E6 at Royal London has tools to aid trisomy 21 detection

At the handover of four GE Healthcare Voluson E6 ultrasound systems to the Royal London Hospital are GE Healthcare ultrasound sales manager Alistair Wood, antenatal clinic manager Shirley Starreveld and GE applications specialist Jacqueline Arthur.



The Voluson E6 is the entry level system in the E-Series platform, says GE, providing high image quality in a versatile system designed to meet the daily needs of obs/gynae clinics. Royal London’s systems are equipped with a range of options to cater for its high workload including 4D software, Volume Contrast Imaging and Sonography-based Nuchal Translucency, a tool to provide quantifiable NT measurements that, in conjunction with nasal bone, maternal age and maternal blood sampling, have a high detection rate for trisomy 21.
