just words, it’s their specialty.

The Omega E-View.AI is the only ERCP fluoro system on the market that uses advanced technology that delivers a significant reduction in radiation exposure to the patient and staff. Improved radiation safety is important to Gundersen and yet another way they are always improving their standard of care.

As the first facility in Wisconsin to go live with the E-View.AI system and their dedication to patient safety, we welcome the Gundersen team to the Omega Family!
