Product Highlights

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.

Q:What is cSound?

A: cSound on the Vivid e90 is a beamforming technology that uses software instead of hardware in order to render a more complete and lower-artifact image of the heart in 2D, 3D, and 4D imaging.

Q:What is CrossXBeam?

A: CrossXBeam on the Philips Affiniti 50 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 SRI Speckle Reduction Imaging?

A: Speckle Reduction Imaging on the Vivid e90 portable ultrasound machine uses a special software algorithm to identify body tissue and eliminate artifact. The result provides a clearer image with reduced artifact.

Q:What is BT10, BT13, BT14, on GE 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, in most situations, a BT10 would be a used GE ultrasound machine with a software revision that was released circa 2010.

Q:What is Scan Assistant?

A: The Scan Assitant on GE Ultrasound machines reduces scan time by automatically stepping the user through the steps of an exam. In doing so, it has shown to eliminate up to 78% of keystrokes. General Electric’s Scan Assistant initiates and completes required measurements, automatically steers color Doppler, sets up imaging controls and modes, inserts comments, and automatically re-orders images based on the user’s preference.

Q:What is “Q-Analysis”?

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?

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.
