The GE Vivid q portable cardiac ultrasound system is GE’s top-of-the-line premium portable cardiac ultrasound machine. It features many of the high-end technologies found in the GE Vivid 7 and GE Vivid e9 console-based machines that are not found on the GE Vivid i ultrasound machine, specifically the M4S-RS, and Automated Ejection-Fraction Calculation.
With regards to its image quality and efficient performance, the GE Vivid q also offers:
- Quantitative analysis tools such as Auto EF, Automated Function Imaging (AFI), Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) and Tissue Tracking (TT), and Tissue Synchronization Imaging (TSI)
- Tissue Spectral Doppler Dual Focus for cardiac applications
- Extremely lightweight design and a size that’s no bigger than a laptop
- Availability of over 16 portable ultrasound probes
Triplex imaging capabilities also make this a good choice for phlebology and applications requiring real-time 2D, Spectral Doppler, and Color Imaging.
Increased efficiency with the GE Vivid q
When imaging in fast-paced clinical environments, such as the OR, the GE Vivid q addresses preoperative care needs through transthoracic examinations, adult and pediatric TEE, carotid evaluations, intra-operative ultrasound probe support, and shared service performance.
As a result, you can achieve improved accuracy and diagnostic confidence, while increasing productivity. Furthermore, the Vivid q has a larger keyboard and overall more customizable controls provide better ease-of-use over other portable cardiac ultrasound machines. It is relatively easy to customize its image presets, image controls, programmable keys, annotations and more.
Providian Medical Vivid q Ultrasound Review:
The M4S-RS Matrix cardiac ultrasound probe is considered the best reason to buy the Vivid q… it allows deeper penetration and higher image resolution over the 3S-RS.
The Vivid q (and other Vivid portable ultrasounds) have arguably the best design of GE’s portable ultrasound machines because they are 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.

Step 1: Getting Started
In this training series, you’ll learn the knobology and general use of the Vivid i and Vivid 1 portable cardiovascular ultrasound machines.
Although these videos show the Vivid i, most feature and functionality are the same on the Vivid q and Vivid i ultrasounds.
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.
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.
