GE Shows New OB/GYN Applications in Ultrasound

August 26, 2008 - GE Healthcare is showcasing new enhancements to its Voluson compact ultrasound imaging platforms together with its consoles designed to enable early diagnosis and clinical confidence for women’s healthcare at the 18th World Congress of the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) Aug. 24-28 in Chicago.

The latest technology introduced at ISUOG is SonoVCADlabor, which measures fetal head direction, rotation and progression in the second stage of labor. Available on the Voluson i compact ultrasound product, SonoVCADlabor is for labor and delivery wards dealing with high-risk pregnancies, and teaching hospitals where doctors, nurses or midwives need additional clinical information. The technology helps pave the way for the future of advanced volume ultrasound and automation, enabling GE to continue its leadership role in consistently delivering clinically relevant technologies that transform healthcare.

Another new feature is the SonoVCADheart, technology engineered to streamline the acquisition of volumetric images of the fetal heart. This technology displays all of the 2D planes, which complies with the ISUOG, AIUM et al recommended standard screening exam of the fetal heart.
Also, new is SonoAVCfollicle, a solution that reportedly delivers an efficient method of calculating the number and volume of ovarian follicles. This is a critical diagnostic step in assisted reproductive medicine because each fluid-filled follicle contains hormone producing cells and a maturing ovum (egg).
