Product Highlights

With the success and expansion of its 4D cardiac imaging, GE completely redesigned the GE Vivid 7 Dimension with an emphasis on 4D cardiac imaging and solid ergonomics. The result was the GE Vivid E9 ultrasound, a highly customizable, powerful shared-service system that’s arguably the most versatile and top-performing cardiac ultrasound machine on the market.

Imaging With the GE Vivid E9 Ultrasound

Through the E9’s Accelerated Volume Architecture, this ultrasound features eight times the processing power when compared to conventional ultrasounds. This means a large field-of-view that’s ideal for capturing the entire heart with high frame rates and comprehensive diagnostic information. This imaging architecture also means fewer artifacts and enhanced resolution.

4D cardiological imaging has become a more prevalent practice as cardiologists continue to learn about its usefulness and accuracy. Additionally, 4D ultrasound usage is especially efficient and effective for cardiac studies, including stress echo studies. Other 4D technologies featured in the E9 ultrasound include:

  • 4D Auto LVQ is a mesh-based surface-tracking model that delivers more reproducible results that are less prone to artifacts and variable heart rhythms
  • 4D LV Mass adds an epicardial border to the mesh-based surface-tracking model
  • 4D Strain calculates regional strain values for enhanced visual tracking assessment
  • 4D Views with “one-touch” options to view images such as 4-chamber, 2-chamber, APLAX, mitral valve, septum and aortic valve

As the price decreases each additional year, a refurbished Vivid e9 is quickly becoming an affordable 4D cardiology ultrasound.

GE Vivid E9 Ultrasound Design and Performance

Taking a high-performance 4D cardiac ultrasound with you has never been easier with the GE Vivid E9. It features a slim, lightweight, and maneuverable design, and with its adjustable, ergonomic keyboard, the E9 ultrasound is convenient and comfortable when handling and operating it.

The Vivid E9 also includes a 17-inch, all-digital and high-definition LCD display that tilts and swivels to provide the most comfortable viewing angle.

GE Vivid E9 Ultrasound Transducers

The GE Vivid E9 with XDClear allows a wide range of transducers allowing for cardiac, vascular, abdominal, pediatric, neonatal, fetal heart, obstetric, gynecologic, urological, transcranial small parts, and more.

Imaging with the D-Series transducers is ergonomic and it optimizes image quality through its connection with the Accelerated Volume Architecture of the Vivid E9 ultrasound. Additionally, some of the probe technologies include:

  • In-transducer 4D beamforming for increased bandwidth, harmonic sensitivity, and angular sensitivity
  • Single crystal technology for enhanced signal noise, resolution, and transducer penetration

Providian Medical Vivid e9 Review:

A 4D cardiology ultrasound once seemed a bit of a gimmick, however, the technology has gained a lot of traction and it provides so many different views of the heart with a single capture. No longer does the tech have to find different windows to get an image, they can choose the best window and get all necessary views of the heart. A used GE Vivid e9 should be a top consideration for those with the budget to buy this premium cardiac ultrasound.

Q:What is 4D cardiac imaging?

A: The Vivid e9 4D imaging allows real-time acquisition of a volume image, allowing clinicians to obtain multiple image planes simultaneously, thereby decreasing scan time for echo and stress echo exams.

Q:How is 4D cardiac imaging more efficient?

A: 4D cardiac imaging on the Vivid e9 allows you to acquire parasternal bi-plane and apical tri-plane views in a volume acquisition, eliminating the need to scan from multiple angles and allowing the technician to find the best window and use it for all image acquisition. It is also a time-saver for stress echo exams.

Q:Can I use 4D for a stress echo exam?

A: Yes, it's one of the great benefits because you can acquire all stress echo views from two imaging windows.

Q:What is Multi-Plane or MultiDimensional Imaging?

A: Multiplane and MultiDimension imaging uses the 4D volume acquisition to show all three planes of the heart from one acquisition.

Q:What's the difference between a Vivid e9 "Dimension" and a Vivid e9?

A: The Vivid e9 Vantage was the first version of the Vivid e9 ultrasound machine, and the Vivid e9 Dimension was introduced at its BT04 revision and includes new hardware and optional 4D imaging capabilities.

Q:What is BT02, BT03, BT04, BT06, etc. on the GE Vivid e9 ultrasound machines?

A: This is GE's version of a software level. The "BT" stands for Breakthrough and the "0x" typically represents the year it was released. For example, a Vivid e9 BT06 would equate to a used Vivid e9 ultrasound with a software version of 6.x and released circa 2006. For the Vivid e9, there are BT02, BT03, BT04, BT05, BT06 and BT08 releases.

Q:What is CrossXBeam?

A: CrossXBeam on the GE Vivid e9 is also known as compound imaging. It allows the ultrasound transducer to see from multiple lines of site at different angles, as opposed to the standard line-of-site that's perpendicular to the transducer lens.

Q:What is Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI or SRI HD)?

A: Speckle Reduction Imaging on the Vivid e9 ultrasound machine uses a special software algorithm to identify body tissue and eliminate artifact. The result provides a clearer image with reduced artifact.

Q:Does the Vivid e9 have Triplex imaging capabilities?

A: Yes, the Vivid e9 has Triplex imaging for Spectral, Color, and 2D simultaneous imaging.

Q:What is “Q-Analysis” on the refurbished Vivid e9?

A: Q-Analysis is short for Quantitative Analysis. It includes quantitative assessment tools for LV (Left Ventricular) function. It includes assessment tools such as Tissue Velocity Imaging, Tissue Tracking, Tissue Synchronization Imaging, Strain, Strain Rate Imaging, and 2D Strain.

Q:What is Tissue Velocity Imaging?

A: TVI quantifies myocardial tissue motion.

Q:What is Tissue Tracking?

A: Tissue Tracking displays Tissue Velocity over time and displays a color band that represents motion or distance during systole, resulting in a display of systolic longitudinal displacement.

Q:What is Tissue Synchronization Imaging on a used Vivid e9 system?

A: TSI is a parametric imaging tool based on Tissue Velocity Imaging that provides additional image enhancement for assessing delayed cardiac wall motion.

Q:What Is Strain Imaging?

A: Strain Imaging displays regional detection of myocardial contraction. It helps the clinician to analyze tissue contraction and myocardial function.

Q:What is Strain Rate Imaging?

A: It is typically used by researchers to measure percent of regional deformation of the myocardium... Strain Rate measures the speed of deformation, while Strain measuers the percent of deformation.

Q:What is Automated Function Imaging?

A: AFI is a semi-automated measurement that displays peak longitudinal systolic strain as a bulls-eye display. It is a clinical support tool for measuring left ventricular function at rest.

Q:What is 2D Strain?

A: 2D Strain is a research tool that allows the analysis of complete myocardial motion throughout the entire myocardial motion throughout the heart cycle.
