GE LOGIQ E9 with XDclear 2.0 Review:
This is the 2nd version of the GE Logiq E9 XDclear series, also called R6. The initial XDclear version was launched in 2014 with C1-6-D and C2-9-D transducers. The GE Logiq E9 XDclear 2.0 is a multi-purpose ultrasound system and GE positioned the Logiq E9 XDclear 2.0 as the GE General imaging flagship ultrasound product, GE tried to apply the best of her technologies and features. In this reason, another C3-10-D XDclear transducer is added to strengthen neonatal and pediatric applications. And also, the GE Logiq E9 gives a new option to choose one of 23″ wide screeen LED backlight monitor or 22″ wide screen OLED monitor, previously only a 19″ LCD monitor available. The OLED option could be a hightlight of image improvement for this version with better clarity, contrast, and resolution. In present, interventional procedure with ultrasound guidance is getting common. For better interventional procedure, more dedicated transducers are added at this options such asC2-6b-D, C2-7-D, and L3-9i-D(T type intraoperative probe). Because the GE Logiq E9 is a multi-purpose system including for shared service, Two GE’s cardiac automation technologies – Auto Ejection Fraction (Auto EF) and Cardiac Automatic Function Imaging (Cardiac AFI) – must be highlighted as a major upgrade. However, M5Sc has missed, but we can estimate next time for better fundamental cardiac image quality. For all premium options with the GE Logiq E9 XDclear 2.0 would be nice, but limited number of hospitals or medical centers can afford this due to the high price point. The 1st release of the XDclear version is the R5 version of the GE Logiq 9. Depending on the purpose of buying a system, its XDclear options, interventional options, cardiac options, and Shear wave option, etc can satisfy the need of labs or hospitals with a more affordable price. This logic applies the same to the lower versions of GE Logiq E9 down to R4 and R3.

GE LOGIQ E9 with XDclear 2.0 FAQs:
§ Auto Optimization is a one-touch image optimization function that a user to optimize the image based on the actual B-mode image or Pulse wave Doppler data. The function works based on preset levels (Low, Medium, and High) and allows user to pick a preference for the contrast enhancement in the resulting image. Low does the least amount of contrast enhancement, high does the most. Auto Optimization is available in single or multi image, on live, frozen or CINE images (in B-Mode only), while in zoom, and in Spectral Doppler. Auto Optimization in PW Doppler Mode optimizes the spectral data. Auto adjusts the Velocity Scale (live imaging only), baseline shift, dynamic range, and invert (if preset). Upon deactivation, the spectrum is still optimized.
§ B-Flow utilizes gray scale imaging to visualize a blood flow with different gray intensities according to the reflectors speed and hemodynamics. B-Flow is less dependency on the user or scanning angle, but Color Doppler heavily dependent on scanning angle, and also provides higher frame rate and spatial resolution than Color Flow. B-Flow may help visualize vessel-wall irregularities, kidney perfusion, liver and spleen vasculature, and bladder reflux or jets.
§ LogiqView (Panoramic Imaging) enables a transducer to be moved along a larger organ, stitching multiple images together to form one long image with an extremely wide field of view.
§ Volume Navigation utilizes needle tracking, GPS, and Fusion technologies together. As a reference of other radiologic science modalities such as CR, MR, ultrasound shows a target organ at real-time. GPS marks the lesion location and Needle tracking displays the needle tip and projected path.
§ Anatomical M-Mode helps improve accuracy of arrhythmia assessments and cardiac measurements. It enables to provide M Mode images truly perpendicular to ventricular septum.
§ Strain Elastography is a non-invasive diagnostic technique displaying the relative elasticity of tissue stiffness compared to surrounding tissue by a real-time color map, superimposed on conventional gray scale image. Most malignant lesions have a harder or stiffer consistency than surrounding benign tissue. This change in stiffness can also be present in chronic or inflammatory diseases. To displace the underlying anatomical structures, Strain Elastography requires manual palpation by the user, or compression or decompression of the target produced by the patient respiration. It can be an efficient tool to improve biopsy targeting, image and evaluate breast and testicular lesions, and perform a quick monitoring and follow up of interventional procedures. Additionally, it can provide additional information to increase diagnostic confidence for musculoskeletal diseases such as tendinopathies, tendinosis, synovial hypertrophy or tears.
§ Swear Wave Elastography on the LOGIQ E9 allows the user to visualize the tissue stiffness as a color-coded map in a 2D region of interest as well as providing the user with a quantitative measurement. The LOGIQ E9 C1-6-D and C1-6VN-D probes are optimized for liver Shear Wave elastography. Recently launched XDclear 2.0 supports Breast Swear Wave elastography with ML6-15-D. It is a tool for noninvasive quantification of tissue stiffness and has the potential to be useful in the diagnosis, staging, and management of diseases associated with changes in tissue elasticity.
§ Scan Assistant is the customable scanning assistant tool that enables a user to save scanning protocols of each lab that help decrease key stokes up to 60~70% of ordinary operation. With fewer user’s action, an exam can be complete because a user does not need to move all around console and requires only one button push at most of exam.
§ Compare Assistant views a prior study and current images together in real time via a split screen on the monitor
§ Raw Data is a software tool that enables image processing, quick data re-acquisition, and image analysis with same resolution and same frame rates of original images. Raw Data helps shorten exam duration, improves clinical work flow by post-processing, and reduces a time to put probe on a patient.
§ Auto IMT automates measurement of intima-media thickness of vessel. Auto IMT helps keep tracking atherosclerosis diseases from the early stage as it is developed.
§ Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is myocardial Doppler Imaging with color overlay on tissue image available on the sector probes. Tissue color overlay can be removed to show just the 2D image, still retaining the tissue velocity information. Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is an ultrasound based technique used for quantitative analysis of the cardiac function and has earlier been evaluated according to myocardial velocities. The technique is the same as for Doppler echocardiography, measuring flow velocities. Tissue signals however, have higher amplitude and lower velocities, and the signals are extracted by using different filter and gain settings.
§ Auto EF is the function that automatically measure LV ejection fraction. Along with the Automated Function Imaging (AFI) feature, Auto EF maximizes time efficiency by the reproducible quantitative output that increases physician’s diagnostic confidence.
§ Automated Function Imaging (AFI) is a decision support tool for regional and global assessment of the LV systolic function. AFI is a tool derived from 2D Strain, which calculates the myocardial tissue deformation based on feature tracking on 2D grey scale loops.
§ Quantitative analysis (Q Analysis) software package is designed for analysis of TVI related (Tissue Tracking, Strain, Strain rate, TSI) and Contrast related raw data. Q Analysis traces for velocity or derived Parameters inside defined regions of interest as function of time
