CHICAGO — February 26, 2024 —GE HealthCare (Nasdaq: GEHC), a leading global medical technology, pharmaceutical diagnostics, and digital solutions innovator, today announced that New Jersey-based Virtua Health has installed the innovative Omni Legend digital PET/CT– the first Omni Legend PET/CT system in New Jersey– and Revolution Apex platform – a CT system capable of 1-beat cardiac imaging – to add advanced capabilities to their cardiology facility in Moorestown, New Jersey. Not-for-profit Virtua Health is the largest health system in southern New Jersey and seeks to leverage this innovative technology to advance heart imaging in the Greater Philadelphia area.

With cardiovascular disease as the leading cause of death globally, the prevalence of cardiovascular disease doubling since 1990, and a predicted increase in prevalence as the population ages, it is crucial to take a solutions-oriented approach to wellness, prevention, and early detection in cardiovascular health.

“The highest quality of cardiovascular imaging matters because it helps us more accurately diagnose a patient’s heart condition,” says Virtua cardiologist Mark Finch, MD, FACC. “From there, we can establish the best possible care pathway, whether that’s medication, lifestyle modification, or medical intervention. The more information we’re able to analyze, the better our patient outcomes can become. That’s why we’re excited to add these innovative GE HealthCare systems to our facility and help improve quality of life for those we care for.”

Cardiology care is complex, and the solutions built to address cardiovascular disease are evolving rapidly. That’s why GE HealthCare provides systems that help to tell the story of the heart. The Omni Legend PET/CT and the Revolution Apex CT both can help leverage research, data, and the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) to drive care pathway optimization and help deliver better patient care, notably in the detection and diagnosis phase which is an important step in informing treatment plans

“GE HealthCare is devoted to providing cardiology solutions that support the continuum of care and personalize treatment around the world and certainly at outpatient facilities like Virtua Cardiology,” said Scott Stoddard, New York and Philadelphia Market Vice President at GE HealthCare. “The new Omni Legend PET/CT and Revolution Apex platform systems at Virtua represent meaningful improvements in cardiac imaging that can power clinical efficiencies and better patient outcomes.”
