System Spotlight: GE Vivid E9

Today's society is one in which almost everyone is always on-the-go and in a rush. This results in patience being at an all-time low. The last thing people want to do is have a long wait at the doctor's office. Enter the GE Vivid E9 with XDclear imaging system. GE has done it again by developing this incredible imaging system with its Vivid E9 platform, which produces enhanced quality in 2D, 4D, color, and Doppler images and cuts the exam time to a more desirable length for the patient. This article aims to share some of the many highlights offered to users of this monumental imaging system.

Cardiac ultrasound images and color Doppler echo

GE keeps clinicians and patients in mind with the Vivid E9 with XDclear technologies. Hard-to-scan patients using the traditional transducers are becoming more and more of an issue with things like obesity on the rise. GE is helping to solve these scanning issues by developing its systems to include enhanced probe technologies, which allow for more sensitivity and image acquisition with higher resolution. The Vivid E9 is trying to counter these high-stress situations in which patients and physicians alike are experiencing increased anxiety due to long scan times resulting from hard-to-scan clients. New developments in acoustic engineering combine technologies like Single Crystal, Cool Stack, and Acoustic Amplification to make XDclear the highest performing transducers GE offers.

GE Healthcare now offers a comprehensive probe portfolio for adult, pediatric, vascular, and abdominal imaging needs. One such enhancement echocardiographic imaging included with the Vivid E9 is the M5Sc-D probe. This combines XDclear with Matrix Array technologies, which bring better sensitivity in color flow and Doppler and increase the 2D and 4D strain proficiency. All of this is included in the EchoPAC software bundle.

One other new feature is the use of what is called PolarVision. This stereo vision processing system uses multiple 2D images to extract 3D information from the scans. PolarVision is enhancing the field of interventional radiology by giving better communication with each scan.

The imaging of tiny, fast-moving heart structures in small babies and fetuses is more accessible with the Vivid E9 with XDclear. This new system delivers advanced new technologies which result in better quality imaging of pediatric and neonatal patients with minimal system adjustments. The Vivid E9 with XDclear is also used in other scanning forms such as OB/GYN, vascular, abdominal, and small-part applications.

In vascular imaging, this system introduces technologies to enhance both 2D and color flow image quality paired with advanced echo-to-noise ratios. The Vivid E9 allows for the higher spatial resolution and deeper penetration required to give a more uniform presentation of anatomical structures throughout the field of view for general and abdominal scanning.

The GE Vivid E9 with XDclear has clearly set itself apart from its competitors. With its uses ranging widely from echocardiography to pediatrics and neonatal, this is one of the most versatile machines on the market.
