As pregnancies grow increasingly complex, clinicians are demanding improvements in technology that allow for greater confidence at the point of care. Shrinking workforces are straining healthcare systems around the world, and without intensive training to operate complex medical imaging technology, clinicians are therefore demanding smart, intuitive systems that reduce the burden on individual users. Now an advanced ultrasound system utilizes graphic-based beam former technology, which produces higher quality images and offers greater flexibility in imaging functions. Cutting-edge tools powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) ensure greater consistency in exams and decreased number of tasks. Customizable touch panels, color and lighting options provide for a revolutionary user experience.

GE Healthcare (Chicago, IL, USA) has unveiled its most advanced ultrasound yet, the next-generation Voluson Expert 22. The Voluson Expert 22’s Lyric Architecture unlocks new imaging and processing power to achieve higher resolution, detailed images—and increased independence from body habitus and other difficult scanning conditions. The Lyric Architecture generates new levels of penetration, resolution, and frame rates to reveal fine anatomy in 2D/3D/4D with ease, and delivers uniformity throughout the image with increased spatial and contrast resolution.

Voluson’s modern user interface is simple and seamless, and the 23.8 inch high-definition ultrasound (HDU) display offers 3 image sizes including unique full screen images that allows clinicians to work comfortably and see finer details with ease. Clinicians can personalize the user interface according to their unique preferences and Respond probe activation automatically initializes the probes and presets when removed from the probe holder.

AI-powered tools include SonoLyst, which helps identify fetal anatomy seen on standard views while enhancing efficiency by up to 65%* by adding annotations and measurements; SonoPelvicFloor, which simplifies the exam process by 80% automating plane alignment and measurements while offering workflow guidance to improve efficiency while eliminating uncertainty; SonoCNS which supports consistent measurements and help drive workflow efficiency and reduce exam time by 81% by helping align and display recommended views and measurements of the fetal brain from a 3D Volume.

“Technology continues to move obstetrics and gynecology forward, but there is a delicate balance between using technology to enhance medical care and the human role in medicine” said, Gerald Seifriedsberger, General Manager- Women’s Health. “We are incredibly proud to build on our legacy of innovation in women’s health with the introduction of the Voluson Expert 22, and deliver advanced ultrasound imaging at the point of care that allows for more shared decision-making between clinician and patient.”
