Basic comparison between the Vivid 7 and the Vivid i

7 Feb

GE Healthcare has innovated powerful ultrasound imaging platforms to offer new, innovative technology of dimensional proportions. Among the models innovated is the Vivid scanners. The newest model is the Vivid 7 scanner replacing the Vivid i type of scanners.

You may find it hard to change to vivid 7 if you are used to an alternative scanner. Again, a new buyer may have difficulties choosing the best scanner when it comes to their performance. To crack the hard nut, let’s compare the vivid 7 and vivid i in terms of performance then choice can be easy.

The new GE Vivid 7 has an Ultra-Definition Clarity Control which gives multiple 2D that is smooth-edged. It also aids in creating 4D images for cardiac and vascular imaging. The GE Vivid i however have only the Phased-array energy changing technology for 2D and Doppler imaging even though it has multi-focus for quality image optimization.

Vivid 7 scanners boast of Blood Flow Imaging capability that provides enhanced view and analysis of delineation of directional blood flow in vessels. This adds to its 4D Tissue Synchronization Imaging provides a spectrum of tissue movements enabling physicians determine tissue velocity in 4D and accuracy. The Vivid i on the other hand only has the Tissue Doppler Imaging Technology.

The Vivid i also uses Real-time 4D Imaging for cardiac exams giving doctors accurate heart structure and function but the Vivid i relies on Live Anatomical M-Mode in situations where the heart is out of position or has its shape altered.

Rather than depend on the MPEG to compress imaging into files for transfer as experienced with the Vivid i, the GE Vivid 7 uses Real-Time Full Volume option which creates 4D images that are relayed online during scanning. This technology gives physician  real-time information for the all functions around the patient heart.


Buying a Modern Ultrasound Scanner: What to Know

1 Feb

An ultrasound scanner uses high frequency sound waves into the body create an image and are therefore used to examine body organs. However ultrasound can also be used as therapy like for improving blood circulation, pain relief among others.
Before one buys a computer based ultrasound scanner special thought should be placed on the work the scanner is expected to do. This is essential since it will guide you while choosing frequency, size and model. GE LOGIQ 9 for instance, has new volume features which can perform at the highest level and consequently detect new information on a patient. This model allows you comfort and efficiency while carrying out both therapeutic and diagnostic ultrasound scans.
Another thing to consider is ease of movement. If your scan choice needs to be move, ease of mobility should be a priority. The scanner should be either light or have wheels. If one buys the GE LOGIQ 9, you are guaranteed of easy transport since it’s fitted with four swivel wheels.GE-Logiq-9-Transducer-E8C
The aim of a scanner is to generate images from within the body. Quality of images a scanner produces is therefore fundamental in choosing a computer based scanner. Clear image is dependent of the power, frequency and feedback time but at the same time the level of frequency determines the depth of signal penetration. The GE LOGIQ 9 has advanced technology that gives you improved resolution and stunning image quality, enhancing diagnostic capacity.
Computer based ultrasound scanners are technical therefore you should consider how to acquaint yourself with it and also how to maintain it. Warranties and service agreement should be put to check. GE LOGIQ 9 has a comprehensive online user manual that guides the user. With a new model computer based ultrasound scanner like the GE LOGIQ 9, healthcare services will be improved and accurate.
