GE Healthcare has introduced its next-generation CT colonography technology, AdvantageCTC, at the Fifth International Symposium on Virtual Colonoscopy, Oct. 28 - 29, in Boston.

The enhanced software gives users a 360-degree dissection view of the colon as an alternative to the standard 2D or 3D reading approach. GE compared the new feature to much like reading a scroll, 360-dissection virtually un-rolls the colon so that the entire internal colon wall is displayed for the physician.

In addition, AdvantageCTC displays the anatomy of the colon acquired in the supine and prone positions in multiple layouts displayed simultaneously, in a synchronized, orientated, and correlated fashion, said GE.
