Pictured at the handover of two Voluson E8 ultrasound systems to the Queen Charlotte Hospital in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, are team members (from left) Janet Le-Gallois, Alison Leahy, Iraide Jeanine, Joanna Gregg, Nazhat Ahmadinezhad and Elizabeth Daly-Jones with GE Healthcare women’s ultrasound segment leader Sanjay Srivastava.
The Voluson E8 features a new 4D transvaginal probe to help detect fetal abnormalities earlier than ever, while new matrix array volume probes provide clarity for volume imaging. Increased spatial resolution enables improved visualisation for 2D and multiplanar imaging.
GE intends its automated imaging tool, SonoVCAD (Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Diagnosis) to improve workflow by making it easier to acquire volume images of the fetal heart.
According to Mrs Daly-Jones: “We are delighted with the new systems. Patients and staff are all impressed with the high quality of the images and the staff appreciate their ease of use.”
