Providian Medical Voluson S8 Ultrasound Review:

The Voluson line of ultrasound machines remain the premium choice for those looking for excellent 4D imaging. The S8 provides a more affordable solution over the Voluson E8 or Voluson E10 ultrasound machines. Some customers have found that, as with other Voluson machines, some customization is necessary to provide the best 4D imaging. Check out our 4D ultrasound training to learn about the most important adjustments to get the best 4D ultrasound image.

Q:What is HDLive?

A: HDLive on the Voluson S8 is a new imaging technique for 4D imaging that allows you to use a virtual light source to view a fetus. This gives it a more realistic view of the baby.

Q:What is SonoBiometry?

A: SonoBiometry is a semi-automatic process that performs biometric measurements.

Q:What is the new 4D Convex Transducer?

A: This is a new technology that eliminates the mechanical nature of the 4D ultrasound transducer, resulting in better images, higher frame rates, and much more accurate diagnostic information.

Q:Can I connect the Voluson S8 to an external monitor and/or DVD-Recorder?

A: Yes, however it's not an easy setup. Our specialists know the secrets to setting this up and can customize/tailor the setup to your unique needs.

Q:Does the Voluson S8 export images?

A: Yes, the Voluson S8 can export images to an its integrated DVD/CW RW, Flash memory, or DICOM network for images, backup, and patient data.

Q:Can I connect the Voluson S8 to my network to store my images or send them to a radiologist for review?

A: Yes, the Voluson S8 has full network capabilities, however, you'll need to let your Providian Medical representative know in advance that you'll need DICOM if you want to send your images to a PACS system or radiologist for review.

Q:What's the difference between 3D and 4D imaging?

A: Very little. This is similar to the difference between a snapshot from your camera or a video. 3D is a single image, while 4D is a live, real-time image. In 4D obstetric situations, you would be able to see the baby move, smile, yawn, stretch, etc. The 3D image is one static image while 4D is live continuous imaging.

Q:Does the Voluson S8 have Triplex imaging capabilities?

A: Yes, the Voluson S8 has Triplex imaging for Spectral, Color, and 2D simultaneous imaging.

Q:What is CrossXBeam?

A: CrossXBeam on the Voluson S8 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 Voluson e10 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 BT08, BT10, 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 BT12 would be a used GE ultrasound machine with a software revision that was released circa 2012.

Q:What is TUI?

A: Tomographic Ultrasound Imaging uses 4D imaging technology to create multiple "slices" of an image acquisition for clinical evaluation.
