The hospital now has six E9s, which are complemented by a wide range of GE Healthcare ultrasound equipment including Logiq, Voluson and Vivid systems, 20 in all.
States GE: “With the new E-series transducers, the Logiq E9 has changed the way ultrasound is used in radiology. With it’s agile acoustic architecture on our TruScan architecture platform, the system acquires excellent images faster and with less operator interaction, delivers unseen image uniformity from the near to far field and achieves deep penetration even on the largest patients.
