The GE Vivid iq is the successor to GE’s very popular advanced portable cardiovascular ultrasound machines, the GE Vivid i and the GE Vivid q. The refurbished Vivid iq is a completely redesigned product aimed at premium cardiovascular imaging, and is also a shared service ultrasound machine for OB/GYN, Small Parts, Vascular, and Abdominal imaging.
The design of the used GE Vivid iq uses a touchscreen interface that operates similar to that of a tablet or touchscreen PC. The closed surface of the user interface makes it easy to clean and disinfect. It is also 10% lighter than the Vivid q, weighing just under 10lbs.
As a premium portable cardiovascular ultrasound machine, the Vivid iq has advanced quantification tools such as Tissue Velocity Imaging, Tissue Tracking, Tissue Synchronization, Strain Rate, AutoEF, AFI, AutoIMT, and RAW data.
The Vivid iq has 4D TEE and ICE transducer capabilities, a rare feature on portable ultrasound machines.
Providian Medical GE Vivid iq Review
The Vivid iq took a leap with the new interface, driven by touchscreen. The lack of a physical keyboard may be unpopular for some, but overall the system is easier to use and less complicated than any other mid- or high-end portable ultrasound machine. Image quality is superior, as expected from one of GE’s premium products.

Step 1: Getting Started
The GE Vivid iq is a complete redesign over GE’s previous portable cardiovascular ultrasound machines: the GE Vivid i and the GE Vivid q. As a touchscreen-driven system, learning to use the GE Vivid iq takes some time to get accustomed to the relocation of controls and its overall workflow.
Part 1 of our GE Vivid iq training series takes you through this new system and user interface.
Links to all the videos in this series can be found below the video. For more training videos, check out our Ultrasound Machine Training Library. Interested in purchasing a Vivid iq? Call us today at 877-661-8224.
Step 2: 2D Imaging/Optimization
Part 2 of our GE Vivid iq Training series steps into performing 2D imaging and image optimization. This video builds on the previous video, learning how to use the touchscreen swipes, gestures and control panels to help you achieve the best image possible.
Step 3: Measurements/Annotations
Part 3 of our GE Vivid iq training series shows the different ways you can use the comments and calc/measurement packages in an efficient manner. Because there is no keyboard, some find the methods somewhat inconvenient. However, there are ways to make it easier, including multiple ways of achieving the same task.
Step 4: Doppler/Strain/TVI
As the most powerful portable cardiovascular ultrasound machine on the market, the Vivid iq has many features that are found on a console machine. Part 4 of our Vivid iq training shows how to use Doppler, as well as how to activate the various advanced quantification packages.
Step 5: Review/Export/Report
The GE Vivid iq can export images to USB, Network, and DICOM/PACS. This video covers reviewing images, comparing images, creating a report and exporting. Before exporting to a DICOM/PACS, you’ll need to view Part 7 of this training series, which covers setting up the network and DICOM connectivity.
Step 6: System Setup
The GE Vivid iq has extensive system setup and customization options. As a touchscreen-based system, proper setup can help improve your workflow and make your exams more efficient. In this part of our video training I cover all the various screens and pages with explanations of the more important system setup features.
Step 7: DICOM Setup
DICOM setup on the GE Vivid iq system can be quite difficult, and the user manual isn’t helpful in getting you connected properly. While it is quite powerful and allows you to do many things, following the correct steps will save you, quite literally, hours of frustration. Be sure to follow the instructions carefully as the steps don’t follow the workflow that seems natural on the Setup pages.
