Discovery IGS 740 for Interventional Radiology and Oncology

Free yourself from the rails.

Free yourself from the constraints of fixed ceiling-mounted systems' rails with the Discovery IGS 740 mobile angiography system. The untethered Discovery IGS 740 offers amazing siting and room design flexibility. Practice with exceptional comfort and control with Discovery's rail-free design and flexible wide bore C-arm positioning. And its ample detector covers large anatomies in both 2D and 3D.

With the Discovery IGS 740:

  • Put yourself at the center of your procedures with liberating rail-free design
  • Design your room with amazing flexibility
  • See large anatomies in one view with an exceptionally large detector
  • Perform fast and easy 3D acquisitions with a wide bore


Put yourself at the center of your procedures.

With nothing in your way, you can image the anatomy of interest easily, position your monitors freely,
and access your patients completely from the left or right side on the Discovery IGS 740.

 Discovery IGS 740 liberating rail-free design

Liberating rail-free design

The Discovery IGS 740's swiveling wheeled gantry moves freely on the floor, not on the ceiling, eliminating overhead rails. So you can place your monitors exactly where you need them for comfortable viewing without straining.

Discovery IGS 740 ample wide-bore C-arm

Large wide-bore C-arm

The Discovery IGS 740 has a wide bore C-arm. The combination of this wide bore and the large 41 x 41 cm detector enables to image patient in 3D at any point of the anatomy without collision even for large patients with BMI up to 40. Thanks to its wide bore, Discovery IGS 740 allows 3D imaging for at least 95% of the America's adult population and potentially more than 95% of the world's adult population.

Discovery IGS 740 arm positions

Dedicated arm imaging positions1

Perform procedures such as left arm fistulograms comfortably with the Discovery IGS 740's dedicated arm imaging positions.

See large anatomies in one view.

Cover large anatomies such as the liver or both legs simultaneously with fewer runs than smaller
detectors, for efficient use of contrast and dose.

 Discovery IGS 740 an exceptionally large detector

An exceptionally large detector

With its broad 41 x 41 cm (16.1 in) digital detector, the Discovery IGS 740 system boasts one of the largest fields of view for interventional imaging. Moreover, the GE-proprietary digital detector delivers one of the industry's highest levels of DQE, the accepted measure of X-ray detector dose efficiency.

Discovery IGS 740 extended coverage in 2D

Extended coverage in 2D

With InnovaBreeze1*, take full advantage of the Discovery IGS 740's very large field-of-view and follow the contrast bolus in both legs in real time using variable panning speed control.

Discovery IGS 740 large organs in 3D

Large organs in 3D

Combine the wide-bore C-arm and the 41 x 41 cm (16.1 in) digital detector, and see large organs like the liver in 3D. Then use FlightPlan for Liver1 to help you identify tumor-feeding vessels in a few clicks and be selective during your liver embolization.

Design your room with amazing flexibility.

By eliminating the rails of ceiling-mounted systems, the Discovery IGS 740 frees up your ceiling
entirely for more flexibility in designing your room.

Discovery IGS 740 drawing the ideal room

Drawing the ideal room

With no rails on the ceiling blocking where to position ceiling-mounted ancillaries, the Discovery IGS 740 gives you flexibility to draw the location of your monitors, lights, and rad-shields where you need them to be. And with two customizable parking positions, the Discovery IGS 740 adapts to suit your room size and shape.

No reinforced ceiling structure needed

With the mobile Discovery IGS 740 system, there's no need for long and complex
infrastructure improvements to reinforce your room's ceiling structure.

 Discovery IGS 740 precious space

Siting in precious space

Whether you're building a new room, re-purposing an existing room, or re-configuring a small room, the Discovery IGS 740 lets you use precious space efficiently. Fit the Discovery IGS 740 in rooms as small as just 35 square meters (377 square feet), for a wider choice of siting options in situations where space is at a premium.


Power up your clinical decision making

The interventional field is growing with ever-expanding capabilities and migration to less invasive, safer and more cost-efficient procedures. With the new generation of GE's advanced interventional imaging software solutions, ASSIST, you can expand your clinical versatility and successfully plan, guide and assess increasingly sophisticated procedures with greater precision and dose efficiency.


Endovascular aneurysm repairs can be delicate when dealing with complex anatomies. With EVAR ASSIST 28, 3D fusion imaging is very accessible.
