GE Logiq P5 Ultrasound Machine

GE

The GE Logiq P5 premium is an economical shared service ultrasound machine that is unique in it’s price range by offering deep support for all applications from Cardiac to Pediatric, from 4D Obstetrics to Surgical or Elastography with an astounding 29 compatible transducers spread across every possible application. If it can be done with ultrasound, the Logiq P5 can do it.

The Logiq P5 premium replaced the older Logiq 5 in 2006 and is currently in production as a BT11 revision. GE sells more of the Logiq P5 premium than any other model in production around the world and the fact that the Logiq P5 has been in production for a decade is proof of it’s reliability and popularity. The GE Logiq P5 is compact and has many premium features and ergonomic details that are typically only available on midrange units costing more. Because the Logiq P5 premium has been in production so long and has been so popular there are large quantities of replacement parts and transducers available on the market. This will make maintenance and support inexpensive and easily available for many years to come, far beyond all other economy priced ultrasound machines. The GE Logiq P5 price is between $10,000 and $30,000 dollars depending upon the condition, options, and the number and types of probes included. The similar Logiq P6 fits in the midrange price point and is visually very similar to the P5 but offers even more probe options and features.

Overview

Application training for the GE Logiq P5 premium

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 GE Logiq P5 premium from KPI ultrasound.

Logiq P5 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 P5 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.) KPI recommends one PM visit (preventative maintenance) every year.

Revisions

GE Logiq P5 BT11 to BT06 Revisions

GE first launched the Logiq P5 in 2006. That first version was designated as BT06. “BT” is an abbreviation of “Break Through” and the number designates the year in which this version was launched. So the GE Logiq P5 premium BT08 was launched in 2008 and was in production till the next version in 2009, the Logiq P5 premium BT09. BT08 and BT09 added CrossXBeam and SRI as standard features and gave access to the 11L linear and E8CS endocavitary probes

In 2011, the Logiq P5 premium BT11 version was released and this is the latest version and is still in production in 2016. BT11 added support for the newer 3Sp adult cardiac sector probe, the 5Sp pediatric cardiac probe, and the 4D8c 4D microconvex probe. New options for Elastography, TVI, Stress Echo, Auto IMT, and SRI-HD were added. The Logiq P5 has always been a reliable ultrasound system, but the BT11 revision is especially stable because of it’s long 5 year history without the need for any further revisions! All this while the Logiq P5 premium became the #1 best selling GE ultrasound unit in production.

Logiq P5 Premium vs. Logiq P5 Pro

The GE Logiq P5 was launched in 2006 and was not labeled as different “Pro” and “Expert” versions like the earlier Logiq 5 had been. There was an optional “premium package” offered with the Logiq P5 BT06 that included CrossXBeam and SRI. With the BT09 version that premium package became part of the standard features and the Logiq P5 was renamed the Logiq P5 premium. This continued in the BT11 version.

Logiq P5 vs. Logiq A5

The GE Logiq A5 is a version of the Logiq P5 with black and white imaging only, without Doppler. This version can be upgraded via hardware and software to a full Logiq P5 though it is costly and rarely done.

Quick comparison: Logiq P5 premium vs. Logiq P5 vs. Logiq A5

Logiq P5 Premium: monitor with articulating arm + 3 active probe ports + CrossXBeam & SRI

Logiq P5: tilt/swivel monitor + 2 active probe ports + (limited with basic options)

Logiq A5: Black & white tilt/swivel monitor + 2 active probe ports + (No Doppler)

Advanced Logiq P5 Probes

The Logiq P5 premium supports a far larger variety of transducer options than any other ultrasound machine in it’s price range. Typically economical ultrasound machines only offer 4-6 probe choices. The Logiq P5 premium has 29 compatible GE transducer choices! This includes three mechanical 4D probes.

The Logiq P5 premium is great for Pediatric scanning: The GE 4D8C 4D microconvex is unique in this price range and the GE 8C Neonatal microconvex has a tiny 11mm scan head ! Pediatric cardiologists will appreciate 2 pediatric sector probe options, the GE 7S and GE 5Sp.

The Logiq P5 premium offers unusually broad choices for Urologists as well with two biplane endocavitary probe options ; the GE BE9CS and GE ERB. Biplane probes are able to scan in the X and Y axis without moving the probe.

The GE Logiq P5 has three compatible intraoperative linear probes that are super compact for use where a typical linear probe would not fit.

Cardiologists will appreciate the 5 sector probes and two non-imaging pencil probes used for listening to the heart and graphing the sound.

Popular GE Logiq P5 Transducers

The GE 4C convex is a second-generation transducer for the Logiq P5 that offers the best penetration and widest scanning field at a good price. The GE 11L linear transducer offers a high frequency that makes it good at MSK imaging while still functioning within the needed range for vascular work. The GE E8C is the most popular and least expensive endocavitary probe for the Logiq P5. The GE 3Sp adult cardiac probe offers a wide scanning range for a variety of patient types at an affordable price.

GE Logiq P5 Premium Optional Technology Definitions

Coded Contrast Imaging: This feature enhances the view of the Fallopian tubes vs. other surrounding tissue on the Logiq P5.

Auto IMT: This provides an automated measurement of the intimae media thickness of the common carotid artery.

Elastography: An imaging mode optional on the GE Logiq P5 premium for the visualization of the stiffness of tissue done by assigning color values over B-mode. This makes it much easier to detect tumors and direct biopsies and interventional surgery. The Logiq P5 uses strain based elastography.

TVI: Tissue Velocity Imaging is an advanced option on the Logiq P5 used for quantitative analysis of the cardiac function providing views of the overall anatomy, regional movement and velocity data.

GE Logiq P5 Applications

Applications or Apps are the types of exams or studies that an ultrasound machine can do. More than this if an ultrasound machine supports a specific application it will have calculations, measurement and reporting software included to support those apps and make them useful in a clinical environment.

The GE Logiq P5 premium offers a wider selection of apps than any other ultrasound machine at this price point. The Logiq P5 also offers a huge variety of compatible transducers that not only support each of these apps but also give users multiple choices.
