Evaluation: GE Healthcare Voluson E10 Premium Obstetric/Gynecologic Ultrasound Scanner

May 8, 2019 | Evaluations & Guidance


  • The GE Voluson E10 is a dedicated women's imaging scanner for basic and advanced diagnostic obstetric and gynecologic ultrasound imaging examinations. These scanners are typically used to assess the developing fetus to determine gestational age, assess fetal and maternal anatomy and physiology, and determine fetal growth rate. Gynecologic applications include assessing the uterus and ovaries in patients who have pelvic pain, examining pelvic masses identified during physical exams, and monitoring treatment response and performing ultrasound-guided egg retrievals in patients who are on hormonal therapy.
  • These scanners are also used for:
    • Ultrasound guidance during interventional procedures such as amniocentesis and umbilical cord blood sampling
    • General-purpose ultrasound imaging examinations
  • Major device components and software features include:
    • A console that contains a computer that controls the ultrasound signal generator, receiver, and processor.
      • The console runs on a Windows 10 platform and contains a 1 TB hard disk drive for onboard data storage, and has data input and output ports.
      • The console dimensions (W × D × H) are 58 × 94 × 133 to 167 cm (22.8 × 37 × 52.4 to 65.7 in). It weighs 147 kg (324 lb) and has 15 cm (6 in) double casters. All of the casters swivel and have a brake lock; the front casters also have a swivel lock. There is a storage compartment on the front of the console under the control panel that can be used for a thermal printer or accessories such as transducers, or exam gloves. The side panels of the console serve as components of the scanner's transducer cable management system. The console has a data input/output panel on the rear that includes two USB ports, one HDMI output, one network port, one VGA output, one S-Video output, and L/R audio output ports. An ECG input port is also included if the scanner has the ECG option.
    • A control panel user interface
      • The control panel is used to enter patient data, select transducers, select presets and imaging modes, adjust image quality, obtain measurements, annotate images, and perform calculations. The scanner supports the vendor's Radiance System Architecture, Active Matrix transducer technology, and various modes and features, including: M-Mode, Anatomical M-Mode (AMM), pulsed-wave (PW) Doppler, CW Doppler, Color Flow Doppler (CFD), power Doppler mode, B-Flow, Tissue Doppler and PW-Tissue Doppler, coded harmonic imaging (HI) with pulse inversion technology, Coded Excitation (CE), Focus and Frequency Composite (FFC), HD-Flow, Radiantflow, Slowflow HD, extended field of view (XTD), SRI II (Speckle Reduction Imaging), V-SRI, HDlive Silhouette, HDlive Studio, HDlive Flow, HDlive Flow Silhouette, CrossXBeam CRI (Compound Resolution Imaging), Automatic Tissue Optimization (ATO), Auto-TGC, auto optimization of PW spectral Doppler, Advanced STIC/eSTIC, SonoRenderlive, and Scan Assistant exam protocols.
      • The control panel is a "floating" (i.e., position-adjustable) design, with electronic up/down and side-to-side controls; the scanner must be powered on to use these controls.
