GE’s Venue 40 ultrasound system is a masterwork in simplicity. It’s easy to use and intuitive for beginner users, yet advanced enough for complex imaging needs, and the GE Venue 40 effectively streamlining many common ultrasound procedures. Coupled with its intelligent, laptop design is the GE Venue 40’s range of advanced imaging features providing high-resolution images and increased diagnosis confidence. This combination of design and imaging technology allows radiologists and other users the convenience and efficiency to see more patients and provide better, highly detailed ultrasound images.
GE Venue 40 Ultrasound Imaging Benefits
The GE Venue 40 is designed for specific markets, including the essential Point of Care situations and bedside care for vascular access, anesthesia, interventional, MSK, and basic cardiac function. For these reasons, the GE Venue 40 is a widely popular device in this rapidly emerging market.
Some of the Venue 40’s leading imaging technologies and benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Needle recognition for providing accurate vision in three key areas, including needle, anatomy, and motion. This helps reveal the structure of a needle within anatomy, all while ensuring defined edges and detail.
- Power Doppler Imaging (PDI) for highlighting vascular sensitivity for fine vascularity and low flow.
- PDI quantification for diagnosis and monitoring, helping verify the presence of blood flow as well as detecting small vessels, inflammation, and disease states in both adults and children.
- Both deep and superficial imaging performance.
GE Venue 40 Ultrasound Design and Efficiency
In addition to its advanced levels of performance, the GE Venue 40 ultrasound holds high praise for its easy operability and design. For instance, you can take advantage of:
- Pre-configured application settings for fast, intuitive use
- Fully touch operated, splash-resistant screen for easy operation, easy cleaning, and machine longevity
- Quick boot-up times allow for more reliable emergency and point-of-care use
- Adjustable height and screen tilt maximizes ergonomics while reducing user strain
The GE Venue is also incredibly portable, which is an essential feature for point-of-care, general use, and emergency ultrasound care. With four moveable wheels, the Venue 40 can wheel into tight spaces, such as a patient bedside or a trauma bay. The ultrasound’s universal docking system allows for easy mounting in a cart or table, and an optional storage tray ensures that all of your necessary equipment is within arm’s reach.
Providian Medical GE Venue 40 Review
Simply put, this thing is cool and it actually works. It’s not a Franken-Ultrasound like many manufacturers look to create today. It is designed for a specific market and doesn’t try to be everything-to-everyone. GE did a nice job creating this one.
Aside from the great image quality, there are some other great features about the Venue 40. You can connect it directly to a computer or save images on an SD or USB flash drive.
Our customers use the Venue 40 for regional anesthesia, orthopedic/MSK applications, needle guidance and interventional applications. They’re simply blown away by the quality for the price they paid. In fact, the price of the Venue 40 unit makes it an easy choice for those looking to add ultrasound to their practice or hospital. Beware, however, if you get one, you’ll have a lot of people asking you about it and wanting one of their own.

Step 1: Getting Started
This training series will help you get the most out of the Venue 40, showing how to operate the machine efficiently and learning any features that are not obvious or well documented.
If you want to get the most out of this applications training on the GE Venue 40, it’s best to start here and go in sequential order through the parts. Each video builds on the previous training lesson and gives you a more complete understanding of the system, instead of what’s offered in a somewhat jumbled order of the Venue 40 user manual.
For a complete listing of all our free training videos, check out our Ultrasound Equipment Training page.
Step 2: System Tour
This segment of the GE Venue 40 training series takes a tour of the system, its controls and how you interact with the system. This is an important video to help you understand how the system works and how you interact with it.
Step 3: User Interface
This third segment of free video training on the GE Venue 40 Portable tablet-style hand carried ultrasound machine covers more in-depth usage of the user interface throughout its various imaging screens, as well as the controls on how to get around the system.
Although this training series cannot fully replace an on-site technician performing applications training on the GE Venue 40, it works well as a supplement to the user manual and a quick way to learn this portable ultrasound machine.
Step 4: Beginning an Exam
Starting an exam with the GE Venue 40 Point-of-Care ultrasound machine is not as easy as it seems. While it may appear to be straightforward, there are some tricky parts that confuse most people once they start another exam or reboot the system. Some of the items here are very important parts of training on the Venue 40. The user manual doesn’t necessarily cover all that’s involved in starting an exam and dealing with Patient Information on the Venue 40. This is more of what you’d learn in on-site applications training on this bedside ultrasound machine.
Also included in this section on getting through an exam is how to find the patient archive and recall previous exams and previous patients.
Step 5: Setup/Customization
Here we get into personalizing and taking control of the Venue 40. This is where you’ll learn to include your facility name, choose how you want your images stored (USB, SD, etc), cine clip length, time, date, and other such utility customization functions.
Step 6: Imaging
Learn how to navigate the various imaging screens in 2D, Color, and Power Doppler. This walks through the various controls to use while in the various scanning modes.
Some of these items aren’t completely straightforward on the Venue 40, although it can be quite easy for those looking to do simple imaging.
Step 7: Measurements/Annotations
Taking Measurements, using comments/annotations, and pointers on the Venue 40.
The stylus of the Venue 40 is used in most parts of using the Venue 40.
Step 8: Save/Review/Export
In this final part of the free GE Venue 40 video training series, we learn about cineloop review, saving and exporting images. This is one of the easier and straightforward parts of the Venue 40 point-of-care ultrasound machine.
