The GE Vscan with Dual Probe is a portable handheld ultrasound machine with two transducers mounted on either the end of the same probe to give linear(similar to the 8L-RS probe used on Vivid e) and sector(similar to the 3S-RS probe used on Vivid e) functionality to the Vsan. The GE Vscan with Dual Probe and the former version GE VScan have the same system display size and shape of a flip-type cell phone, and the same clinical intended use with exception of small parts, MSK, vascular access, and novascular access. GE invented the category of handheld ultrasound with the Vscan in 2010. GE continuously extended available applications for both clinically and practically with physicians in practice. The dual probe definitely meets the clinical demands to cover various clinical application.

GE Vscan with Dual Probe Review:
The GE Vscan with Dual Probe is a screening and procedure assistant tool. However, by adding a liner probe option on the other side, the GE Vcan with Dual Probe has extended its clinical coverage , especially procedure guidance field and near field screening. Though it is amazing, such a small piece of hardware having limitation due to its screen size, image quality, features and imaging modes. It is an assististing tool. Due to the technical limitation, the GE Vscan with Dual Probe only provdes B mode and Color Doppler mode, However, considering the target of this tool, the GE Vscan with Dual Probe can assist better qualified and trained health care professionals with enabling visualization and measurement of anatomical structures and fluid. The GE Vscan with Dual Probe freely works with PC software so that health professionals can use it with low barriers in their PC OS environements. Recently, APP based ultrasound option on commercial mobile phone become available; but it is not well stablized yet. The Siemens P10 was only one competitor, but now it is out of production and service.

This gives the Viamo excellent image quality. Its fully programmable touch screen provides customizable access to imaging, quantification, and workflow functions.
The M5 is the first compact system from Mindary released in 2008. It has become one of most recommended compact ultrasound options in small practices thanks to the great cost-effectiveness. Especailly, iClear(Mindray auto image optimization function) improves the easy of use and helps a navice user to improve his/her diagnostic capability in shortime. Since its launch, lots of upper grade technologies have migrated.
The E-Cube 7 by Alpinion is positioned as a mid range unit with pricing lower than normal for a mid range system. Alpinion’s strength is in its high image quality, excellent high-spec proprietary probes, and long warranty. Its powerful 3D engines provide solid information on the health of pregnant women and their fetuses as well as gynecologycal diseases. The E-Cube 7 is small and light compared to other mid-range console systems.
The Canon Xario 200 Platinum is a compact and rich featured system that is positioned as a mid-range system. The Canon Xario 200 Platinum is designed to support a full range of applications and can be used as a general-purpose system or a specialized system, depending on the installed software. The Canon Xario 200 Platinum with Canon’s well-known extensive selection of 28 transducers supports a wide range of clinical applications including fetal, abdominal, intra-operative(abdominal), laparoscopic, pediatric, small organs, neonatal cephalic, adult cephalic, trans-rectal, trans-vaginal, musculo-skeletal (conventional), musculo-skeletal (superficial), cardiac adult, cardiac pediatric, trans-esoph(cardiac) and peripheral vessel.
