Cardiac ultrasound is an ultrasound of heart also known as Echocardigram. It helps in diagnosis of various heart related problems as it shows size, shape and motion of the heart. It also shows blood flow through heart and blood vessels using various methods as contrast echocardiogram, stress echo, TEE (transesophageal echocardiogram) and doppler ultrasound.
Here we will see various cardiovascular ultrasound machines from GE. GE has dedicated its Vivid series with many cardiac ultrasound machines from economy to premium range.
GE Vivid S60 and Vivid S70 -Mid range cardiac ultrasound machines
GE offers various cart based cardiovascular models as Vivid S60 and vivid S70. Refurbished Vivid S60 is 2D ultrasound machine while Vivid S70 is with 3D/4D imaging technology. This makes S60 a little less expensive version of S70. These ultrasound machines have software-based cSound beam former image reconstruction, advanced quantification tools, including the new AFI Stress for LV quantification in a stress echo whereas used GE Vivid S70 has an additional Triplex imaging for spectral, color, and 2D simultaneous imaging and TEE echo.
GE Vivid E9 Ultrasound Machine – High performance range
Another cardiac ultrasound machine is GE Vivid E9. It is featured with large field-of-view that’s ideal for capturing the entire heart with high frame rates and comprehensive diagnostic information. 4D technology features of refurbished GE Vivid E9 includes 4D LV Mass, 4D Auto LVQ, 4D Views with “one-touch” options and 4D strain.
GE Vivid E9 XDClear allows a wide range of transducers for cardiac, vascular, obstetric, gynecologic, urological, abdominal, pediatric, neonatal, fetal heart, , transcranial and small parts application.
A refurbished GE Vivid E9 is really a good option for someone looking to buy a high performance cardiovascular ultrasound machine with 4D imaging technology.
GE Vivid T8 is a hybrid model introduced with combined features of GE vivid ultrasound machines and GE LogiQ series making it useful for both cardiac and shared services.
Cardiac features of refurbished GE Vivid T8 are like Smart stress, AutoEF, tissue velocity imaging, tissue tracking whereas logiq features are AutoIMT, B-Flow, virtual convex, LogiqView and blood flow imaging make it useful for shared services. In general logiq series don’t provide great cardiac images and vivid series don’t provide high quality in shared services. Whereas GE Vivid T8 brings both together at very economical price.
GE Vivid i & LogiQ e – Portable 2D Cardiovascular Ultrasound
GE Vivid i is a portable laptop size 2D ultrasound machine with high image quality having abilities of performing stress echo, monitoring regional anesthesia and carotid evaluation.
Features of Vivid I includes crossXBeam, SRI speckle reduction imaging, TEE imaging, tissue harmonic imaging and deep penetration.
The Vivid i provides quantitative analysis with features as tissue velocity imaging, tissue tracking, EchoPAC analysis making it applicable for cardiac use. It is compatible with a range of cardiac and linear transducers.
LogiQ series of GE also has a cardiac portable ultrasound machine available in refurbished market. It is GE logiQ e. GE LogiQ e comes with features as rendered panoramic images up to 60cm, TruScan architecture, split-screen that shows two, side-by-side images for live scanning, Power Doppler Imaging (PDI), SmartScan and ComfortScan technologies.
GE LogiQ e is a shared service 2D portable machine with capabilities of stress echo at a very affordable price range.
PrimedeQ has a wide range of cardiac ultrasound machines. We offer portable to cart based models from various brands like GE, BPL, Mindray, Siemens, Aloka, Hitachi, Sonosite and many others. In addition, PrimedeQ offers both new and used / refurbished ultrasound scanners and their related parts.
