At the 57th annual Clinical Meeting of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), in Chicago, GE Healthcare introduced two new ultrasound systems for the women’s health market, the Voluson E6 and LOGIQ P3.
Designed specifically for obstetric and gynecological clinical applications for the everyday users, the Voluson E6 is the entry-level system to the advanced E-Series Voluson platform. It features new attributes to bring about improved image quality and efficiency, such as innovations in automation for the fetal heart, a scan assistant for quality assurance and improved workflow, and new transducer technology.
“The Voluson E6 is designed to address the needs of OB/GYN physicians who care for large patient populations and need to have a versatile system with reliable, high quality imaging,” said Karl-Heinz Lumpi, general manager, GE Healthcare Women’s Health and Specialty Ultrasound. “This is a system that can be a workhorse for an OB/GYN practice and has expandable capabilities that can grow to meet the future needs of a practice.”
An economical, compact console ultrasound system, the LOGIQ P3 is described as being well-suited for OB applications. The system is compatible with the most frequently used LOGIQ obstetric transducers.
GE also showcased enhancements to its Voluson E8, LOGIQ P5 and LOGIQ P6.
