Whale Imaging Launches New G-Arm Duo Imaging System

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].

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
