Carry it with you – from the hospital to an office-based practice – thanks to a design that’s 10 percent lighter and thinner than the Vivid q.
It’s the next step forward from the partner who defined the high-end compact category … and continues to innovate to help you adapt to changing challenges.
Advanced. Accessible. Adaptable.
Wherever you and your patients need it,1  Vivid™ iq delivers premium image quality for cardiac care, including quantification tools, like 2D Auto EF, TVI, IMT, and  shared services.
Echo Lab
Physicians expect exceptional imaging.  The administration demands efficiency. And patients deserve excellent care.  All at today’s increasing patient volumes. Count on Vivid iq’s combination of power and portability to help you achieve the speed and quality in echo this  environment demands.
You don’t have to sacrifice exceptional image quality for the convenience of a compact system. Color Flow Virtual Apex TEE Vivid iq makes 2D TEE’s crucial insights  into heart function accessible without compromising productivity. 2D TEE
Physicians expect exceptional imaging  and performance during portables in critical care settings. Patients deserve excellent care, therefore we delivered a product that can help meet the needs within the ICU and CCU with its small footprint, allowing for minimal space. With today’s increasing patient volumes, you can count on Vivid iq1 to help you adapt to new challenges with the combination of power and portability to help you achieve the speed and quality in the critical care environment meeting the demands necessary to treat critical patients.
Small structures and fast heartbeats present unique challenges to imaging. Vivid iq helps you make quick, confident diagnoses for a wide range of pediatric  and neonatal patients and their families. With two dedicated pediatric probes –  6S-RS and 12S-RS – Vivid iq covers neonates to children.
Shared Services
Shared services pose a wide variety of patient challenges. Manage them all with the help of definitive diagnostic insights via Vivid iq, in areas including vascular, abdominal, OB/GYN and small-parts applications.
Emergency Medicine
Emergency physicians expect exceptional images that can be obtained quickly at the point of care. With its touchscreen functionality, small footprint and closed design, the Vivid iq meets the specific needs of caregivers in the emergency department. The Vivid iq makes ultrasound simple, fast and precise to help you achieve the speed and quality this environment demands.
Physician Office/Clinic
At the gateway to effective care, the focus is on candid conversations with patients, not interactions with equipment. You need an imaging solution that is easy to use with total cost of ownership in mind.

As Agile As You Need to Be
Vivid™ iq is a compact, yet powerful  cardiovascular ultrasound. Carry it  under your arm or on your cart with a multi-connector for probes to wherever you need it … from the echo lab to the  ICU/CCU … from the hospital to an  office practice.

  • Design
  • Reliability
  • Lightweight 10% lighter  10% thinner  than the Vivid q
  • Closed design allows cleaning with disinfectant solutions (Refer to User Manual)
  • Portable up to 1-hour battery (with full charge) with Smart Standby

The newly designed cart was created to protect the console during transportation. The handles serve as “protectors” during transport, making it more robust and reliable. The cart rolls on specially designed casters, making it easy to move in many environments. The new cable management allows for several choices to manage cords with protection from protrusion, avoiding hang ups in surroundings. The cart also allows for a much better viewing angle with the increased height adjustments for scanning while standing or sitting

  • 4-probe port Broad selection of  11 TEE, sector, curved and linear probes
  • Battery pack (3 hours with full charge)

The Vivid iq was built to handle tough daily demands allowing you to focus on the patient and the ultrasound images during the exam. We are so confident in the reliability that we are offering a three-year standard warranty. In the event your product needs attention, we offer a loaner program which reduces your down time.
