GE Vivid E90

The Vivid™ E90 is a premium 2D cardiovascular ultrasound system designed to help you rise above some of today’s complex healthcare challenges, such as helping to reduce non-diagnostic exams.

Put your department ahead of the technology curve

By combining the proven breadth and performance of the Vivid product line with the cSound™ powerful, software beamformer image reconstruction platform, the Vivid E90 takes ultrasound to a whole new level – potentially helping to reduce non-diagnostic exams and cost of care.

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 the flexibility to rapidly introduce new complex image processing algorithms, like True Confocal Imaging (TCI), which helps us fully remove the variable focus control, and Adaptive Contrast Enhancement (ACE) which amplifies real signals and reduces undesired noise and artifacts. TCI and ACE together result in exceptional contrast- and spatial resolution, from near field to far field, which may help reduce the number of non-diagnostic exams.

The many ways Vivid E90 with cSound performance elevates patient care:

  • Exceptional visualization with impressive penetration and/or high sensitivity while maintaining high spatial resolution in 2D, color flow and Doppler
  • Elevated performance in:
    • Near field image quality
    • Lateral wall definition
    • Image uniformity
    • Penetration

True Confocal Image for TEE introduces uniform focusing, combined with enhanced contrast resolution throughout the field of view at high frame rates.

Color Flow XDclear transducer technology provides excellent color sensitivity, contrast resolution and spectral crispness.

Triplane lets you image three planes from the same heartbeat, with high temporal and spatial resolution.

Virtual Apex – Phased array probes provide a wide field of view for increased visualization of structures at the sides of the sector.

Automated Function Imaging (AFI) – Assess and quantify left ventricular wall motion at rest, calculating a large set of parameters.

AFI Stress protocols acquire standard apical 2D views and quantify both longitudinal segmental and global strain wall motion assessment at each stress level.

Auto EF – Based on a 2D-speckle tracking algorithm, assists in measuring the most commonly used parameter to describe the LV function.

Peak Strain Dispersion (PSD) – The index shows the standard deviation from the average (of all segments) of the time to peak strain assessment over the entire heart cycle.


Crisp imaging. Deep views.

GE’s proprietary new cSound software beamformer and image reconstruction platform, combined with GE’s XDclear™ probe technology, captures data from every channel in the probe to deliver exceptional 2D image quality with impressive penetration and/or high sensitivity while maintaining high spatial resolution. In addition, 2D TEE is simple, quick and clear.View detailed images of the heart during assessment and diagnosis in the echo lab.
