BOSTON, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Whale Imaging, Inc., leading designer and manufacturer of the innovative G-Arm® and Sigma Series ultrasound medical imaging systems, is proud to announce FDA 510(k) clearance of the G-Arm B6 Duo. The B6 Duo is the next generation of the G-Arm with major improvements including axial tilt and greater table access.
"We're thrilled to be launching this sooner than our original intended date," said Laurence Heron, SVP of Sales and Marketing at Whale. "We feel that getting the B6 Duo into our customer's OR will really revolutionize surgical imaging for orthopedic, spine and neuro surgeons as well as pain practitioners."
The Whale Imaging R&D team's mission was to help the user improve accuracy while reducing time, infection and radiation. Engineers at Whale made the B6 Duo compatible with all surgical tables, and added many new features including axial tilt. Whale's unique ability to fire two x-ray beams asynchronously provides the customer with bi-lateral video and images, giving the user a more comprehensive picture than a traditional C-arm.
G-Arm utilizes this X-Beam technology, as well as iC-Clear algorithms to provide the best image possible, using the smallest dose of radiation.
"Within a few years, we expect the B6 Duo to be a common fixture in orthopedics and spine departments across the US," says Phil Posa, VP of the G-Arm Division. "It has many advantages over C-Arms for various procedures, so why add another C-Arm to your inventory when a G-Arm can accomplish so much more?"
The G-Arm B6 Duo is now available for sale from Whale Imaging, and is FDA 501(k) approved. Interested parties are asked to send an inquiry to [email protected].
