GE Healthcare, Waukesha, Wis, will highlight the Vivid E95 4D and E90 2D ultrasound systems with cSound software at RSNA 2015. The cSound is a supercomputer-inspired software that uses algorithms to collect massive amounts of data and then select pixel by pixel the most precise information to generate high-quality images of the heart.
According to the company, these new cardiovascular ultrasound systems are developed to help physicians effectively diagnose conditions in patients while potentially reducing additional tests often required in evaluating heart conditions, such as heart failure.
According to GE Healthcare, both the Vivid E95 4D and E90 2D systems acquire more information than conventional scanners up front, enabling true confocal imaging and adaptive contrast enhancement for robust image quality along with many valuable quantification tools and workflow enhancements. When combined with the cSound software, the E95 and E90 allow detailed views into cardiac structures to enhance communication between echocardiologists and interventionalists. The systems also offer improved performance in near field image quality, lateral wall definition, image uniformity, and penetration.
