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.
