GE is widely acknowledged as being a world leader in ultrasound system technology for women’s healthcare. The company’s GE Voluson Series of ultrasound machines allow gynaecologists and clinicians within the areas of obstetrics, gynaecology and fertility, to undertake complex women’s health examinations with ease, providing precise diagnostics through superior image quality in a time critical manner.
The most widely used ultrasound machines within the GE Voluson range are the GE Voluson E6, GE Voluson E8 and at the very top of this range being the most advanced ultrasound system is the GE Voluson E10. The GE Voluson 10 is a premium 4D ultrasound machine that sets the standard, and is part of GE’s ‘Expert Series’ designed for use in complex cases. It is the most innovative, powerful and advanced Ultrasound system that GE manufacture and overcomes the issues of diagnostic limitations that alternative Ultrasound technology can present. This is due to the new GE technology within the GE Voluson E10 – the ‘Radiance System Architecture’ together with the first commercially available curved matrix electronic 4D probe eM6C.
Harnessing this ground-breaking technology, the GE Voluson E10 allows clinicians within the field of gynaecology and obstetrics to be far more efficient in obtaining high resolution images in flexible formats, obtain more accurate measurements, and as the data transfer rate is 10 times faster, this results in very fast frame rates whilst still maintaining high resolution so increasing workflow efficiency. The Radiation System Architecture gives four times more ultrasound pathways, ensuing increased penetration and clarity for 2D and 3D/4D images.
This feature of the GE Voluson E10 makes this ultrasound scanner particularly useful for application in baby scans. In the past clinicians have struggled with having to show proud parents to be grainy black-and-white images of their baby, and sometimes having to draw a picture on top of the ultrasound to help them understand what they are seeing. The GE’s Voluson E10 ultrasound machine offers 4X ultrasound pathways that generate spectacular 2D and 3D/4D images with increased penetration and clarity which massively improves diagnostic capabilities for improved care of the patient. The GE Voluson E10, is also the first ultrasound system in the obstetrics and gynaecology field that has built-in 3D-printing capability which means that doctors can use it to help parents better understand congenital defects such as cleft lips, abnormal extremities or abdominal wall defects. In some cases, 3D printing can enhance discussions about surgical planning and serve as an educational tool. The reproduction of this data for discussion between medical teams and patients from the GE Voluson E10 is of course completely secure to ensure patient confidentiality.
The GE Voluson E10 also features Biplane imaging which allows high resolution and high frame rate images to be displayed in two perpendicular planes both retaining exceptional clarity; VCI-A (Volume Contrast Imaging) which creates high contrast resolution with grayscale and colour Doppler images; eSTIC (Spatio-temporal image correlation) which produces up to a 75% reduction in acquisition time over traditional STIC for fetal cardiac exams; e4D SnapShot real time 4D images for higher resolution; 3D volume or eSTIC data sets and Tricefy Inside capabilities.
The GE Voluson E10 was designed to superseded but not completely replace the lower priced GE Voluson E8 as it offers four times the processing power of the GE Voluson E8 so enabling advanced applications and efficient workflow. In comparison to the E8, the E10 possesses a larger screen for enhanced viewing of scans, a more sophisticated beam formation, and newer rendering technologies. The exceptional processing power and speed of the GE Voluson E10 mean faster render times and smoother frame rates which provide HD live that is extremely clear and realistic.
The GE Voluson E10 is undoubtedly the ultrasound machine of choice for a larger hospital with a heavy workload or a facility dealing with more complex cases, but of course attracts a higher price for this advanced ultrasound machine. In comparison, if your facility is undertaking more general women’s health examinations or/and looking for a budget friendly ultrasound machine then the GE Voluson E6 or E8 may be preferable options. The GE Voluson E6 is a feature reduced version of the E8 due to having fewer channels on the beamformer, but still delivers excellent image quality in 4D, 2D and 3D, can easily be relocated and is energy efficient. The GE Voluson E8 has more probes and options than the E6 including Advanced STIC, V-SRI, and Expert is also available on the GE Voluson E8.
