Ultrasound Acquires more Clinical Information in Fewer Steps


May 9, 2007

The Vivid 7 Dimension builds on GE’s imaging platform, acquiring more clinical information in fewer steps. GE’s transducer technology allows the use of only one probe to acquire multiple planes of images at the same time, and from the same heartbeat, without changing probe positions.

This single transducer provides multiple imaging capabilities, such as Coded Octave Harmonics, color Doppler, Tissue Velocity Imaging, PW and CW Doppler – plus multidimensional and 4-D imaging.

GE’s real-time 4-D imaging and real-time full volume imaging enable the user to acquire artifact-free depictions of the entire heart. Real-time 4-D color Doppler and real-time full volume color Doppler imaging offers instant display of 4-D color for improved visualization, including the ability to quantify regurgitant lesions.

One transducer can be used to perform a complete exam, including stress and contrast imaging, which can significantly reduce exam time and streamline workflow.
