GE Vivid S70 Overview
The GE Vivid S70 is designed to help you rise above complex healthcare challenges, such as helping to reduce non-diagnostic exams and enhancing collaborative care.
The GE Vivid S70 Ultrasound machine combines the proven breadth and performance of the Vivid product line with a new and innovative software-based image processing platform: cSound. The Vivid S70 is GE cardiovascular ultrasound’s high-end scanner.
The cSound architecture benefits all GE Vivid S70 probes and applications. The GE Vivid S70 supports the following clinical applications: Adult cardiac (2D and 4D transesophageal), coronary, pediatric, fetal heart, obstetrics, gynecology, abdominal, small parts, thyroid, adult and neonatal cephalic, peripheral vascular, musculoskeletal, nerves, and urology.
GE’s innovative, programmable and flexible beamforming technology, cSound, provides exceptional image quality and power compared to conventional GE hardware-based beam forming technology. In 4D, cSound delivers volume sizes suited for full volume single-beat and multi-beat 4D acquisition (option). Using both coherent and harmonic image processing, the system provides computational power, ease of imaging, workflow flexibility and product upgradeability.
GE Vivid S70 Ergonomics
19” LED screen
With articulating monitor arm

The up-and-in, down-and-out “Flex Fit” mechanism lets you continuously adjust the control panel’s height leaving legroom for standing or sitting.
Easy Keyboard Storage
The keyboard stores conveniently out of the way in a drawer when not in use.
Narrow, 55 cm (21.7 in) width fits easily into tight spots in busy environments.
Easily maneuver the lightweight (< 154 lbs.) scanner—its rear-wheel direction lock and fold-down monitor keep you in control when pushing it over long distances.
- 3 DLP connectors
- 1 RS connector
- 1 Doppler probe connector
The GE Vivid S70 excels in the following areas:
Exceptional image quality on the GE Vivid S70 Ultrasound Machine is created through the use of Ultra Definition Clarity filtering, elevation compound imaging (considering a wider slice for 2D imaging) with the 6VT probe, HD Imaging (balanced resolution, penetration and image uniformity) and virtual apex (larger field-of-view) for the FPA probes.
Probe Technology – The XDclear series of probes are designed to help deliver powerful and efficient sound waves, with high bandwidth and efficiency. 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.
Ease of use features make GE Vivid S70 an extremely productive 2D and 4D cardiovascular ultrasound system.
The combination of the touch screen control with conventional (tactile) buttons provide intuitive controls, helping the operator maintain focus on the patient and the ultrasound images during the exam. The touch screen can also provide alpha-numeric keyboard entry or a dedicated A/N keyboard option can be purchased.
Ease of use for the operator in 2D imaging is provided by the cSound technology delivering auto optimized excellent image quality with little manipulation along with automated tools like 2D Auto EF, AFI Productivity Package and Scan Assist Pro.
Ease of use in 4D imaging is accomplished with a number of GEHC innovations, including Single Beat 4D, 4D Views, Advanced 4D User Toolbox, Advanced 4D User Quantification Package and 4D Auto LVQ.
Ergonomic features include the FlexFit mechanism enabling continuous pivoting height adjustment of the control panel, allowing the user to adjust distance to the control panel while providing the adequate legroom for standing or sitting positions. In addition, the articulating monitor arm (horizontal and vertical), and lightweight transducers combine to make the Vivid S70 an extremely ergonomic-friendly cardiovascular ultrasound system.
Portability – The GE Vivid S70’s compact size and light weight, combined with a fold-down monitor, enables easy transportation and promotes scanning at the patient site. The battery option provides a transportation mode that keeps the system ready to scan within a few seconds of being connected to a power outlet.
The cSound platform takes GE’s Raw Data to a new level. For image processing and reconstruction, the Vivid S70 utilizes more than 100 times the data compared to the Vivid S6.
Additionally, the GE Vivid S70 uses the proven Raw data format technology that allows for advanced processing on archived images by applying many of the same scan controls and advanced quantitative tools as are available during the original exam.
