GE Venue 40

Venue 40
Portable GE Venue 40 Ultrasound
A different way to view ultrasound

You wouldn’t expect this image quality in a system this compact. Combine fast, high-resolution imaging with a large image-to-screen proportion and you have the tools to make rapid diagnoses, accurately guide needles and view anatomy with exceptional resolution. It’s another tool to help improve patient outcomes.


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.

No One Thought TVs Would be in Every Room Either.   Say hello to Venue™, a simple yet sophisticated technology that puts the power of ultrasound in the hands of clinicians at the point of care. We listened to your needs. We built it to empower you. Imagine the possibilities.   It’s a Different Way to View Ultrasound.   You wouldn’t expect this image quality in a system this compact. Combine fast, high-resolution imaging with a large image-to-screen proportion and you have the tools to make rapid diagnoses, accurately guide needles and view anatomy with exceptional resolution. It’s another tool to help improve patient outcomes.   It’s Technologically Designed to be Easy to Use.   The GE Venue 40 has intuitive, pre-configured application settings and an easy-to-use touch interface. There are no buttons, no keyboard, no knobs to complicate the process or slow you down. Just gel and go.   It Goes Where you Need to go.   The Venue 40 is sleek and can be wheeled into tight spaces like the bedside or trauma bay. With a quick boot up time, it can be ready to scan in the time it takes to put your gloves on. And a universal docking system makes it possible to mount it in a cart or a table dock without the need for tools, making it easy to take from room to room or location to location. Simply pop and go.   A Smooth, Single-Surface Screen. Germs will Have to Find a New Place to Hide.   You wanted an easy-to-clean ultrasound. You got it. Venue features a single-surface screen without seams, buttons, keyboard or a monitor frame that could potentially trap contaminants. A probe connection, flush with the system, further reduces the places germs can hide. Plus, its transparent, durable cover withstands medical disinfectants and everyday wear and tear, making it easier to clean. Just clean and go.   Save. Transfer. Recall. Print. It’s that easy. Simply Plug and Play.   The Venue 40 offers recording, archiving, recall, fi le transfer and printing capabilities. Its flexible archiving means you’ll never have to leave your images in the machine. You can connect and transfer directly to a computer (PC or Mac) or save to SD Card or USB fl ash drive. Quickly save and transfer your images as JPEG or MP4 fi les. Or, use the DVI port to display them live on an external monitor.   Built with Many Options, So you can Build it to be your Own. The Venue 40 gives one overriding benefit that every medical professional can benefit from – confidence. That comes from clearly seeing a vessel or anatomical structures in real time. And with multiple software applications, you choose how to meet your specific needs. Confidently.   Anesthesia Increase precision and confidence with clear anatomy and needle visualization. Interventional Biopsy guidance, line placements and rapid diagnostics just got easier.
