Extraordinary Image Quality
Crisp imaging. Focused workflow. Clear quantification. Vivid E9* makes short work of your routine 2D exams.
2D Image Quality
Designed with GE’s proprietary XDclear* technology, the M5Sc transducer delivers excellent endocardial definition and texture. Together with controls like UD Clarity and HD imaging, it helps provide crisp valves and borders across a wide range of patients.
Adult Echo Color Doppler: The XDclear transducer technology provides the color sensitivity needed for visualization of pulmonary vein inflow.
4D Image Quality
The Vivid E9 helps make 4D imaging every bit as easy as 2D imaging. It can bring enhancements to your entire 4D workflow process, thanks to fast, consistent reproducibility
4D Strain Quantification: Supports a new export format for ease of doing offline research.
Depth render map: Copper/Blue for enhanced shadowing, render continuity, render stability and depth perception.
2 Click Crop for TTE: Efficient way of obtaining any 4D view in live and/or replay.
FlexiZoom: No need for flipping or cropping, but flexibility to make further adjustments (rotation, translation) if desired.

Vivid E9 is all about making imaging simple, intuitive, and quantifiable to help make your work easy and efficient.
Automated Function Imaging (AFI)
This software tool assesses and quantifies left ventricular wall motion at rest. It calculates a large set of parameters to describe the function of the left ventricular walls. AFI specifically calculates peak systolic longitudinal strain (both segmental and global) and presents the results as parametric images.
As part of its healthymagination validation, a study has shown that AFI offers potential in predicting mortality in patients with suspected LV impairment compared to Ejection Fraction and Wall Motion1.
You can view the AFI healthymagination Fact Sheet and the AFI healthymagination Validation Summary.
1. Stanton et al, ‘Prediction of all-cause mortality from global longitudinal speckle strain: Comparison with ejection fraction and wall motion scoring’, Circulation: Cardiovascular Imaging, 2009; 2: 356-364
AFI: Bullseye as well as segmental traces showing reduced longitudinal strain, likely due to right coronary flow obstruction
4D Strain: As an extension to the 4D LV Mass tool, both global and regional strain values are calculated based upon a spatial speckle tracking algorithm. The end result is presented in a Strain Bull’s Eye plot accompanied by time-strain curves and cut planes for enhanced visual tracking assessment.
4D Auto LVQ: A mesh-based surface-tracking model, the 4D Auto LVQ quantification tool provides you with a graphical output of pure 4D volume data. Utilizing temporal data, it delivers reproducible results for automatic volumes and ejection fractions.
4D LV Mass: Using the above-mentioned mesh-based surface tracking model, by adding the epicardial border, an LV Mass and an LV Mass Index is derived from the same data set.
MV Assessment: The semi-automated MV Assessment tool now also available on Vivid E9 for TEE and TTE, provides the ability to include quantitative results for the mitral valve apparatus, into the patient exam.

With Scan Assist, you can quickly customize the system for your departmental protocols for CRT optimization, and let the system guide you to the next view, mode, and measurement.
4D Views: Used to automatically derive and visualize
a conventional apical long axis view, in 4D as well as in two orthogonal
SAX 4D stress views: Helping improve workflow for stress echo procedures,
4D Stress is an innovative first step in helping you integrate 4D into the
routine of your day-to-day clinical practice.
FlexiSlice: Easily switched from volumes to slices and back in live or replay mode.
FlexiZoom: See the mitral valve in 4D TEE with one push of a button.
2-Click Crop: Click and drag. See any 4D view in live mode or replay.
Multi-slice: Available in live or replay, helps the user extract conventional long axis and short axis views from 4D volume datasets.
