Product Highlights

The GE Vivid T8 ultrasound machine is a “hybrid” unit combining the cardiovascular capabilities of GE’s Vivid ultrasound machines, with the general imaging features of GE’s Logiq series. The result is an affordable, rugged ultrasound system that is designed to excel in all modalities.

Ideal for both cardiac and shared services, the Vivid T8 ultrasound features advanced technologies such as Tissue Velocity Imaging, AutoEF, SmartStress, Tissue Tracking/Tissue Synchronization Imaging, Automated Function Imaging AFI, Strain/Strain Rate Imaging, and Transesophageal echocardiography.

Cardiac Applications With the GE Vivid T8

Feature rich with the legacy Vivid software, the GE Vivid T8 uses advanced quantitative tools for enhancing the ultrasound’s cardiac imaging capabilities. For instance, some of the cardiac imaging technologies featured in this ultrasound system include:

  • Tissue Velocity Imaging for capturing dynamic information from moving heart tissues
  • AutoEF for automatically assessing left ventricular ejection fraction using speckle-tracking ROI
  • SmartStress automatically adjusts settings to help streamline workflow
  • Tissue Tracking and Tissue Synchronization Imaging

With the addition of a TEE ultrasound transducer, you can guide interventional procedures and achieve transesophageal echocardiography.

Performance and Workflow With the GE Vivid T8 Ultrasound

The GE Vivid T8 ultrasound system optimizes the image viewing experience with its 19-inch LCD monitor and flexible articulated arm, a large 8.4 inch LCD touchscreen, and 4 active transducer ports. The Vivid T8 is also a lightweight system at 128 pounds, allowing for easy mobility no matter the situation.

For the shared services technologies, the General Electric Vivid T8 includes GE’s advanced Logiq-series technologies such as:

  • AutoIMT for automatic edge detection
  • B-Flow for advanced spatial and temporal resolution to help assess blood flow and vessel wall structure
  • Virtual Convex to extend the field of view when using linear transducers
  • Blood Flow Imaging for enhanced visualization of blood flow dynamics
  • LogiqView for increasing the field of view when imaging large organs or difficult-to-image patients

Additionally, the GE Vivid T8 ultrasound is built as a “rugged” ultrasound machine and went through extreme dust and vibration testing in order for it to be used in more demanding situations.

Providian Medical GE Vivid T8 Ultrasound Review:

Historically, Vivid ultrasounds did not provide much in quality shared-services capabilities. And vice-versa, the Logiq series didn’t provide great cardiac imaging. Some machines performed capable shared-services, but nothing really focused truly on addressing shared services in full. The T8 is designed to address this market with a durable, mobile ultrasound machine.

Shared Services environments often require the machine to be moved to multiple locations. GE placed the Vivid T8 through difficult physical stress testing for vibration, as well as environmental tests in which a large amount of dust was introduced to the environment in which the system was being used.

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.

Q:What is CrossXBeam?

A: CrossXBeam on the GE Vivid T8 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 GE Vivid T8 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 BT14 on GE ultrasound machines?

A: This is GE's version of a software level. The "BT" stands for Breakthrough and the associated numbers (14) typically represent the year it was released. For example, in most situations, a BT14 would be a used GE ultrasound machine with a software revision that was released circa 2014.

Q:Does Providian offer any service contracts with the purchase of the GE Vivid T8?

A: Our Providian Medical Field Service offers 1-, 2-, 3-, 4- or 5-year service contracts with the purchase of the GE Vivid T8. We provide discounts for multi-year service contracts. A refurbished GE Vivid T8 purchased from Providian qualifies for OEM service through the manufacturer as well.
