Ultra-compact and energy-efficient CT technology for small animal practice: GE's Revolution ACT

GE Healthcare's Revolution ACT brings improvements in key areas such as image quality and resolution, coupled with enhanced workflow for the small animal veterinarian. This affordable CT incorporates the latest technologies from GE's long-standing CT expertise. Power consumption is sensationally low - allowing for significant cost savings.

The little giant is also extremely space-saving. The compact footprint is only about 10 m².  In addition, it has very low connected loads (40 kVA) and the 250 kHz high-frequency operation reduces audible noise. The low weight allows installation on normal reinforced concrete floors.  

The Revolution ACT shines with a new, professionally optimised user interface. In addition to the optional cross-sectional diagnostic station, we offer you a free diagnostic service for the first two months*. Because only with an accurate diagnosis can you choose the best treatment method.

Cross-sectional imaging station with the professional dicomPACS® solution incl. ORCA® cloud connection

dicomPACS®vet (optional) contains all the necessary tools for professional diagnosis of sectional images. Functions such as hanging protocols, cine loop, 3D curser, manual scrolling through series or the visualisation of the respective current and limiting section lines allow fast and professional work. Extended possibilities are offered with the functions MPR (Multi Planar Reconstruction) and MIP (Maximum Intensity Projection).

 

Report generation service - telemedicine via cloud

You can upload the images directly from dicomPACS®vet to the specialist network DiploVets - teleradiology and telemedicine for veterinarians and have them evaluated (without any obligation to purchase or other contractual commitment). You will receive a written report with detailed image documentation.
Only with an exact diagnosis can you choose the best treatment method.

--> You can use this diagnostic service free of charge for 2 months (limited to a total of 25 studies) after signing the contract.

 

Further optional modules and add-ons of dicomPACS® diagnsotic station

PACS Prothesendokumentation

dicomPACS®vet Pre-operative planning with the prosthesis documentation module
The dicomPACS® prosthesis documentation module allows you to plan and/or document operations. There are two ways to plan an operation with prosthesis templates. You can either insert digital templates into the X-ray image or use existing prosthesis templates.
 

PACS MobileView vet

dicomPACS®MobileView - the web-based viewer for mobile devices
The web-based viewer contains all the basic functions for viewing images. You can view images virtually with any browser on mobile devices. dicomPACS®MobileView offers vets a previously unknown degree of mobile freedom in the workplace inside and outside of equine clinic or vet practices, with the radiological image material available from anywhere.
 

PACS KU Modul vet

Report module for X-ray services relating to equine prepurchase examinations
This dicomPACS®vet report module enables the quick compilation of reports by automatically assembling X-ray images. It follows the “X-ray guideline” by the German organisations “Gesellschaft für Pferdemedizin e.V.” (non-profit organsation for equine medicine) and “Bundestierärztekammer e.V.” (Federal association of veterinarians). 
 

ORCA

ORCA® - storage of medical data (images and documents) as well as sharing via the internet 
ORCA
 (OR Technology Cloud Archiving) is a cloud-based platform specially designed for storing, viewing and sharing medical images and documents. ORCA® offers two exciting applications: ORCA Archive and ORCA Share.
