Image Quality

The Voluson E8 Expert is packed full of innovations to help you see more clearly, work more efficiently and diagnose with more confidence. Voluson ultrasound continues to promote innovation in Volume ultrasound technologies.

New Second Generation Dynamic Rendering Engine

The enhanced Dynamic Rendering Engine and innovative transducers will help provide you extraordinary image quality and seamless operation. 

HDlive – This second-generation rendering tool provides exceptional anatomical realism and helps increase depth perception. This imaging capability can help you achieve a deeper understanding of relational anatomy, enrich patient communication and help enhance diagnostic confidence. Learn more about HDlive.

Volume SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) (V-SRI) – This enhancement provides a new level of speckle reduction utilizing volume/voxels versus traditional single slice imaging. It helps improve 3D/4D quality in multi-planar studies and rendered mode, and also provides an enhanced smoothing effect on rendered images which helps improve diagnostic confidence.

Innovations in image quality

Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI) suppresses speckle artifact while maintaining true tissue architecture

CrossXBeamCRI TM enhances tissue and border differentiation

HD-FlowTM helps achieve a more sensitive vascular study and reduces overwriting

Advanced Volume Contrast Imaging (VCI) with OmniView helps improve your contrast resolution and visualization of the rendered anatomy with clarity in any image plane, even when viewing irregularly shaped structures

Innovations in transducer technology

New RAB6-D ultra-light volume transducer – User fatigue can be a thing 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 wideband C4-8-D transducer – The high frequency and small footprint of this transducer helps provide exceptional high-resolution obstetrical images during each trimester. 

High resolution 4D endovaginal transducer (RIC6-12D) helps detect the finest details earlier in the first trimester and in gynecology exams 

Wide sector technology from curved array transducers offers a larger field of view, enabling more anatomical information to be displayed 

Matrix array transducers provide increased spatial resolution for better visualization 

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

RM6C next-generation matrix convex transducer for high-resolution volume imaging

Ease of Use & Productivity

Voluson E8 clinician and patient.

Voluson E8 Expert has been designed with user productivity in mind, and  workflow tools to help increase efficiency and ease of use. 

Innovations in image automation  

Sonography-based Nuchal Translucency (SonoNT)(SonoNT) brings automation to NT measurement, helping to reduce inter-and-intra observer variability that comes with manual measurements. SonoNT can help clincians achieve reliable, reproducible results to support their clinical decision-making.

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

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

Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Display heart (SonoVCADTM heart) is an innovative tool that assists in generating standard views, including the Aortic Arch algorithm, of a fetal heart from a four-chamber view and complies with the recommended standard examination of the fetal heart.  

SonoAVCgeneral helps you visualize and measure hypoechoic structures 

Innovations in quality assurance tools

E-Series systems have a customizable Scan Assistant tool that gives you the potential to improve quality assurance, increase exam consistency and boost productivity by helping to:  

Reduce 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 

Innovations in image analysis

Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation (STIC) captures a full fetal heart cycle beating in real time, and the volume can be saved for offline analysis 

Tomographic Ultrasound Imaging (TUI) helps make analysis and documentation of dynamic studies easier with a simultaneous view of multiple parallel slices of a volume data set 

Voluson E8 has helped transform the structural and functional analysis of the fetal heart with a new dedicated suite of advanced fetal echo imaging technologies that include: 

Advanced STIC (Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation) with STIC M-Mode:  Increased frame rate can result in enhanced fetal heart rate detection 

Advanced STIC plus B-Flow: Angiographic-like display for visualization of the entire cardiovascular system can result in a higher frame rate and enhanced spatial resolution 

Anatomical M-Mode: Arrhythmia assessment and cardiac measurements, performed online or offline

4D View

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


In designing the Voluson E8, 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 systemto 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 E8 Expert eronomic features include: 

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