GE to demonstrate at RSNA 2014 ultrasound hardware and software.

GE will demonstrate at RSNA 2014 a versatile portfolio of ultrasound hardware and software.

The vScan with Dual Probe is the first of its kind 2-in-1 probe, GE said, which offers health care providers many uses for pocket ultrasound. It houses two transducers in a single probe which should allow clinicians to see shallow and deep views of the body without changing probes.

Volusion E10 with HDlive technology is GE’s newest system and features a curved matrix electronic 4D probe designed specifically for OB/GYN, the world’s first, according to GE. The system provides 2D and 3D/4D images with increased penetration, GE said.

Invenia ABUS has an acquisition process that uses 3D ultrasound technology to image women with dense breast tissue in approximately 15 minutes with features that conform to a woman’s anatomy, GE said.

Shear Wave elastography is a new tool for the LOGIQ E9 with XDclear Shear Wave elastography and offers an advanced level of diagnostic information to help evaluate tissue stiffness, GE said. The LOGIQ E9 ultrasound system uses a focused burst of acoustic energy from the transducer to generate Shear Waves that produce quantitative measurements and a color coded elastogram. These quantifiable exams provide enhanced benefits as compared with traditional strain elastography, GE said.

Vivid E9 with XDclear was built from the Vivid E9 platform and designed to enhance image quality in 2D, 4D, color, and Doppler. The image clarity improvements can be especially helpful for patients that have been difficult to scan in the past, like obese patients, GE said.

Venue 50 is a portable ultrasound that delivers crisp images quickly with the simplicity of a tablet, GE said. The touch user interface offers easy gel-and-go scanning and is designed for speed, GE said.
