IU Updates Labs with Omega Medical Imaging

Three New e-view MPs added to IU’s Endo Unit

Renowned for their consistent top position in GI programs nationally, the Indiana University Division of Gastroenterology/Hepatology is a powerhouse in the field of interventional endoscopy.

Founded in 1958, the unit has flourished over the last two decades, performing a breadth of endoscopic procedures including; endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS).

Clinical strengths and expertise of the Gastroenterology/Hepatology division extend far beyond the procedure portfolio found in a general GI lab. Research is extensive, both laboratory-based and patient-oriented, allowing the unit to provide the best care available.

Confirming their commitment to the advancement of interventional endoscopy, the ERCP suite at IU recently completed a $10 million renovation. A portion of the renovation included three new Omega Medical Imaging e-view MP fluoroscopic C-arms, replacing tilt C’s from Philips and Toshiba.

The Omega Medical Imaging e-view MP fluoro imaging system is the only fully integrated, dedicated x-ray imaging solution for ERCP and Image guided endoscopic procedures. Unlike general diagnostic imaging systems, the  e-view MP offers features optimized specifically for guidance in ERCP and GI procedures.

• Unique lead shielding above and below the table provides additional protection to staff from harmful scatter radiation.
• Fully motorized C-arm and table for enhanced image quality and duct drainage.
• 800lbs capacity, extra wide table to accommodate a wide range of patients.
• C-arm rotates providing a full 360° access to the patient.

The e-view is a complete system including C-arm, patient table, imaging system, and display module fully integrated to provide optimum clinical results and financial value.

Innovations in Interventional Imaging

The technology of interventional X-ray systems has evolved. There was a time when not every system used pulsed fluoro. That technology is now standard – as it should be. The same with flat panels. It’s inconceivable to think of a cutting-edge system without flat panel technology. Today, the same should
