Review

The GE Voluson P8 is an excellent entry-point to the Voluson family and an affordable option to enjoy all benefits of the legacies it has built over decades. The Voluson P8 was developed based on the Voluson S6S8, and E series and was introduced in the market in 2012. The imaging concept and design of the GE Voluson P8 is primarily focused and optimized for OB/GYN applications and is delivered through GE’s advanced imaging technologies like Coded Harmonic Imaging with Pulse Inversion technology, Speckle Reduction Imaging, and CrossXBeam (Compound Resolution Imaging). The GE Voluson P8 also provides an intuitive and easy-to-use keyboard from the Voluson family which allows for the immediate performance of everyday scanning.

One of the major strengths of the GE Voluson P8 is the integration of several of GE’s unique automation technologies. Auto Optimization for 2D and Doppler helps enhance contrast resolutions at the touch of a button. SonoBiometry, SonoNT/IT, SonoAVCfollicle, SonoL&D, and SonoRenderStart all improve the scanning and diagnosis efficiency of key exam operations by reducing the number of keystrokes needed and by enhancing the reproducibility of measurements.

3D HDlive is one of the primary features that sets the GE Voluson P8 apart from its competitors, namely the UGEO H60 and SonoAce R7 from Samsung, and the Philips ClearVue 650. Investors will find this high-resolution 3D imaging technology cost-efficient with added value for physicians and patients.

FAQs

GE Voluson P8 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.

• SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) reduces speckle noise in images affects edges and fine details which limit the contrast resolution and make 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 reducing speckle artifacts, enhancing mass margin delineation, and improving anatomical details.

• Coded Harmonic Imaging (CHI) Harmonic imaging 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 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.

• 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.

• Extended View(XTD) 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.

• 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 helps shorten exam duration, improves clinical work flow by post-processing, and reduces a time to put probe on a patient.

• SonoBiometry – Performs a semi-automatic measurement of the head both head circumference and bi-parietal diameter), abdomen and femur. This tool can help enhance clinical workflow through helping reduce Key strokes to perform biometry measurements.

• SonoNT (Sonography-based Nuchal Translucency) and SonoIT† (Sonography-based Intracranial Translucency) – Voluson technologies that help provide semi-automatic, standardized measurements of the nuchal and intracranial translucency as early as 11 weeks. Both tools can integrate easily into your workflow. SonoNT helps avoid the inter-and intra-observer variability that comes with manual measurements, and helps provide you with the reproducibility you demand.

• SonoAVC*follicle (Sonography-based Automated Volume Count follicle) – Automatically calculates the number and volume of hypoechoic structures in a volume sweep, helping improve efficiency and workflow of follicular assessment. This feature helps to detect low echogenic objects (eg. follicles) in an organ (eg. ovary) and analyzes their shape and volume. From the calculated volume of the object an average diameter will be calculated. All objects detected that way will be listed according to size. The calculation results are displayed in the right monitor area. The objects are listed according to size. All different objects are color coded i.e. the color surrounding the number of the object also denotes the object on the image. If the mouse cursor hovers over a specific item on the list the respective object in the image is highlighted and vice versa. The color of the object is bound to its position on the list.

• Battery Pack is an optional power supply. The system power is maintained by the battery when there is an AC power failure or the power cable is unplugged. Also, the one helps to maintain the system power when it needs to be.
