The GE OEC Brivo was introduced in 2013 and has one of the new GE fluoroscopic systems. The OEC Brivo Mobile C-Arm X-Ray is designed to provide digital spot-film imaging and fluoroscopic image guidance for all adult and pediatric populations for orientations between patient anatomy and surgical instruments. It is used for general surgical applications and musculoskeletal procedures to visualize implant localization, needle positions for aspirations, and injections/biopsy. The GE OEC Brivo is not for interventional use. The predicate system of the GE OEC Brivo was the GE OEC 9800; however the output capacity is much lower at 2.0 kW. That is why the system is not applicable for interventional procedure. The GE OEC Brivo does not support applications associated with vascular use, but does support the GE OEC 9800 applications in general surgery, orthopedics, general surgical applications and musculoskeletal procedures to visualize implant localizations, needle positions for aspirations, and injections/biopsy. The GE OEC Brivo does not include a 12″ image intensifier option as the GE OEC 9800. The 9″ version is sufficient for non-interventional use and has the same technology as the 9″ option on the OEC 9800.

FAQ

AutoTrak is the function that automatically seeks the subject anatomy anywhere within the imaging field and selects optimal imaging. It automatically adjusts to anatomical size and location.

The GE OEC Brivo was introduced in 2013 and has one of the new GE fluoroscopic systems. The OEC Brivo Mobile C-Arm X-Ray is designed to provide digital spot-film imaging and fluoroscopic image guidance for all adult and pediatric populations for orientations between patient anatomy and surgical instruments. It is used for general surgical applications and musculoskeletal procedures to visualize implant localization, needle positions for aspirations, and injections/biopsy. The GE OEC Brivo is not for interventional use. The predicate system of the GE OEC Brivo was the GE OEC 9800; however the output capacity is much lower at 2.0 kW. That is why the system is not applicable for interventional procedure. The GE OEC Brivo does not support applications associated with vascular use, but does support the GE OEC 9800 applications in general surgery, orthopedics, general surgical applications and musculoskeletal procedures to visualize implant localizations, needle positions for aspirations, and injections/biopsy. The GE OEC Brivo does not include a 12″ image intensifier option as the GE OEC 9800. The 9″ version is sufficient for non-interventional use and has the same technology as the 9″ option on the OEC 9800.

The GE OEC Brivo X-Ray tube is a fixed anode with lower power compared to the rotating anode tube with higher output capacity of the GE OEC 9800. The GE OEC Brivo tube operates on the same general technology and does not require the same capacity as its predicate for effective performance. Because the GE OEC Brivo X-Ray tube requires less kV to perform, the GE OEC Brivo generator is a reduced-capacity version of the GE OEC 9800 generator. Higher ratings are associated with interventional procedures not indicated for the GE OEC Brivo. The GE OEC Brivo is not offered with the same software options as the OEC® 9800. Typical software options for interventional procedures for example, include digital cine, DSA, and Road Mapping.

The GE OEC Brivo offers 9″ image intensifiers, a 2.2 kW stationary anode X-ray tube, a passive tube cooling system (common for low generating power), a relatively larger focal spot, lower tube capacity up to 76,000HU, a half speed cooling rate of 37,000HU/min, and 8 pulses per second available on pulsed fluoroscopic mode. The GE OEC Brivo migrated old user interfaces and features from its predicated model. The control panel on the workstation side is very similar to other OEC series, but there is no control panel integrated on the C-Arm side. The dual mono 19″ LCD monitors are mounted (fixed) on an arm on the workstation side. The GE OEC Brivo integrated DICOM interface (storage, interchange, worklist and print). With customizable patient information, its internal storage is able to save up to 80,000 images. Regarding the external storage interfaces, the GE OEC Brivo is equipped with CD/DVD/USB storage tools and DICOM viewer for image display on PC platforms.

The GE OEC Brivo was developed for simple and short procedures. Due to its simplicity, the GE OEC Brivo provides few imaging modes (Fluoroscopic Mode, Digital Spot Mode, and Radiographic Mode), a single pedal footswitch, and a dual pedal footswitch as an option. To improve general operation and image quality generation, the Automatic Brightness Stabilization (ABS) feature works best for automatic image adjustment and uniform image quality throughout an entire image. Unwanted motion is managed by the Dynamic Recursive Filter; integrating Auto Brightness and Contrast Control helps adjusts image brightness and contrast that might be able to simplify the user’s operation.
