GE Voluson E8 Review:

The GE Voluson E8 is most impressive when you are viewing it’s (HD live) high resolution 4D images. HD live is GE’s term for advanced 4D imaging in high definition. The resolution and detail of HD live versus traditional 4D is breathtaking. Think of when you first switched from a regular TV to an HD TV. Since GE launched HD live in 2012 several other manufacturers have created their own versions of HD 4D, but the Voluson E8 HD live is still the most popular. The detail, shading options, and fast frame rates are what keep GE in the lead for 4D. This extra 4D resolution gives Obstetricians a better volume assessment of the first trimester anatomy and also vascular structures. The resultant 4D images and movies can be exported in a variety of formats.
