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.
