GE Launches New Ultrasound Systems for Women’s Health at ACOG 2009

May 4, 2009 ? GE Healthcare launched the Voluson E6 and LOGIQ P3, two new ultrasound systems for the women’s health market, at the 57th Annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), held May 4-6, in Chicago at GE Healthcare’s booth #1315.

The Voluson E6 is the entry-level system to the advanced E-Series Voluson platform, and is designed specifically for obstetric and gynecological clinical applications. Designed for the everyday user, Voluson E6 features new attributes to help clinicians achieve higher levels of image quality and efficiency. Innovations in automation for the fetal heart, a scan assistant for quality assurance and improved workflow, and new transducer technology some key features in this product introduction.

The LOGIQ P3 is an economical, compact console ultrasound system engineered to deliver high performance that can help clinicians deliver advanced imaging to OB/GYN practices. GE Healthcare has migrated robust features sets as CrossXBeam from more advanced LOGIQ systems, which enables the LOGIQ P3 to provide excellent performance. The LOGIQ P3 feature set is well-suited for OB applications and the system is compatible with the most frequently used LOGIQ obstetric transducers. Its lightweight and ergonomic design is small enough to easily maneuver to exam rooms and its robust workflow capabilities also help clinicians meet emerging digital information requirements for healthcare providers.

GE ultrasound system upgrades include the Voluson E8, which now includes offers a Dynamic Rendering Engine, designed to provide next-generation 3D rendering. The harmonization between the Voluson platform, Dynamic Rendering Engine and advanced transducers aims to help clinicians achieve high image quality and seamless operation

Enhancements to the LOGIQ P5 and LOGIQ P6 include improved image quality, workflow and sonographer comfort. Continuing the tradition of migrating advanced feature sets throughout the GE ultrasound portfolio, both systems now benefit from Voluson image optimization algorithms that provide improved 3D image quality. Real-time 4D has also been optimized to an improved performance level. Other improvements include: new transducers that help provide improved image quality and patient comfort; a new hard drive for increased speed; expanded reporting packages; and an enhanced 17-inch monitor featuring new optical filters is said to help improve contrast resolution and reduce glare.
