The architecture of the Logiq F8 incorporates the proven capabilities of GE’s premium ultrasound systems such as Logiq E9. At this price point, the Logiq F8 has an excellent price-performance ratio because it integrates advanced tools such as Phase Inversion Harmonic imaging, CrossXBeam, and Speckle Reduction imaging. These tools help simplify the acquisition of images, and enhance their overall quality just like GE’s flagship models.
The hardware and software of the Logiq F8 also looks very familiar to GE’s imaging flagship systems. Operators will easily adapt to its modern workflow tools such as Auto Optimization, Scan Assistant, and Scan Coach. On addition, optional advanced clinical functions such as Static Elastography, Auto IMT, 3D/4D, Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) with Q analysis, and B-Steer will help physicians expand applications of their everyday practice.

GE Logiq F8 FAQs:
• Auto Optimization is a one-touch image optimization function that a user uses 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 users 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.
• SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) reduces speckle noise in the images, which affect the edges and fine details that limit the contrast resolution and make the diagnostic more difficult.
• CrossBeam (Spatial Compounding Imaging) obtains real time sonographic information from several different angles of insonation, and combines them to produce a single image. CrossBeam helps reduce speckle artifacts, enhance mass margin delineation, and improve anatomical details.
• Coded Harmonic Imaging (CHI) utilizes Digitally Encoded Ultrasound (DEU). Harmonics enhances near field resolution for improved small parts imaging. Harmonics diminishes low frequency high amplitude noise and improves imaging for technically difficult patients. Harmonics may be especially beneficial when imaging isoechoic lesions in shallow-depth anatomy in the breast, liver, and hard-to-visualize fetal anatomy. Harmonics may improve B-Mode image quality without introducing a contrast agent.
• 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.
• Auto IMT automates measurement of intima-media thickness of vessels. Auto IMT helps keep track of atherosclerosis diseases from the early stage as it is developed.
• B Steer simply slants B-mode or Color Flow linear images left or right to get more information without moving the probe. This enables enhanced needle visualization in real time for needle guidance procedures. The angle steer function only applies to linear probes.
• Virtual Convex is available on linear and Sector probes. Virtual Convex provides a larger field of view in the far field. Virtual Convex is always active with sector probes.
• 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 shortens exam duration, improves clinical workflow by post-processing, and reduces a time to put the probe on a patient.
• Scan Assistant is the customable scanning assistant tool that enables a user to save scanning protocols of each lab that helps decrease key stokes from up to 60~70% of ordinary operations. With fewer user’s actions, an exam can be complete because a user does not need to move all around the console, and only requires one button to be pushed at most of the exams.
• Scan Coach is GE’s on-demand education tool that can be used while live scanning and can also be incorporated with Scan Assistant. The module shows basic scanning techniques with the graphic of probe position, anatomical structure, and an example of clinical reference image. Scan Coach helps a novice user to be easily accustomed to the system’s use and to capture a quality image.
• Strain Elastography is a non-invasive diagnostic technique that displays the relative elasticity of tissue stiffness compared to the surrounding tissue by a real-time color map that is superimposed on conventional gray scale image. Most malignant lesions have a harder or stiffer consistency than the 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 and imaging, evaluate breast and testicular lesions, and perform a quick monitoring and follow up of interventional procedures. It can also provide additional information to increase diagnostic confidence for musculoskeletal diseases such as tendinopathies, tendinosis, synovial hypertrophy, or tears.
• Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is a myocardial Doppler Imaging with a color overlay on the tissue image that is available on the sector probes. Tissue color overlay can be removed to show just the 2D image, while 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, which measures flow velocities. Tissue signals, however, have higher amplitude and lower velocities, and the signals are extracted by using different filter and gain settings.
