GE Vivid i Ultrasound
With the GE Vivid i ultrasound machine, you’re getting lightweight mobility and excellent imaging abilities. More importantly, you’re getting a premium, portable cardiac ultrasound that holds a top spot among the similar portable cardiac ultrasounds available.
From great penetration to optimal image quality and stress echo capabilities, the GE Vivid i ultrasound is ideal for meeting a wide range of OB and anesthesia needs. You can also achieve high-resolution images for monitoring, regional anesthesia, carotid evaluation, and saphenous vein harvesting.
The Vivid i aims to give your exams the robust images you need for increased diagnostic accuracy and confidence. Excellent raw data and ultra definition algorithms are central to this advanced imaging quality, while some other features contributing to the Vivid i’s high-end imaging performance include:
- Advanced speckle reduction
- Clarity and Adaptive Reject for further optimizing image quality
- Smart Depth for automatically adapting the imaging parameters for a variety of exams
- SmartStress technology aids a streamlined workflow
- Tissue Synchronization Imaging helps translate comprehensive quantifications into easy-to-read images
Speaking of quantification, the Vivid i boasts an exceptional level of quantitative analysis, ideal for cardiac applications. Allowing for accurate visualization and measurable assurance, the GE Vivid i expands cardiac imaging through the following features:
- Tissue Velocity Imaging displays dynamic information about the heart and moving heart tissues
- Tissue Tracking aids in the detection of coronary heart disease
- EchoPAC Analysis for organizing raw data and conducting a full range of quantitative analysis, including TVI, TT, TSI, and Strain.
With these technologies, the GE Vivid i addresses one of the biggest challenges in cardiovascular care — access to complete, real-time diagnostic information. Triplex imaging capabilities also make this a good choice for phlebology and applications requiring real-time 2D, Spectral Doppler, and Color Imaging.
GE Vivid i Applications
The GE Vivid i is renowned for its benefits in cardiac imaging, but this portable ultrasound is also suitable for:
- Small Parts
The GE Vivid i ultrasound may be a powerhouse for OB imaging and cardiac applications, but what really draws radiologists is its dramatic intuitive interface, lightweight portability, and wireless design. The well-designed interface aims to increase efficiency and streamline patient throughput. The Vivid i ultrasound also makes it relatively easy to tap into its extensive of customizations, image controls, programmable keys, annotations and more.
Providian Medical Ultrasound Review
There’s not much we can say about the GE Vivid i that isn’t positive. It holds its value, has a great price point, is only as complicated as you want it to be. This is probably the best design of GE’s portable ultrasound machines, as it’s fairly intuitive and consistent. Doctors love its image quality for cardiac, vascular, venous, small parts, and a variety of images requiring excellent nearfield imaging as well as penetration for deep tissue or difficult-to-image patients.
The GE Vivid i’s successor, the GE Vivid q portable cardiovascular ultrasound, just missed our Best Portable Ultrasounds category simply because its pricepoint makes takes it out-of-reach for some customers. However, either system will provide you with excellent image quality and all the features you’ll need out of a portable cardiac ultrasound machine.
For advanced use, the Vivid i also has many imaging options for cardiologists, such as Tissue Tracking, Tissue Velocity Imaging, Blood Flow Imaging (B-Flow), TSI Tissue Syncronization Imaging, Automated Ejection-Fraction calculation, Stress Echo, Contrast Imaging, IMT Measurement Program, Quantitave Analysis Q-Analysis), LVO Contrast, and LogiqView (panoramic imaging). More recent software versions also allow for shared-services imaging option by adding an OB/GYN package.

Step 1: Getting Started
In this training series, you’ll learn the knobology and general use of the Vivid i portable cardiovascular ultrasound machine.
This first installment of the training includes an overview and understanding of how to use the ultrasound most efficiently. An explanation of all the controls is included as well as the on-screen information.
The Vivid i can be a cumbersome and difficult ultrasound to use, but once you learn how and why it works, it can be very powerful and efficient.
This is an important video to watch, as subsequent training videos build on the knowledge taught here.
This is one among many of our videos in our free Ultrasound Machine Hands-On Training Library.

Step 2: 2D Imaging/Optimization
This part training series covers the basics of 2D imaging and the tools available to optimize your image. While the default imaging presets are often considered very good, some prefer to optimize for higher frame rates, penetration, or overall image contrast using focus positions, gray maps, dynamic range, depth and other such tools. This training video also covers how to save these custom presets so you’ll have available every time you scan.
This is a key part of our video series to best understand the functionality and use of the machine.
Step 3: Doppler/M-Mode
Understanding Doppler and M-Mode imaging is a key part for cardiovascular imaging. Here you’ll learn how to use Color, Doppler, and M-Mode, for general use, as well as how to optimize the image for better frame rates or improved image quality.
Step 4: Measurements/Annotations
Learn how to perform measurements in 2D and Doppler modes, as well as making comments (annotations) on your images.
Step 5: Setup/Customization
Customize and setup your ultrasound machine to your own specifications… A key part of using your ultrasound machine is customizing it for your own use and setting it up properly. It covers all the functions in the Config screens, except for DICOM setup. DICOM is reserved in its own chapter later in the training series. Be sure to go through this video in its entirety to make sure your system performs best to your own needs.
Step 6: Review/Export/Reports
One of the top frustrations for users involves exporting images. It’s not intuitive. This part of the video series teaches much of what is not clear in the user manual on exporting. Reports and image review are also covered in this chapter. Once you understand its workflow, exporting images is not as complicated as it initially seems… it’s simply not very intuitive.
Step 7: DICOM Connectivity
Hands down, this is one of the most difficult and confusing parts of the Vivid ultrasound machine. Avoiding the “Frowny Face” and achieving that “Smiley Face” can be quite frustrating for users of all levels. While the DICOM functionality is quite powerful, the manual doesn’t cover it well and nearly all users fail in their initial try at setting this up. Once it’s understood, it’s easy to forget. This video walks you step-by-step through getting your system connected to a PACS system.
