Compared to many conventional scanners, the system acquires more information up front, enabling True Confocal Imaging and Adaptive Contrast Enhancement for robust image quality along with many valuable quantification tools and workflow enhancements.
The system is designed to excel in adult 2D cardiac imaging, as well as in the following clinical application areas: pediatric cardiac, fetal/obstetrics, abdominal (including renal, GYN/pelvic), pediatrics, small organ (including breasts, testes and thyroid), adult and neonatal cephalic, peripheral vascular, musculoskeletal conventional, urology/ prostate, transesophageal, transrectal, transvaginal and intraoperative (including vascular, thoracic/cardiac and abdominal).
GE Healthcare’s exclusive, programmable and flexible beamforming technology, cSound, provides exceptional power compared to that conventional GE hardware-based beam forming technology. In 2D, cSound offers true confocal imaging without the limitation of focal zones or sacrifice of frame rate and spatial resolution. Using both coherent and harmonic image processing, the system provides computational power, ease of imaging, workflow flexibility and product upgradeability.
Exceptional image quality is created through the use of True Confocal Imaging. True Confocal Imaging is enabled by the cSound platform taking advantage of advanced software based image reconstruction and state-of-the-art graphics computer technology. The GE Vivid E90 Ultrasound Machine combines Ultra Definition Clarity filtering, HD Imaging (optimal resolution, penetration and image uniformity), Adaptive Contrast Enhancement (ACE) and virtual apex (wide field-of-view) to deliver excellent cardiovascular ultrasound image quality.
The XDclear series of probes are designed to help deliver powerful and efficient sound waves, with high bandwidth and efficiency. The XDclear probe technology provides impressive deep penetration and high sensitivity while maintaining high spatial resolution. The combination of Single Crystal, Acoustic Amplifier and Cool Stack technologies is the core technology of the XDclear series of probes.
