GE Healthcare has recently announced the global launch of its new generation of high-end portable compact cardiovascular ultrasounds, the Vivid iq.
The Vivid iq improves upon the company’s already available Vivid q portable scanner by being 10 percent lighter and thinner, weighing just under 10 lbs (4.5 kg).
It features up to one hour of battery life, a touchscreen, and a transportable cart. It is rugged and has a cleanable design, and to transport it you simply close the screen and lift it by the built-in handle.
The ultrasound machine can do 4D TEE and is purposed for every situation from the cath lab to the OR or ER.
