Power. Speed. Agility.

The Definium 5000 is a compact and versatile digital radiography system. It’s well-suited for the demands of high-volume imaging, especially in treatment centers where space is at a premium, such as orthopedic and sports medicine facilities, physician offices, satellite offices and stand-alone imaging centers. It’s an affordable digital solution in a compact system.


  • Digital is faster and more efficient than film or CR cassettes.
  • Digital reduces total exam time and radiologist wait time for processed images compared to film or CR cassettes.
  • Digital allows you to archive images more quickly and easily compared to film or CR cassettes.

The Definium 5000 offers:   

Compact Performance:
The Definium* 5000 maximizes its compact size to provide digital image quality at an efficient dose. The rotating U-arm combines with automated features to help enhance productivity in a powerful, affordable X-ray imaging system.

Digital Efficiency:
The Definium 5000 includes automated tools to help enhance productivity, workflow and image consistency. It is based on GE’s innovative digital platform, giving you advanced technology in an easy-to-use system.

Simple Configuration:
With its compact, floor-mounted, U-arm design, the Definium 5000 fits into smaller rooms without the need of ceiling support structures, helping to reduce equipment and building costs associated with ceiling support structures. And it can be installed fast – potentially helping to further reduce expenditures.

Flat-Panel Detector:
GE’s exclusive CesiumIodide single-piece digital detector eliminates fused edges with dead pixel space, delivering excellent image quality with dose efficiency.

Customized Flexibility:
The Definium 5000’s intuitive touch screen and common user interface allows for easy and rapid command execution.

Optional Auto Image Paste:
The use of Auto Image Paste software enables multiple exposures to be combined into a single image for long bone and scoliosis studies.


Advanced features include:


  • Amorphous silicon non-tiled digital detector with cesium iodide scintillator
  • Patient-side collimator and technique controls with digital display (e.g. mA, kVp, mAs)
  • Patient-side automated positioning selection
  • Patient-side selection of pre-programmed U-arm positions
  • High DQE for excellent image quality and dose efficiency
  • Automated vertical and longitudinal tube/detector alignment of the U-arm
  • Fast preview image (QC)
  • Multi-resolution image processing capability
  • DICOM 3.0 and IHE-compliant communication
  • Post-acquisition reprocessing for multiple views from a single exposure
  • Patient edit for category, exam and/or view


The Definium 5000 digital radiographic imaging system is designed as a compact, digital imaging system for use in hospital emergency departments, orthopedic centers, and to support most general radiology applications. It provides excellent image quality, image manipulation and dose reporting. These features help make the system reliable and easy to use while providing high-quality radiographic images in a digital environment.   

The system configuration includes a choice of tables, a floor column stand with rotating U-arm; GE’s patented digital detector, which captures radiographic images in digital form; and an x-ray generator/power unit. An acquisition and review workstation for image post-processing, short-term storage, and quick in-room viewing of images is included. Images may be transferred manually or automatically via a DICOM network for printing, long-term storage or archive, and detailed review.
