Our vascular surgery team is all smiles as the renovated, state-of- the-art Operating Room is complete. It’s the MOV’s only hybrid endovascular facility with superior imaging capability.


WVU Medicine Camden Clark Medical Center now provides the only hybrid endovascular facility with superior imaging capability in the Mid-Ohio Valley.

CCMC recently purchased a new IGS 540 Innova table that is being utilized by Dr. Dan McGraw, board-certified vascular surgeon.

"This suite offers the sterile environment of the Operating Room with the high quality intervention imaging of a Cath Lab, which is the best of both worlds,” said Dr. McGraw. “This new technology will make it suitable for performing a wide range of minimally invasive procedures at Camden Clark.” 

A product of the General Electric Healthcare Division of General Electric Company, the Innova IGS 540 unites image quality, an optimal panel size and built-in protocols for imaging versatility, making it suitable for interventional radiology, cardiovascular imaging, and a wide range of peripheral procedures.

The Innova IGS 540 combines GE’s exclusive Innova LC Positioner with an ergonomically designed tableside user interface to provide easy access and control of critical features during an exam.

Debbie Thomas, director of perioperative services, said “the OR suite is about 800'  in size and is
more spacious now with the table being placed in an angular fashion in the room.” Thomas went on to add that “the OR Table is fully motorized and features longitudinal and lateral motions even when tilted for effortless, automated and flexible positioning. The OR Table covers and tableside interfaces are specifically designed to protect against entry of liquids required by OR standards.”

The GE Revolution digital flat panel detector can translate the widest possible range of X-ray exposure intensities into digital signals without saturation. Proprietary DRM image processing transforms this information for display without loss of detail over a wide range of anatomical densities. Additionally, organs in motion typically generate image blurring, but thanks to this high contrast fluoroscopy technology, GE overcame this challenge in delivering an efficient dose with significantly reduced blurring of images. With excellent performance in low-dose fluoroscopy as well as high-dose exposures, the Innova IGS 540 advances GE’s leadership in flat-panel imaging and as taken technology to a new level with the Innova detector design.
