Rediscover space and movement

The Discovery* IGS 740 angiography system brings both extremely high-quality imaging and complete workspace freedom to the hybrid operating room.

Its unique mobile platform brings all the power of a fixed imaging system to the table, yet it can be moved aside, so multi-disciplinary teams can complete procedures comfortably, with unobstructed access to patients.

High-end fluoroscopy image guidance, advanced applications, 3D image fusion – it all comes on a sophisticated gantry that travels on predefined paths with laser-guided precision.

With an exceptionally large detector see large anatomies in one view to accommodate a wide range of endovascular, hybrid and open surgical procedures, free of interference from fixed floor or ceiling system structures.

With the Discovery IGS 740:

  • Rethink your possibilities with predictable motion and patient access
  • Reinvent the way you work with high-precision imaging
  • Re-evaluate your options with flexible room layouts


Rethink your possibilities.

With the Discovery* IGS 740 gantry, nothing on the floor or ceiling obstructs your work or limits your mobility – your freedom is nearly absolute. An untethered, laser-guided gantry carries the imaging C-arm. You can move it to the table to image any part of the anatomy, then power it back, out of the way, to precise pre-chosen positions.

Movable gantry puts clinicians in control.

The Discovery IGS 740 provides full flexibility in your clinical space. Controls available at tableside and at the back of the gantry let you maneuver the system easily and conveniently. When in position for imaging, the gantry swivels around the table on a defined path, with precise laser guidance. Combined gantry and table movement enables you to stop and image at any point for coverage from head to toe.

One-touch back-in/back-out means fully flexible procedures.

With the Discovery IGS 740, you can truly have it both ways: Move the gantry to the table for imaging, move it aside when not needed – and all at the touch of a button. From up to nine positions at the table, you can back the gantry out to up to eleven predefined locations1. Back-out distances are customizable to suit different room sizes.

Teams work better with nothing in their way.

The Discovery IGS 740 gives physicians, nurses, anesthesiologists and technologists ample space to work together effectively. Clinicians can position on either side of the patient according to preference. With the offset C-arm, the anesthesiologist can work comfortably at the patient’s head.

Customized parking provides the maximum freedom.

When it’s not needed for imaging, you can move the gantry aside completely, allowing complete patient access at the table and enabling easy room cleaning. You can pre-configure two parking spaces to suit your room size and shape.

Reinvent the way you work.

The Discovery IGS 740 brings outstanding imaging technology, with the added flexibility of a mobile C-arm. Enjoy the power of fluoroscopy for precise, real-time image guidance, 3D rotational angiography with CT-like imaging, fusion of prior 3D images from multiple modalities, plus more than 20 advanced applications to help you plan, guide and assess your procedures.

Discovery IGS 730

An exceptionally large detector

With its broad 41 x 41 cm (16.1 in) digital detector, the Discovery IGS 740 system boasts one of the largest fields of view for interventional imaging. Moreover, we designed the image chain to be dose-efficient while providing images rich with details. The 41 x 41 cm (12.2 in.) detector is the heart of a proven image chain entirely engineered and built by GE and delivers one of the industry’s highest levels of DQE, the accepted measure of X-ray detector dose efficiency.

Right dose by design

Discovery IGS 730

We never forget that you have a choice to make. The Discovery IGS 740 lets you choose the image quality you want while you strive for the lowest achievable dose. It starts with built-in dose efficiency. For example, with a longer source-to-body distance, the Discovery IGS 740 allows the X-ray beam to be more dispersed when it reaches the patient, enabling you to reduce skin radiation dose by as much as 10 to 15 percent2. Dose personalization, controllable from tableside, lets you choose your preferred protocols for the tasks you do every day, helping you provide personalized care. With our dose reporting tools, you can assess your current practices and learn how you can improve dose management.

A wide-bore C-arm expands your options

The Discovery IGS 740 has a maximum of 129 cm (50 in.) space between the tube and detector, as well as an offset C-arm. This combination greatly enhances flexibility. Now you can:

  • Perform rotational angiography with reduced interference from anesthesia tubing or monitor cables.
  • Move the table without obstruction for off-center 3D acquisitions to image the borders of the liver or the skin line.
  • Easily accommodate large patients.

Re-evaluate your options.

Use precious space well with flexible room designs. Build your room into a new fully functional hybrid OR, re-configure a small room, or re-purpose an existing room. You can install the Discovery IGS 740 in rooms as small as 35 square meters (377 square feet)3. You’ll have the potential to increase the procedure mix in your OR with exceptional equipment for minimally invasive procedures.

Discovery IGS 730

Suspension-free design removes a source of contamination.

The mobile gantry leaves the room ceiling suspension-free, helping prevent contamination from airborne agents. It allows laminar flow above the surgical field even when in position for imaging, helping to meet the criteria for ISO 5 classification5.

Sterile draping adds protection.

Discovery IGS 730

The detector and tube can be easily fitted with sterile covers4 specially designed not to interfere with any gantry or detector motion. Sterile drapes attach quickly and easily inside the C-arm using four simple side-mounted clasps.

OR table design adds more flexibility

Discovery IGS 730

For hybrid, endovascular and open procedures, the GE operating room table provides significant advantages. The long tabletop (333 cm) accommodates catheters as long as 3 m and provides added space for placing sterile items. With up to 170 cm of longitudinal table travel, you can cover up to 189 cm of anatomy with table panning only. A free-floating tabletop with power-assisted motion facilitates panning for heavy patients. Table rails make it easy to attach accessories such as surgical retractors or anesthesia screen holder.

Clinical applications

Make advanced applications part of your everyday routine.

Available right at the tableside, easy-to-use GE advanced applications help you plan, guide, and assess complex procedures with confidence on a routine, everyday basis.

Easy access to CT-like images right in the vascular lab means you may not need to transfer patients to a CT exam room.


Complex endovascular procedures:

Endovascular aneurysm repairs can be delicate when dealing with complex anatomies. (T)EVAR Assist solutions let you plan, guide and assess challenging procedures with confidence.


Plan with Volume Viewer Interventional and VesselIQ* Xpress, the Advantage Workstation CT vascular analysis software that delivers zero-click bone removal and tracking of the aorta, as well as key anatomy measurements


Guide your catheters with Innova Vision, which overlays 3D datasets from CT, MR or 3D rotational images on live fluoroscopic images in a single click. Either Innova 3D or pre-operative CTA images can be overlaid on top of the fluoroscopic image. Pre-operative imaging can be overlaid without acquiring an intra-operative 3D image.


Assess the endograft deployment with Innova 3D imaging, and follow up using semi-automatic sizing of the thrombus and a compare mode.
