Put your department ahead of the technology curve with the GE Vivid S60
By combining the proven breadth and performance of the Vivid product line with the cSound powerful, software beamformer image reconstruction platform, the GE Vivid S60 takes ultrasound to a whole new level – delivering excellent image quality at an affordable price.
Conventional ultrasound systems too often yield non-diagnostic exams. Recognizing this, GE has developed a new imaging platform called cSound. In a conventional scanner, ultrasound beamforming is performed by special purpose hardware – a hardware beamformer. Conversely, cSound is truly a software beamformer. Data from every probe element/channel is acquired and temporarily stored in a “Local Big Data Memory” before being analyzed and processed by parallel processors similar to those found in many of today’s supercomputers.
The cSound software beamformer has given us a very high degree of parallel processing, similar to that of conventional hardware beamformer leadership scanners, in a small and portable system.
Among the many ways GE Vivid S60 with cSound performance elevates patient care:
- Excellent visualization quality in 2D, color flow, and Doppler
- Excellent spatial resolution and detail
- New capabilities including automated quantification of the LV
