Introducing MAVRIC SL

How We Address a Growing Clinical Need Introducing MAVRIC SL, an Exclusive Imaging Technology for Joint Replacements and Implanted Devices As the population continues to age, total joint replacement procedures are GE Healthcare products touch millions of patients increasingly common: from around the world |2.9. at every age. MILLION Joint replacements take place worldwide each year MILLION Americans receive a hip or knee replacement each year By 2030 in the U.S. the demand for primary total hip arthroplasties is estimated to grow by 174%. 572,000 to 3.48. m ...The demand for primary total knee to MILLION arthroplasties is projected to grow by 673%l Infection Dislocation Joint replacement surgery is successful in more than 9 out of 10 people, but complications remain: Nerve and blood vessel injury Blood clots In some cases, biopsy or exploratory surgery is required. By 2030, in the U.S. alone: 200% Knee revisions are expected to increase seven fold Hip revisions are 700% expected to more than double MAVRIC SL an innovation in patient care to better understand pain and poor function in joint replacements for both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients. Captures multiple images at different frequency offsets and combines them Helps reduce artifacts caused by the presence of metal* Applies a novel de-blurring algorithm that further enhances the resolution within the combined image The composite image shows reduced signal void and distortion *MAVRIC SL is indicated for use in scanning MR Conditional implants. As a result, MAVRIC SL provides accurate imaging, helping physicians to better diagnose patients before deciding on a course of treatment and may reduce the need for exploratory surgery. GE Healthcare continues to be committed to humanizing MRI by focusing on the needs of the patient, technologist and clinician.
