The Vivid* E9 is GE Healthcare’s first cardiovascular ultrasound system built specifically for 4D imaging — from ergonomics and image acquisition to data management and archiving. Vivid E9 provides the tools to help streamline your workflow, enhance productivity, and provide the data you need for confident diagnoses. Our Vivid E9 also provides exceptional 2D imaging with equal power, precision, and agility.

Raw Data Format

The GE Vivid product line has always acquired and stored its data in a specific raw data format, which enables onboard as well as after the fact post processing capabilities. This flexible and innovative format and storage of pre scan converted data has enabled development of utilities with high clinical value.

This has resulted in an enhanced ability to perform additional advanced algorithms for all of the steps in the data processing chain, culminating in the release of the Vivid E9 with XDclear*.

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

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

Extraordinary Quantification

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.

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 Views: Used to automatically derive and visualize a conventional apical long axis view, in 4D as well as in two orthogonal slices.
