GE Healthcare Launches Vivid iq Portable Compact Cardiovascular Ultrasound System

High-performance system lets users bring high-quality imaging and high-end functionality anywhere in the hospital

GE Healthcare, Vivid iq portable cardiovascular ultrasound, RSNA 2016, launch

September 22, 2016 — GE Healthcare announced the global commercial launch of its new generation of high-end portable compact cardiovascular ultrasound, the Vivid iq, at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress in Rome in August.

A smaller sized compact weighing just 4.5 kg, the Vivid iq matches high image quality with high-end functionality, allowing clinicians to diagnose in more settings. From the cath lab and the operating room (OR) to the emergency room (ER) or even a tented exam room in a remote location, this ultra-portable diagnostic ultrasound system delivers premier cardiac care without compromises, according to the company. 

The Vivid iq was developed alongside clinicians and healthcare providers around the world. Ferran Rosés Noguer, M.D., head of the Pediatric Cardiology Department at Vall d’Hebron University Hospital in Barcelona, said: “Vivid iq is a huge step forward in terms of image quality and innovative design. It is extremely user-friendly, truly portable, with a fantastic interface and a great design that is really futuristic and elegant at the same time.”

With today’s increasing patient volumes, the system helps adapt to new challenges with the combination of power and portability.

  • Portable: 10 percent lighter and thinner than the Vivid q with up to one-hour battery and a new transportable cart;
  • Reliable: rugged, cleanable design built for tough conditions
  • Easy to use: intuitive touchscreen and fewer keystrokes; and
  • Advanced and easy to use: 4-D transesophageal echo (TEE) and other powerful capabilities.
