AIR Recon DL is GE Healthcare’s pioneering deep-learning based technology that provides for clinical efficiency by enabling shorter scan times with higher resolution in MRI clinical procedures.
Chicago, US — November 30, 2022 - GE Healthcare announced today that it was recognized in the annual ‘Best of What’s New’ awards by Popular Science Magazine. The award highlights GE Healthcare’s AIR Recon DL technology and the benefits it brings to the healthcare industry.
“We are honored to receive this award,” said Jie Xue, President and CEO, Magnetic Resonance at GE Healthcare. “AIR Recon DL was developed with the customer and patient in mind. We’re proud that we made AI part of the radiologists and technologists day-to-day imaging operations, and also enhanced the patient experience while being scanned. AIR Recon DL has benefited nearly 5.5 million patients around the world, and feedback from clinical users has been overwhelmingly positive.[i]”

GE Healthcare recently announced US FDA 510(k) clearance of its AIR Recon DL 3D and motion-insensitive PROPELLER imaging sequences. 3D imaging allows for more clinical efficiency, allowing radiologists to eliminate the need for multiple 2D acquisitions - potentially leading to faster diagnosis. Additionally, AIR Recon DL is now compatible with PROPELLER, a motion-insensitive imaging sequence particularly important for anatomies susceptible to motion such as pediatric and neurodegenerative patients, who have difficulty remaining physically still for the duration of an MRI scan. As a result, physicians can get sharper, more accurate images without the need for repeat scans – potentially translating to faster patient throughput, improved scheduling, shorter exam time, and faster diagnosis, helping to create an all-round better patient experience.
