GE Vivid q Ultrasound Equipment Description

The GE Vivid q portable cardiac ultrasound system is GE’s top-of-the-line premium portable cardiac ultrasound machine. The powerful system features many of the high-end technologies found in the GE Vivid 7 and GE Vivid e9 console-based machines, specifically the M4S-RS Matrix cardiac ultrasound probe and Automated Ejection-Fraction Calculation.

Doctors love the Vivid q’s image quality for cardiac, vascular, venous and small parts imaging. The system also provides excellent near field imaging, as well as penetration for deep tissue and difficult-to-image patients.

The ultrasound system has a larger keyboard and customizable controls that provide better ease-of-use over other portable cardiac ultrasound machines. Users can easily customize image presets, image controls, programmable keys, annotations and more with the Vivid q. The system also features Triplex imaging capabilities, making it a good choice for phlebology and applications requiring realtime 2D, Spectral Doppler, and Color Imaging.
