Logiq e From GE Healthcare Simplifies Needle Guided Procedures, Now Available in U.S.

September 3, 2014 — GE Healthcare announced commercial availability in the United States for its new Logiq e ultrasound system. The new system features a programmable probe with buttons on it that allow for simple, fast and precise use of portable ultrasound at the point of care. The new transducer combined with enhanced imaging capabilities allows for premium imaging capabilities in a compact format for patients in a wide variety of settings.

The Logiq e was reengineered to provide premium imaging at the fingertips of healthcare providers along with new tools to help simplify interventions with precise needle guidance. Needle placement procedures done by anesthesiologists, musculoskeletal physicians and other point-of-care physicians are increasingly being guided with ultrasound to ensure real-time precision and visualization.

In addition to the new buttons on the probe technology, GE is also highlighting the following features on the new LOGIQ e:

  • A new 1-5 MHz curved transducer for deep penetration of obese patients and an ultra-high frequency 10-22 MHz linear transducer for stunning superficial imaging;
  • Follow-up Tool with Fusion application helps ensure technical consistency from exam-to-exam so that clinical conclusions are not clouded by inconsistent technique, especially useful in musculoskeletal or sports medicine patients;
  • PDI Quantification software provides a numeric representation of the blood flow, which may be associated with inflammation, tumors and synovitis;
  • Needle Recognition with gain allows separate control of the needle appearance as compared to the surrounding anatomy to help physicians see what they most want to see; and
  • New High-Res PDI tool for precise depiction of neovascularization to assist in early detection of inflammation in rheumatology.


“Over the past decade, we have manufactured and shipped over 20,000 Logiq e’s around the world,” said Paul Mullen, general manager of point-of-care ultrasound for GE Healthcare. “This new Logiq e being introduced aims to build upon that legacy by incorporating new features and assets at the forefront of our customers’ minds as they adjust to the ever-evolving health needs of patients in emergency medicine, anesthesiology and musculoskeletal imaging settings.”
