The GE Venue 40 is a hand carried ultrasound machine with a unique touchscreen integrated monitor that makes cleaning simple as there is no keyboard to clean. It is light weight and can be mounted on a wall or cart.
The intuitive touch user interface offers easy gel-and-go scanning – just select a probe and preset in one step. Designed for speed, it takes just moments to boot up and has no buttons, keyboard or knobs to slow you down when you’re scanning the patient or disinfecting the system.
The GE Vscan with Dual Probe is a portable handheld ultrasound machine with two transducers mounted on either the end of the same probe to give linear(similar to the 8L-RS probe used on Vivid e) and sector(similar to the 3S-RS probe used on Vivid e) functionality to the Vsan. The GE Vscan with Dual Probe and the former version GE VScan have the same system display size and shape of a flip-type cell phone, and the same clinical intended use with exception of small parts, MSK, vascular access, and novascular access. GE invented the category of handheld ultrasound with the Vscan in 2010. GE continuously extended available applications for both clinically and practically with physicians in practice. The dual probe definitely meets the clinical demands to cover various clinical application.
The Philips Lumify is the newest app-based ultrasound solution on your compatible smart device, such as Android based smart device, galaxy tab. The way to use the Philips Lumify is simple. A user downloads the Philips Lumify mobile app to the smart device, and connects the Philips Lumify probe connector to your compatible smart device. The Philips Lumify probe connector is more unique than any conventional ultrasound probe connector, micro USB type. So you don’t need to have a dedicated system to operate your handheld ultrasound.
The Philips Lumify supports three transducer types – Convex(C5-2), Linear(L12-4), and Phased Array(S4-1). The applications of the Philips Lumify are extended: cardiac, abdominal with lung, Ob/GYn, FAST exam, soft tissue, musculoskeletal, lung, and vascular scanning. With its mobility and flexibility, the Philips Lumify can bring wide mobile ultrasound capacity in your various clinical environments as a personalized point-of-care solution. The Philips Lumify mobile ultrasound enables you to quickly send and share images, notes, and diagnostic data via e-mail, DICOM to PACS, a shared network, or a local directory.
The Philips Lumify is a mobile app based ultrasound solution; nevertheless, it does not miss high image optimization technology such as SonoCT real-time compounding imaging, Tissue Harmonic Imaging, XRES, adaptive imaging processing, and AutoSCAN intelligent optimization, which are core Philips imaging technologies. Available imaging modes of the Philips Lumify include 2D mode, M-mode, and Color Doppler mode. Pulsed wave Doppler is not supported. With its intuitive interface of a smart device and UI design of the mobile app, the Philips Lumify reduces the learning curve of novice users.
The GE Vscan Extend is a pocket-sized ultrasound with the world’s first touchscreen interface like your smartphone. Not like a previous flip phone style, Vscan with Dual Probe or Vscan, the GE Vscan Extend comes in a sector or dual probe configuration. Those two respective sector and linear probe options support similarly to the 8L-RS on the Vivid e, and the 3S-Rs probe on the Vivid e. The field-of view of the sector probe for black-and-white imaging is up to 70 degrees with maximum depth of 24cm. Color flow sector represents blood flow within an angle of up to 40 degrees. Additionally, the field-of-view of the linear probe for black-and-white imaging is aperture width of 2.9cm with maximum depth of 8 cm. Color flow linear represents blood flow over image with full aperture and entire depth.
The GE Vscan Extend provides the same clinical coverages like the previous Vscan with sector probe and Vscan with Dual Probe including cardiac, abdomen, carotids, thyroid and lungs.
The GE Vscan Extend is a smart phone type that is much familiar with current smart phone users with easy connectivity and a thumb-controllable user interface. One of most improved advantages from the previous Vscan is that the GE Vscan Extend easily integrates handheld ultrasound imaging with the hospital’s wireless network and DICOM – based on documentation and reporting.
Exams can be manually labeled with patient information. The GE Vscan Extend synchronizes on-board DICOM Modality Worklist on request (option available with DICOM configuration). Such worklist supports consistent labeling of images, videos and exams before exporting to DICOM PACS. Archived data is stored in the GE Vscan Extend memory and can be backed up on a microSD or microSDHC card with generic formats: jpg for still frames, mp4 for videos. All data is stored in examination folders that can be linked with patient information, and can be recalled for review. All saved data will be secured with FIPS 197 compliant database encryption (SQL Cipher with PBKDF2 – based key generation and AES-256 bit encryption).
GE VSCAN is smallest portable ultrasound machine. It’s only the size of a mobile ultrasound! This innovative pocket-sized ultrasound is the first to house two transducers in one probe – enabling a non-invasive look inside the body, with both shallow and deep views.
