The future of surgery
A single surgical workspace that combines imaging equipment with a multifunctional surgical table. It allows clinicians to diagnose and treat in a single location, reducing risk and delays, improving patient safety, and ultimately reducing costs. The surgical table top not only meets the needs of multiple surgical disciplines but also balances the need for panning when used for advanced imaging.

Tzu Chi Hospital, Hualien, Taiwan
Tzu Chi Hospital in Hualien, Taiwan, has always focused on the healthcare needs of lower-income patients. It was the first hospital established by the Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation support underserved communities. Recently, The Tzu Chi network has invested in updating four of its hospitals across Taiwan to include four hybrid ORs to deliver better patient care.
Tzu Chi Hualien was part of a partnership between GE Healthcare and Getinge to integrate cutting-edge imaging technology with Getinge infrastructure. Getinge provided project planning and a variety of equipment, including tables, lighting, and the modular wall systems that streamlined the remodeling process.
Cooperation with leading imaging providers
We are proud to partner with all of the leading imaging companies, each a pioneer in their own respect. Together, we have taken the Hybrid operating theatre to new heights by setting advanced therapy standards.
We have different solutions for different disciplines, supporting the idea of an optimized and comfortable workflow in the hospital. For example, we support the transfer from emergency or helicopter to radiology or the OR, as well as the workflow within the OR environment in combination with angiography, CT and MR.
Canon Medical Systems
As a part of the decade long partnership with Getinge, Canon Medical Systems supplies the Alphenix Hybrid angiography systems and sliding CT-solutions. The Maquet Magnus operating table is integrated with these angiography systems, perfectly meeting the requirements of hybrid procedures.
Getinge and GE Healthcare have jointly developed a highly flexible Hybrid OR solution that combines GE’s Discovery IGS 7 OR and Allia IGS 7 OR and MRI solutions with Getinge’s versatile Maquet Magnus OR table system.
The combined solution brings both intuitive 3D fusion image guidance and complete workspace freedom to the Hybrid OR.
The Maquet Magnus operating table top is integrated with various Philips single plane and biplane angiography systems, including the new Azurion 7 C20 with FlexArm, as well as MRI solutions. Thanks to the full integration between the two systems, the Maquet Magnus table can be operated via the table controls of the Philips imaging system.
The Getinge and Siemens collaboration ensures full integration between the Maquet Magnus operating table and ARTIS pheno, Artis Q ceiling, Artis Q biplane, MRI and sliding-gantry CT solutions as well as Nexaris Therapy Suites (multi-modality).
One room, multiple uses – the possibilities are endless
Once limited to cardiovascular procedures in the cath lab, image-guided surgery has expanded to comprise nearly all surgical disciplines, including cardiovascular, neurosurgery, oncology, orthopedic urology, and traumatology procedures – all of which benefit from intraoperative imaging.
Nowadays, the Hybrid OR supports different procedures.
Hybrid ORs – surpassing today’s expectations
As a pioneer in the design and installation of Hybrid operating rooms, Getinge goes well beyond the installation of Hybrid ORs or multi-modality suites. Our comprehensive approach places the patient and workflow optimization at the center. In order to eliminate patient repositioning during intra-hospital transport while enabling intra-operative access to multiple imaging modalities, Getinge joined forces with Siemens Healthineers to develop the PILOT Patient Transfer System.
Suitable for hospitals of all sizes.
The Hybrid OR is not simply a resource for large, urban medical centers. Even smaller hospitals can benefit from the increased efficiency and improved clinical outcomes that image-guided surgeries can deliver. Investments for fluoroscopy, CT and MR are no longer the exclusive investment of the radiology department. These kind of diagnostic tools can be easily installed in the OR for surgical patients, or walk-in patients in a sterile area.
Bringing a concept to reality
One of the most challenging aspects of implementing a Hybrid OR solution is creating an overall functioning concept that coordinates and integrates a large amount of complex medical equipment. When you choose Getinge equipment, you get more than just state-of-the-art technology. We are your one-stop solution provider, assisting you with every aspect of your Hybrid OR: from initial need assessment to project management, from flexible room design to delivering and installing the equipment.
