Motion Freeze

INTERVENTIONAL: Motion Freeze

When breathing gets in your way, clear it up with Motion Freeze

As a pioneering solution within the Interventional space, Motion Freeze can help salvage CBCT acquisitions by refining and increasing small contrasted structures in CBCT images that would have otherwise been discarded due to involuntary respiratory motion artifacts.

With a fast post-reconstruction option, streamline procedure workflow which can help to recover(7), rather than discard, initial CBCT acquisitions.

By potentially reducing the need to repeat CBCT acquisitions, Motion Freeze may help minimize radiation dose and contrast media injection. Thus, by helping to salvage, rather than discard, initial CBCT images, Motion Freeze may enable access to advanced solutions.

Fast Facts

  • certificate
    1st commercialized solution2 that compensates for involuntary respiratory motion artifacts on Interventional CBCT.
  • alert
    Physicians estimate that up to 40%3 of CBCT acquisitions are unusable due to involuntary respiratory motion artifacts.
  • respiratory system
    In up to 25%3 of CBCT images affected by involuntary respiratory motion, Motion Freeze, by potentially reducing the need to repeat CBCT acquisitions, may help minimize radiation dose and contrast media injection.
  • users
    39% (1.9 billion) of the world adult population is overweight (BMI<25) or obese.4 These patients may have more difficulties holding their breath during the intervention. Motion Freeze provides an additional option for physicians to use CBCT even if they are affected by involuntary respiratory motion artifacts.
  • add
    Facilitate access to advanced solutions such as FlightPlan for Liver, delivering results up to: 97% improved sensitivity in identifying tumor feeding vessels, 30% less mean number of DSA, 11% reduction in procedure time for a single TACE session5 and ~68% complete tumor response versus DSA alone (36%)6 .

*The improvement related to Motion Freeze depends on the acquisition conditions, table position, patient, type of motion, anatomical location and clinical
practice. Motion Freeze is an optional feature of 3DXR (part of GE vascular systems IGS 5, IGS 6 and IGS 7 or IGS 7OR). 3DXR cannot be placed on the
market or put into service until it has been made to comply with all required regulatory authorizations including the Medical Device Directive requirements
for CE marking. Motion Freeze cannot be marketed in countries where market authorization is required and not yet obtained. Refer to your sales representative.
