GE Voluson 730 Expert Ultrasound Equipment Description

The used GE Voluson 730 Expert is among the top-regarded ultrasounds in the industry, with up to 40 volumes per second rate of acquisition and construction of volumetric images in real time. The 730 Expert is loaded with the newest ultrasound technology including CrossXBeam, Speckle Reduction Imaging, Tomographic Ultrasound Imaging (TUI), Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation (STIC), and much more.

The original GE Voluson 730 ultrasound system was a high-end and midrange 4D OB/GYN ultrasound machine that was the most popular and well known 4D system in the world. The Voluson 730 was split into the simpler “Pro” edition and the more powerful “Expert” version with a touchscreen for navigation.
