GE Vivid E95

The Vivid™ E95 is a premium 4D cardiovascular ultrasound system designed to help you rise above some of today’s complex healthcare challenges.

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 E95 takes 4D 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 number of non-diagnostic exams.

The many ways Vivid E95 with cSound performance elevates patient care:

  • Detailed views into cardiac structures to enhance communication betweeen echocardiologists and interventionalists
  • Elevated performance in: Near field image quality, Lateral wall definition, Image uniformity and Penetration

Visualization

Exceptional 2D and 4D image quality

The Vivid E95 quickly brings you quantifiable information with high contrast and spatial resolution – even for patients with body types or conditions that make them difficult to scan. GE’s XDclear™ probe technology pairs with our new imaging platform to capture data from every channel in the probe.


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

HDlive™ is an advanced visualization method that simulates light propagation and scattering through tissue.

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 enhanced visualization of structures at the sides of the sector.

Quantification

Define the care path
Quantification with Vivid E95 is all about helping providers evaluate and address cardiovascular issues.


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.

4D Strain calculates both global and regional strain values based upon a spatial speckle-tracking algorithm. The information is presented in a strain bull’s-eye plot.

4D Auto AVQ automatically segments, aligns and quantifies the aortic outflow tract – vital to device sizing and orientation for TAVI/TAVR procedures.

Workflow

Streamlining your exams
Vivid E95 with cSound performance makes 4D imaging as easy as 2D imaging with efficient and intuitive tools. The high-quality DICOM® adapts to your preferences in terms of resolution and gray scale. You’ll also appreciate the simple, tablet-like experience of the new configurable touch panel with an Image Manager for quick and easy access to patient images.

4D TEE

With TEE procedures growing, so is the need to find ways to achieve the benefits of 4D imaging without compromising productivity.

Powered by cSound, 4D TEE is simple, quick and clear on the Vivid E95. View precise images of the heart during assessment and diagnosis in the echo lab. Confidently steer image-guided procedures in the cath lab. Support invasive surgical procedures in the OR.


Multi-slice imaging, available in live or replay, helps the user extract conventional long-axis and short-axis views from 4D volume data sets.

Laser Lines enhances your depth perception by clearly showing the 2D-4D relationship as two lines superimposed on a volume rendering that reflects the two planes extracted from the original 4D volume.
