GE Voluson P8 Ultrasound

Your First Voluson… Years in the Making

 

Voluson* Women’s Health ultrasound has developed a strong reputation for high performance – from its exceptional 2D image quality, practical volumetric tools, and innovative probes, to the streamlined ergonomics that help drive efficient workflow. Now those established benefits have been combined into the new Voluson P8 – an affordable way to acquire your first Voluson and bring the benefits of this high performance ultrasound to your patients.

 

An excellent entry-point to the Voluson family, a Voluson P8 system delivers hard-working capabilities that fit your practice, your patient base, and your budget…with an upgrade pathway that can help keep your system current for years to come.

 

Below is a generalized description of this systems technology, specif‌ications, features and options. The below may not ref‌lect the features and options available on units in our inventory

As easy as 1-2-3D
Hard working ultrasound capabilities – like 2D, Doppler, and 3D imaging – are just a keystroke away with a Voluson P8 system.
Voluson automation advances enable busy practices to maintain high quality while reducing the time needed to conduct, analyze, and report on exams: Your first Voluson… years in the making
  • Intuitive, easy to use keyboard – Helps achieve uninterrupted scanning
  • Auto Optimization for 2D and Doppler – Helps enhance contrast resolution at the touch of a button
  • Auto focus for 2D – Provides automated positioning of the focal zone and allows the user to concentrate on scanning
  • Raw data – Conducts a virtual rescan of the patient post-exam to help increase productivity and improve diagnostic confidence
  • SonoRender Start for 3D – Helps enhance volume rendering with a keystroke
  • Reporting and archiving tools – Enables easy creation of a structured report from a selection of customizable templates, including 1st trimester, 2nd/3rd trimester, and gynecology exams. You can also export a report, including charts and images, in PDF format at the touch of a button.
Image quality you can rely on Voluson technology has established a high standard for 2D and 3D imaging – the P8 continues the tradition. You can count on exceptional images in all applications, from routine OB evaluations and gynecological studies to cardiac, abdominal, vascular, and small parts scanning. Innovative GE tools include:
  • SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) – Helps improve visualization and contrast resolution by reducing intrinsic artifacts
  • HD-Zoom – Helps users localize regions of interest for closer study
  • CrossXBeamCRI* – Helps enhance tissue interfaces and border differentiation
  • Wide range of 2D and 3D probes are available for us in most applications: – Wide sector for endocavitary probes – Enables more anatomical information to be displayed in a single image versus the standard field of view
