Vivid S70N - Unique Beamformer Platform Software


Pixel Precision Enables Confident Diagnoses

A new generation of cSound scanners enable extraordinary processing capacity, in which the RF-data from all probe-to-system channels from an entire frame are received and temporarily stored in the Local Big Data Channel Memory, prior to reconstruction of the image. This then allows for the application of a variety of advanced Beamformer algorithms during image reconstruction, including True Confocal, which results in advanced image quality. Superior images empower you to diagnose with complete confidence, even with difficult to scan patients.

Delivering Even the Difficult Scans

Transthoracic Echocardiograms (TTE) may be inconclusive in 10-15% of cases1 due to the increasing number of difficult to scan patients, which leads to costly additional testing and frustration for the patient. This is especially true for patients with lung disease, obesity, or those who are in critical condition. For these patients, traditional hardware-based technology yields inconclusive results when supported by a limited set of information.

Reduce Time and Cost by Using Less Contrast

An evaluation of the clinical value and resource utilization impact of the system was completed at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York2. The study demonstrated that the utilization of cSound beamforming technology helped reduce the use of contrast agent, which can be avoided in 1 of 5 patients, a relative reduction of 49%.
This reduction in the use of contrast agent can improve workflow efficiency, help save exam time, reduce related cost and potentially the need for additional invasive follow up tests on a patient.

Combine with our Probes for Total Confidence

When cSound Beamformer technology is used together with our ultra-high element density XDclear™ probes (such as the 4Vc-D), the result is exceptional 2D image quality that enables you to quickly and easily acquire diagnostic images with confidence, and typically without contrast.

Vivid S70 - Exceptional Software Beamformer Platform


Compared to many conventional ultrasound systems, the system captures and optimizes more data and enables True Confocal Imaging for the best possible image quality, along with many useful quantification tools and workflow enhancements.

  • There are many ways to improve diagnostics with Vivid S70 and cSound:
    • Detailed views of cardiac structure to improve communication between echocardiologists and interventionalists
    • Increased wall definition, image uniformity and penetration performance

The diverse body types and complexity of medical issues too often result in suboptimal examinations with conventional ultrasound systems, which can compromise the efficiency of coordinated patient care. GE has taken on this challenge and reached a new level of cardiovascular ultrasound imaging with its new cSound imaging platform.
