GE Vivid S60

Welcome to the Vivid™ S60 from GE Healthcare – a portable, robust 2D system that takes cardiovascular ultrasound to new heights by potentially helping 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 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 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


Crisp imaging. Deep views.
Experience the exceptional 2D image quality powered by cSound’s advanced, software image reconstruction and graphics. Additionally, view detailed images of the heart for assessment and diagnoses in the echo lab.

Adult Echo Color Doppler – The 3Sc phased array cardiac probe combines acoustic amplifier technology and an advanced heat dissipation regime to provide ultra-wide bandwith and high- end image quality.
B-flow is a digital imaging technique that provides real-time visualization of vascular hemodynamics using techniques to boost blood echoes.
Neonatal Head Imaging – Optimized for the neonatal head, the 6S-D provides excellent resolution and penetration.
