Ultrasound Machine Reviews
GE Logiq E9 Ultrasound Machine Review
Emma Graen, RDMS
GE Logiq E9 – This ultrasound machine not only is easy to use, but benefits the patients by means of providing clear and diagnostic images. I am able to identify clear pathology and prove color flow, and doppler in order to provide the most valuable information for the reading radiologist. I am beyond grateful that the hospital uses these specific GE machines and I couldn’t ask for anything better. Thank you so much!
Philips Affiniti 70 Ultrasound Machine Review
Kathleen Amorosa Hauben, RCS
Philips Affiniti 70 – The machine has a nice compact footprint. Very portable. Able to get into small places. Software is very customizable. Easy to clean. Scans well on difficult patients. Great penetration. Large monitor makes scanning easy. Probe is comfortable in hand. TEE probe is substantial. Great imaging quality. We purchased a second unit 1 year after the initial because we were so happy with the first.
GE Vivid E95 Ultrasound Machine Review
Katia Schurhammer, RDCS
As an echo tech for over 10 years I have used GE Ultrasound machines. I believe the first echo machine I use for about five years was called an E9, the last five years I’ve used an E95 and I can’t tell you how satisfied I am. I work about 26 days a month using this machine. It makes my job easier because I’m getting great quality images on technically difficult patients. In the future I hope to find a new job which has the availability of GE equipment. GE Vivid E95 has made my job convenient, efficient and my exams superior.
GE Voluson E6 Ultrasound Machine Review
Lisa Smith, RDMS
GE Voluson E6 – We have used GE ultrasound equipment for years at our facility. We currently have a Voluson E8 and E6 as well as 7 V-scans. The Voluson E8 is older but still provides excellent daily OB and gyn scanning advantages in grey scale imaging and Doppler modalities. The E6 provides even more advanced features that aid in speed and additional ease of use in scanning as well as exceptional 3D, 4D and HD Live imaging. Both machines are very user friendly but the E6 being newer provides better interfacing with connecting technology. The V-scans are an excellent addition to our practice adding the portable element to patient care and providing quick, convenient imaging with ease of use as well.
Siemens Acuson Aspen Ultrasound Machine Review
Shavanna Dudley, RDMS
Siemens Acuson Aspen – Best ultrasound machine I’ve used during my career. The ease of the machine is wonderful. The images are clear and precise. Controls on the machine are straightforward and easy to use. The size of the machine is also a plus!, due to the compact size.
