Application training for the GE Logiq P5 premium
KPI’s on-staff sonographer can provide onsite applications training or remote training via video conference at a set price plus travel costs. A pre-recorded video training course is included in the sale, lease or rental of the GE Logiq P5 premium from KPI ultrasound.
Logiq P5 Service Options
Free technical support is available from KPI during installation and over the course of the standard limited warranty. Technical support is available after the warranty period at an hourly cost per issue.
GE Logiq P5 Maintenance
KPI recommends the use of a surge protector along with a dedicated power outlet. Probes should be disinfected after every use with a disinfectant wipe proven not to damage the lens (KPI recommends SonoWipes for this.) KPI recommends one PM visit (preventative maintenance) every year.

GE Logiq P5 BT11 to BT06 Revisions
GE first launched the Logiq P5 in 2006. That first version was designated as BT06. “BT” is an abbreviation of “Break Through” and the number designates the year in which this version was launched. So the GE Logiq P5 premium BT08 was launched in 2008 and was in production till the next version in 2009, the Logiq P5 premium BT09. BT08 and BT09 added CrossXBeam and SRI as standard features and gave access to the 11L linear and E8CS endocavitary probes
In 2011, the Logiq P5 premium BT11 version was released and this is the latest version and is still in production in 2016. BT11 added support for the newer 3Sp adult cardiac sector probe, the 5Sp pediatric cardiac probe, and the 4D8c 4D microconvex probe. New options for Elastography, TVI, Stress Echo, Auto IMT, and SRI-HD were added. The Logiq P5 has always been a reliable ultrasound system, but the BT11 revision is especially stable because of it’s long 5 year history without the need for any further revisions! All this while the Logiq P5 premium became the #1 best selling GE ultrasound unit in production.
Logiq P5 Premium vs. Logiq P5 Pro
The GE Logiq P5 was launched in 2006 and was not labeled as different “Pro” and “Expert” versions like the earlier Logiq 5 had been. There was an optional “premium package” offered with the Logiq P5 BT06 that included CrossXBeam and SRI. With the BT09 version that premium package became part of the standard features and the Logiq P5 was renamed the Logiq P5 premium. This continued in the BT11 version.
Logiq P5 vs. Logiq A5
The GE Logiq A5 is a version of the Logiq P5 with black and white imaging only, without Doppler. This version can be upgraded via hardware and software to a full Logiq P5 though it is costly and rarely done.
Quick comparison: Logiq P5 premium vs. Logiq P5 vs. Logiq A5
Logiq P5 Premium: monitor with articulating arm + 3 active probe ports + CrossXBeam & SRI
Logiq P5: tilt/swivel monitor + 2 active probe ports + (limited with basic options)
Logiq A5: Black & white tilt/swivel monitor + 2 active probe ports + (No Doppler)

Advanced Logiq P5 Probes
The Logiq P5 premium supports a far larger variety of transducer options than any other ultrasound machine in it’s price range. Typically economical ultrasound machines only offer 4-6 probe choices. The Logiq P5 premium has 29 compatible GE transducer choices! This includes three mechanical 4D probes.
The Logiq P5 premium is great for Pediatric scanning: The GE 4D8C 4D microconvex is unique in this price range and the GE 8C Neonatal microconvex has a tiny 11mm scan head ! Pediatric cardiologists will appreciate 2 pediatric sector probe options, the GE 7S and GE 5Sp.
The Logiq P5 premium offers unusually broad choices for Urologists as well with two biplane endocavitary probe options ; the GE BE9CS and GE ERB. Biplane probes are able to scan in the X and Y axis without moving the probe.
The GE Logiq P5 has three compatible intraoperative linear probes that are super compact for use where a typical linear probe would not fit.
Cardiologists will appreciate the 5 sector probes and two non-imaging pencil probes used for listening to the heart and graphing the sound.
Popular GE Logiq P5 Transducers
The GE 4C convex is a second-generation transducer for the Logiq P5 that offers the best penetration and widest scanning field at a good price. The GE 11L linear transducer offers a high frequency that makes it good at MSK imaging while still functioning within the needed range for vascular work. The GE E8C is the most popular and least expensive endocavitary probe for the Logiq P5. The GE 3Sp adult cardiac probe offers a wide scanning range for a variety of patient types at an affordable price.
GE Ultrasound machines similar to the GE Logiq P5
The Logiq P5 premium is the successor to the older Logiq 5 pro and expert. The “P” in the Logiq P5 name stands for the “performance” series. The Logiq P3, P5, and P6 are all part of this same GE product family. The Logiq P3 is an economy system below it in price and features while the Logiq P6 is a midrange ultrasound machine very similar in look and features to the Logiq P5 but with greater power and a couple more probe options. The Logiq F8 is a newer design that is very similar in image quality and price to the Logiq P5 premium but that has a different focus. The Logiq F8 offers a larger monitor and a touchscreen but has a much narrower focus of applications and smaller selection of transducers.
Quick comparison of the Logiq “P” series
Logiq P3: 15” fixed monitor – smallest size – lower image quality – few probes
Logiq P5: 15” monitor with articulating arm – 4D option – 29 probe options
Logiq P6: 17” monitor with articulating arm – more channels/image quality – Matrix linear probe
Logiq P5 competitors from other brands
The Philips ClearVue 550 is similar to the Logiq P5 in price but has a much more general focus and does not offer 4D or any of the specialty probes though general cardiac imaging is much better. The Siemens X300 has a similar price and a wide focus of applications but becomes more expensive for the options like 4D and cardiac than a similarly equipped Logiq P5. The Samsung R7 also competes with the Logiq P5 premium and has inexpensive 4D but no cardiac support as it focuses mainly on women’s health and general imaging.

GE Logiq P5 Applications
Applications or Apps are the types of exams or studies that an ultrasound machine can do. More than this if an ultrasound machine supports a specific application it will have calculations, measurement and reporting software included to support those apps and make them useful in a clinical environment.
The GE Logiq P5 premium offers a wider selection of apps than any other ultrasound machine at this price point. The Logiq P5 also offers a huge variety of compatible transducers that not only support each of these apps but also give users multiple choices.
