GE Launches New Laptop-Sized Ultrasound for OB/GYN

MAY 8, 2007 - GE Healthcare launched the Voluson e system, a compact ultrasound system specifically designed for uses in labor and delivery, gynecological exams and studies and assisted reproductive medicine, at the 55th Annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) May 7-9 in San Diego.
The portability of this approximately 11-pound system is said to provide high-quality imaging at the patient bedside and for community clinics, where space constraints are possible. This new compact system, on the heels of last year’s launch of the Voluson i, also reportedly allows clinicians to make real-time diagnoses, particularly for high-risk patients.
According to Omar Ishrak, president and CEO of GE Healthcare’s Clinical Systems business, there is a need for more specialized, high-quality point of care systems to meet the growing demands for on-the-spot diagnosis. “The Voluson e and Voluson i address one of the biggest challenges OB/GYN physicians face in caring for their high-risk patients – access to complete, real-time information that allows them to make clinical decisions at the patient’s bedside with confidence,” Ishrak said.
GE will also debut at ACOG the Voluson i Breakthrough 2007 with features to help improve patient care, such as assessing the fetal heart. Migrating advanced technologies across the Voluson product line is the underpinning of this annual GE Breakthrough release. Each “i” product is designed to bring specialized, console-quality imaging performance and portability to traditional applications. GE’s Compact Series “e” products focus on expanding ultrasound’s reach to new clinical areas.
The LOGIQ P5, introduced in 2006, has never been seen before at ACOG. The LOGIQ P5 is part of the radiology line of LOGIQ ultrasound systems designed to provide versatility to clinics. From fibroid and cystic structure visualization, to routine fetal measurements and advanced applications, this system helps image patients for a clinic’s women’s healthcare specialty. GE’s TruScan architecture provides advanced diagnostic tools to provide better penetration and contrast resolution. Features such as Phase Inversion Harmonics help deliver clear border definition for improved visualization of the endometrial lining and clearer tumor assessments.
