Summary: GE HealthCare has unveiled the Voluson Signature 20 and 18 ultrasound systems, integrating artificial intelligence to enhance diagnostic capabilities in women’s health. These systems streamline examinations and improve precision with AI-driven functions like voice activation and automated measurements.

Key Takeaways:

  • The new systems significantly shorten exam times through automation.
  • They incorporate cutting-edge AI to boost diagnostic precision and confidence.

GE HealthCare unveiled the Voluson Signature 20 and 18 ultrasound systems, incorporating artificial intelligence, advanced tools, and ergonomic design to streamline examination processes for clinicians and provide clearer imaging of women’s health conditions. These systems aim to enhance diagnostic accuracy and treatment decisions by combining high-performance hardware with scalable software.

AI Efficiency in Women’s Health Care

To help address patient demand and reduce staffing burdens, AI-enabled ultrasound technologies can help support a clear, quick, and accurate diagnosis for clinicians. The latest AI-powered capabilities on the Voluson Signature 20 and 18 enable a number of efficiencies across women’s health care settings including:

  • The new “Hey Voluson” feature allows users to operate the system using voice commands, saving time and keystrokes.
  • SonoLyst, a suite of tools that leverage AI to identify fetal anatomy seen on standard views, then automatically annotates and measures where applicable, and can reduce time to complete standard International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) second trimester exams.
  • SonoPelvicFloor simplifies assessments of the pelvic floor and speeds up exams by automating plane alignment and measurements.
  • Fibroid Mapping uses AI to standardize and streamline fibroid documentation by mapping, measuring, and classifying fibroids.
  • fetalHS simplifies and speeds fetal heart assessments by up to 48% by providing step-by-step, AI-driven guidance to help identify normal fetal heart anatomy.

Wireless Flexibility Enhances Ultrasound Workflow

In addition, a flexible wireless workflow is now a possibility with the integration of Vscan Air CL wireless dual probe with the new Voluson Signature systems, allowing for a wider range of motion because it is cable-free.
