Overview

As easy as 1-2-3D

Hard working ultrasound capabilities – like 2D, Doppler, and 3D imaging –are just a keystroke away with a Voluson P8 system. Voluson automation advances enable busy practices to maintain high quality while reducing the time needed to conduct, analyze, and report on exams:

  • Intuitive, easy to use keyboard – Helps achieve uninterrupted scanning
  • Auto Optimization for 2D and Doppler – Helps enhance contrast resolution at the touch of a button
  • Auto focus for 2D – Provides automated positioning of the focal zone and allows the user to concentrate on scanning
  • Raw data – Conducts a virtual rescan of the patient post-exam to help increase productivity and improve diagnostic confidence
  • SonoRender Start for 3D – Helps enhance volume rendering with a keystroke
  • Reporting and archiving tools – Enables easy creation of a structured report from a selection of customizable templates, including 1st trimester,2nd/3rd trimester, and gynecologyexams. You can also export a report, including charts and images, in PDF format at the touch of a button

Image quality

Image quality you can rely on

Voluson technology has established a high standard for 2D and 3D imaging – the P8 continues the tradition. You can count on exceptional images in all applications, from routine OB evaluations and gynecological studies to cardiac, abdominal, vascular, and small parts scanning. Innovative GE tools include:

  • SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) – Helps improve visualization and contrast resolution by reducing intrinsic artifacts
  • HD-Zoom – Helps users localize regions of interest for closer study
  • CrossXBeamCRI* – Helps enhance tissue interfaces and border differentiation
  • Wide range of 2D and 3D probes are available for use in most applications:
Wide sector for endocavitary probes 
Enables more anatomical information to be displayed in a single image versus          the standard field of view.

Ergonomics

A system designed for ease of use and comfort

  • 15-inch, flat-screen LCD monitor moves independently of the console
  • Simplified keyboard enables exams to be completed with fewer keystrokes and rotates to adjust to the user
  • Sleek, lightweight console with a small footprint to help optimize use of small spaces
  • Wireless connectivity enables efficient transmission of reports and images
  • Transducer holder protects delicate probes while positioning them for user convenience
  • Integrated peripherals including a DVR module help expand functionality
