The GE Vivid q portable cardiac ultrasound system is GE’s top-of-the-line premium portable cardiac ultrasound machine. It features many of the high-end technologies found in the GE Vivid 7 and GE Vivid e9 console-based machines that are not found on the GE Vivid i ultrasound machine, specifically the M4S-RS, and Automated Ejection-Fraction Calculation.

The Vivid q has a larger keyboard and overall more customizable controls provide better ease-of-use over other portable cardiac ultrasound machines for sale. It is relatively easy to customize its image presets, image controls, programmable keys, annotations and more.

Triplex imaging capabilities also make this a good choice for phlebology and applications requiring realtime 2D, Spectral Doppler, and Color Imaging.

Providian Medical Vivid q Ultrasound Review:

The M4S-RS Matrix cardiac ultrasound probe is considered the best reason to buy the Vivid q… it allows deeper penetration and higher image resolution over the 3S-RS.

The Vivid q (and other Vivid portable ultrasounds) have arguably the best design of GE’s portable ultrasound machines because they are  fairly intuitive and consistent. Doctors love its image quality for cardiac, vascular, venous, small parts, and a variety of images requiring excellent nearfield imaging as well as penetration for deep tissue or difficult-to-image patients.
