Image Quality

Built on the powerful Voluson E-Series platform, the Voluson E6 system just keeps getting better, as next generationVolume ultrasound technologies continue to migrate through the Voluson family.

Next-generation volume ultrasound 

Experience high standards in volume imaging, enabling you to visualize anatomical information with higher clarity and analyze views from virtually any plane.

New Dynamic Rendering Engine – It’s 3D rendering at the speed your busy practice demands. The Voluson platform, Dynamic Rendering Engine and innovative transducers work together to give you extraordinary image quality and seamless operation. The ability to acquire images in mere seconds at the touch

Advanced VCI (Volume Contrast Imaging) with OmniView – Diagnostic confidence in sonography requires the ability to differentiate irregular shapes with precision. This tool helps improve contrast resolution and visualization of the rendered anatomy in any plane. 

Innovations in transducer technology

Help enhance your views and improve image quality with our wide range of 2D and 3D Voluson transducers, optimized for OB/GYN applications and designed for easy imaging:

New RAB6-D ultra-light volume transducer – User fatigue can be athing of the past with this next generation volume transducer that is 40% lighter than the previous version. Its ergonomic design provides outstanding image quality in 2D and 3D/4D, features a pinless connector and sits comfortably in the operator’s hand.   

New C4-8-D transducer – The high frequency and small footprint of this transducer helps provide exceptional high-resolution obstetrical images during each trimester.

C1-5-D abdominal 2D transducer – Image confidently with deep penetration even when scanning larger patients.

Innovations in image 2D image quality

Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI) for improved visualization of normal and abnormal anatomy contrast resolution that suppresses speckle artifact while maintaining true tissue architecture.

CrossXBeamCRI* for enhanced tissue interfaces and border differentiation with an innovative, real-time spatial compounding acquisition and processing.

HD-Flow* uses a bi-directional Doppler feature to help achieve a more sensitive vascular study and reduce overwriting.

Ease of Use and Productivity

Innovations in image automation:

Sonography-based Nuchal Translucency (SonoNT) this automation tool can help you efficiently perform non-invasive ultrasound examinations to combine with other risk assessment tools for trisomy 21. SonoNT can help you achieve results efficiently to support clinical decision-making.

Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Display heart (SonoVCAD* heart) assists in generating standard views of a fetal heart from a four-chamber view-and complies with the recommended standard examination of the fetal heart. This tool provides six recommended views of the fetal heart left outflow tract, right outflow tract, venous connection, ductal arch, stomach and aortic arch.

Sonography-based Automated Volume Count follicle (SonoAVC* follicle) is an innovative software program designed to automatically calculate the number and volume of hypoechoic structures from a 3D ovarian volume.

SonoVCADlabor (Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Displaylabor) Helps you evaluate second-stage labor progression, and automatically documents the labor procedure with objective ultrasound data.

SonoRender Start is an auto-optimization tool helps you achieve faster access to surface structure rendering while you are performing 3D examinations.

Innovations in quality assurance tools

E-Series systems have a customizable Scan Assistant tool that can help you improve quality assurance, increase exam consistency and boost productivity. Scan assistant can help you:

  • Avoid missed exam steps with user-created checklists for different exam types.
  • Reduce annotation and measurement time with customizable sub-menus.
  • Improve quality assurance with comprehensive exam steps and completion tracking.
  • Increase consistency of exam content, from the single-user to entire department staff, with exam parameters that you define.

4D View

GE’s PC software, called 4D View, allows you to create an offline workstation to help optimize, manipulate and analyze your Volume Ultrasound data, freeing your ultrasound machine to image more patients. For more information please visit


In designing the Voluson E6, we were committed to keeping the people who use it our priority. We envisioned a system that would be enjoyable to use on a daily basis. One that was intuitive, with customizable features to help increase user comfort level. So we built an ergonomic system to help reduce fatigue, strain and repetitious actions. And just as important, a user-friendly system that allows you to focus more on the patient while scanning.  Voluson E6 Expert eronomic features include:

  • Articulating arm
  • Adjustable console
  • Easy transport
  • Intuitive user interface
  • 19” high-resolution, flat screen monitor
