GE Logiq E9 Ultrasound Machine

GE

The GE Logiq E9, is a premium shared service ultrasound machine capable of top of the line women’s health and 4D imaging along with top notch imaging for radiology, cardiac and vascular applications. GE’s breakthrough technology is the Logiq E9 with XDclear, which uses advanced transducers with a single crystal, acoustic amplification and a cooling technology to improve image quality especially at deeper penetration when image quality typically fades.

Overview

Application training for the GE Logiq E9 with XDclear:

KPI’s on-staff sonographer can provide onsite applications training or remote training via video conference at a set price plus travel costs. A pre-recorded video training course is included in the sale, lease or rental of the Logiq E9 from KPI ultrasound.

Logiq E9 Service options:

Free technical support is available from KPI during installation and over the course of the standard limited warranty. Technical support is available after the warranty period at an hourly cost per issue.

GE Logiq E9 Maintenance:

KPI recommends the use of a surGE protector along with a dedicated power outlet. Probes should be disinfected after every use with a disinfectant wipe proven not to damaGE the lens (KPI recommends SonoWipes for this.) One PM visit (preventative maintenance) every year.

Revisions

GE Logiq E9 BT09 to BT15 revisions:

GE first launched the Logiq E9 in 2009. That first version was designated as BT09. “BT” is an abbreviation of “Break Through” and the number designates the year in which this version was launched. So the GE Logiq E9 BT09 was launched in 2009 and was in production till the next version in 2010, the Logiq E9 premium BT10. The BT versions are also referred to as a Rev. or revision. The BT09 is Rev 1, BT10 is Rev 2, and so on. Each version fixed bugs in the Logiq E9, improved hardware or software and gave access to new transducers.

The Logiq E9 BT10 is upgradable to BT11. The Logiq E9 BT11 added strain-based elastography, and Elasto QA as an option. BT13 added XDClear as an option along with access to the new C1-6D and C2-9D convex transducers that were made specifically with the new XDClear technology. The Logiq E9 BT13 is also based on a new BEP (back end processor) to improve performance. BT14 again upgraded the BEP and added optional Shear Wave Elastography.

Advanced Logiq E9 probes: 4D and TEE

The Logiq E9 BT13 supports 23 different transducers including the [ 2 – 8 MHz ] 6Tc TEE probe for cardiac applications (though without 4D) and a full range of six volume transducers including the rare [ 3 – 10 MHz ] RNA5-9-D 4d microconvex transducer, and the equally rare [ 6 – 18 MHz ] RSP6-16-D 4d linear transducer. Very few ultrasound machines besides the Logiq E9 support all these probes in one unit. This is a fantastic cost savings for a multi-application clinic or radiology department that can purchase one unit that does the same work as 2 or 3 others. The [ 4 – 15 MHz ] L8-18i-D intraoperative linear is perfect for scanning in the small area within a surgical incision.

Popular GE Logiq E9 transducers:

The [ 1 – 6 MHz ] C1-5-D convex is the most popular convex transducer for the Logiq E9 in general applications because of its versatility and affordable price. The [ 3 – 11 MHz ] 11L-D linear transducer is likewise versatile and able to handle peripheral vascular, abdominal, small parts and MSK imaging. The [ 3 – 10 MHz ] IC5-9-D is the most popular intracavitary transducer for the Logiq E9 balancing affordability with good OB/GYN and Urology imaging.

GE Logiq E9 optional technology definitions:

LOGIQView: A type of panoramic imaging on the Logiq E9 that combines images over an extended length of anatomy, improving visualization and giving greater clinical information.

VOCAL II: Volume Calculation on the Logiq E9 that helps evaluate irregular structures by automatically calculating volumes based on a tracing of a region of interest.

Beta View: This allows for the adjustment of the Volume O-Axis position of 3D probes in 2D mode. The green line in the displayed symbol indicates the position ofthe acoustic block. + and – defines the corresponding sweep direction on the Touchscreen.

Volume Navigation: A Logiq E9 technology that combines volume ultrasound with an advanced navigation to overlay real-time ultrasound images with saved CT, MR, PET or other ultrasound images for comparison. It can also be used to do needle guidance, and to visually track your position during an exam and mark points of interest.

Scan Assistant: Automated step by step help for those new to scanning on the Logiq E9.

Compare Assistant: View a patient’s prior and current studies side-by-side during an exam.

OB Measure Assistant: Automatic measurements on the Logiq E9 that can be easily edited or accepted in a click.

Elasto QA Quantitative Analysis (Logiq E9 BT14 option): Elastography in quantitative data as a value to determine the stiffness and elasticity of tissue.

Shear Wave Elastography (Logiq E9 BT14 option) :With the Shear Wave option, the scanner creates distortion by generating shear waves in tissue using a diagnostic ultrasound transducer. Shear waves “push” the tissue at a low frequency in either a single burst of high amplitude, long duration pulses or a series of short pulses. Shear Wave Elastography is superior to the earlier Strain-based Elastography.

Elastography:Elastography shows the spatial distribution of tissue elasticity properties in a region of interest by estimating the strain before and after tissue distortion caused by external or internal forces. The strain estimation is filtered and scaled to provide a smooth presentation when displayed. With Elastography active, the image will show a color map/bar indicating the level of elasticity detected by the system. The Elastography image is achieved by pulsating the probe manually while you are scanning the anatomy of interest.

TVI: Tissue Velocity Imaging on the Logiq E9 measures myocardial velocities longitudinally, evaluating systolic and diastolic function.
