GE Vivid E9 4D Cardiovascular ultrasound system
Capture the entire heart in a single beat.
Not just a valve, but the entire ventricle.
And break down the barriers to routine, day-to-day 4D imaging from acquisition to archiving.
Meet the Vivid E9, GE Healthcare’s first cardiovascular ultrasound system built specifically for 4D imaging – from ergonomics to image acquisition to data management.
Featuring our Accelerated Volume Architecture 4D platform for 8X the processing power. Advanced quantification tools help streamline workflow for higher productivity. These tools include 4D Stress and advanced ergonomics. One-touch ease of use puts 4D effortlessly at your fingertips.
As 4D becomes routine in your clinical practice, you still need excellent 2D image quality.
Vivid E9 handles 2D imaging with equal power, precision and agility, made possible with our 4V-D transducer, the second generation 4D probe and the M5S probe’s single-crystal matrix array.
Accelerated Volume Architecture
The Vivid E9 features an Accelerated Volume Architecture (AVA) platform with 8X the processing power of conventional processing. A field of view large enough to capture the entire heart with high frame rates. New D-series transducers can enhance 2D, 4D and shared service imaging across your entire patient population. The result: Exceptional image quality and comprehensive diagnostic information. Ungated. Unspliced. Unbelievable.
Thanks to the power of the Accelerated Volume Architecture, Vivid E9’s Flexi-Volume captures a full volume of data in your choice of one, two or multiple heart cycles to fit your patient. Eight times the processing power delivers twice the volume size with fewer artifacts, giving you the ability to deliver increased volume size, resolution and volume rate, with the quantification you expect from GE. You can see the entire ventricle, not just a valve—with no gating, splicing or ECG needed for single-cycle acquisitions.
The M5S transducer marries matrix-array and single-crystal technologies for excellent endocardial definition and texture, and crisper valves across a wider range of frequencies than traditional transducers.
Built for the Easy 4D exam.
From acquisition to answers.
The Vivid E9 helps make 4D imaging every bit as easy and effortless as 2D imaging. It can bring remarkable improvements to your entire 4D workflow process, thanks to fast, consistent reproducibility.
Advanced 4D Quantification
4D Auto LVQ: A mesh-based surface-tracking model, the 4D Auto LVQ quantification tool provides you with a graphical output of pure 4D volume data. Utilizing temporal data, it delivers more reproducible results that are less prone to artifacts and variable heart rhythms for automatic volume and ejection fractions.
4D LV Mass: Using the above mentioned mesh-based surface tracking model, by adding the epicardial border, an LV Mass and an LV Mass
Index is derived from the same data set.
4D Strain: As an extension to the 4D LV Mass tool, both global and regional strain values are calculated based upon a spatial speckle tracking algorithm. The end result is presented in a Strain Bull’s Eye plot accompanied by Time-Strain curves and Cut Planes for enhanced visual tracking assessment.
4D Views provides you with “one-touch” options to view images such as 4-chamber, 2-chamber, APLAX, mitral valve, septum and aortic valve. After an automatic alignment, it takes the full volume acquisition data set and, with the touch of a button, automatically crops away the volume to instantly deliver the view you want. 4D Views helps eliminate the manual cropping and cutting of conventional 3D workflow—a time-consuming process that’s difficult to teach and learn.
4D Virtual Store
This innovative feature helps reduce the size of patient studies by using image pointers to refer back to the original full-volume data set, rather than saving multiple large data sets for every new crop view or measurement.
Helping improve workflow for stress echo procedures, 4D Stress is an innovative first step in helping you integrate 4D into the routine of your day-to-day clinical practice. Acquire full volume. Using 4D Stress, the Vivid E9 then cuts that
volumetric view into three planes for short-axis analysis and three planes for long-axis analysis, so you can view images more easily.
With the Vivid E9, you can now visualize short-axis slices of the entire ventricle under stress. See views you’ve never seen before with conventional stress echo, which only shows you one slice in the short-axis view.
Advanced 4D User Tool Box
For 4D Auto LVQ and 4D Views, an automated tool, Auto Align, helps simplify and speed up the process of aligning the left ventricle. Multi-Slice Imaging provides you with a live imaging mode where you can chose between viewing 5, 7, 9 or 12 slices, for simultaneous acquisition and assessment. Dynamic Multi-Slice and Dynamic Crop enables continuous display of the same structures throughout the cardiac cycle, compensating for out-of-plane motion in short axis views, potentially improving accuracy of wall motion scoring.
With Scan Assist, you can quickly customize the system for your departmental protocols for CRT optimization, and let the system guide you to the next view, mode and measurement. Using new Scan Assist technology, you can acquire single-cycle or multi-cycle full volumes in any variation of traditional, multidimensional or full-volume views. There are also templates for both exercise and pharmacologic stress, all customizable using Scan Assist.
Scan Assist Pro
With Scan Assist Pro you can customize the system for your standard echo, vascular and abdominal exams. The protocols assist you throughout each step of an exam, by automatically setting up modes and measurements, as well as annotations, helping enhance image acquisition consistency and reduce number of keystrokes.
From its slim, lightweight, maneuverable design, to its adjustable electronic keyboard, the Vivid E9 system is ergonomically designed to be easier to handle and operate.
40% smaller and 30% lighter than console-based ultrasound systems, the highly mobile Vivid E9 is ready to roll right to the bedside.
Using one-touch ergonomics, the Vivid E9’s keyboard position, LCD display angle and touch panel interface can be easily configured to your preferences.
Adjustable LCD display
The 17-inch all-digital high-definition LCD display tilts and swivels to a comfortable viewing angle.
Accessible touch panel controls
The Vivid E9’s touch panel uses fewer hard keys, making the keyboard smaller and the keys larger for easier access.
Expanded 4D imaging controls are organized for an easy 4D workflow, with flexibility for future expansion for additional 4D features.
Adjustable floating keyboard With one touch, you can easily adjust the height and position of the Vivid E9 keyboard. Once comfortably positioned, just lock it in place to help prevent accidental shifting.
Easy keyboard storage
The keyboard stores conveniently out of the way in a drawer when not in use.
Convenient data management
Data management options are conveniently located, with multiple USB ports and a DVR recorder.
