The used GE Vivid e90 is one of three GE cardiovascular ultrasound machines to introduce GE’s innovative cSound beamforming technology. The e90 is a premium cardiac ultrasound machine, remaining among the top choices in high-end cardiovascular ultrasound machines

cSound technology on the refurbished Vivid e90 was released in 2015 as a completely new beamforming technology, not used by any other manufacturer. cSound uses software instead of hardware to perform beamforming functions, which acquires a complete scan of the heart before displaying it on its 22″ OLED screen. GE claims it uses 10-15% more data than traditional hardware beamforming.

The Vivid e90 provides exceptional cardiac image quality, with reduced artifact and clearer, more realistic image of the heart.

The Vivid e90 also includes all of GE’s premium cardiac ultrasound features that are so well known for the Vivid series.

The difference between the Vivid e90 and Vivid e95 ultrasound machines is the e90 is a 2D machine whereas the e95 is a 4D machine.

Providian Medical’s Vivid e90 Ultrasound Machine Review

Because the cSound is a new technology, there’s bound to be bugs in the system for at least the first two years of its existence. This is the main reason you’ll want to purchase this on the refurbished market. The second reason is that a premium ultrasound system comes at a premium price.

It’s important to note that GE’s Vivid series clearly lives up to its “premium” label… in price and performance.

Since acquiring Vingmed many years ago, GE has consistently led the market in cardiovascular ultrasound, competing head-to-head with the other industry leader Philips.

The e90 continues the tradition of premium cardiac ultrasound.
