GE Medical Systems (GEMS) has launched its Logiq 700 Expert Series ultrasound system which, the company claims, can diagnose risk factors that contribute to stroke. After $100 million in R&D expenditure the company claims that the new machine can "simultaneously display blood flow and tissue at up to three times better image resolution and four times faster than current systems". The FDA-approved Logiq 700 relies on GEMS' proprietary B-Flow technology to identify the walls of the carotid and plaque that may be about to dislodge itself.
