The GE Voluson E8 Ultrasound is a premium women’s health 4D ultrasound machine. GE’s breakthrough technology for the Voluson E8 was HDlive, a revision with high-resolution 4D imaging introduced in 2012 and a standard feature with the Voluson E8 BT12 and newer revisions. The Voluson E8 was considered GE’s top-of-the-line ultrasound system until the Voluson E10 was released in 2014. The Voluson E8 is also considered as one of the best-selling 4D ultrasound machines in the world even though it is in a higher price range than some of its competitors.

GE Voluson E8 Ultrasound Review

The GE Voluson E8 has high-quality images in all settings, but the system is most impressive when you are viewing its HDlive high-resolution 4D images. HDlive is GE’s advanced 4D imaging in high definition. The resolution and detail of HDlive versus traditional 4D images are breathtaking and can improve the ultrasound’s efficiency in clinical applications. The difference can be compared to switching from an analog TV to an HD TV. Since GE launched HDlive in 2012, several other manufacturers have created their own versions of HD 4D imagery. However, the HDlive featured on the Voluson E8 is still the most popular. The detail, shading options, and fast frame rates of the Voluson E8 keep this ultrasound at the top of the pack for 4D ultrasounds. The enhanced 4D resolution on the Voluson E8 also enables obstetricians to have a better volume assessment of the first-trimester anatomy as well as vascular structures. The 4D images and movies generated by the Voluson E8 can also be exported in a variety of formats, making this one of the highest quality and most effective ultrasound systems for women’s health applications.
