GE’s Voluson line is arguably the most popular women’s health ultrasound system line on the market. The current GE Voluson Signature-Series is no different. With the updated revisions of the BT16 and newer Voluson S6, S8, and S10 ultrasound systems, you can expect the world-class imaging and high speeds you would typically find on the Expert-Series but at a fraction of the cost and a smaller footprint! And to the naked eye, you wouldn’t be able to tell much of a difference between these systems from the outside, aside from a touchscreen. Therefore, how do you know which GE Voluson Signature-Series system is for you? What are the main differences between the S6, S8, and S10? And, how do you choose between the three?


The GE Voluson S6 BT16 is your entry-level system in GE’s Voluson Signature-Series line. It’s a great system if you want a Women’s health system with 3D/4D imaging at a low-budget price point. You’ll love the ergonomic design and small footprint, which is shared by each system in the Signature-Series line.  The most significant difference you’ll notice between the Voluson S6 and its counterparts, other than the price, is that the S6 is a feature-reduced version that only comes with the standard package. It will still deliver a superior image, but you’ll miss some of the bells and whistles like:

  • HDLive
  • SonoVCAD heart
  • Contrast
  • 4 Active Probe Ports (You can pay to activate the 4th probe port)
  • 128-Channel Beamformer

However, you will still get the standard applications that the Voluson is known for like:

  • HDLive Pro (Post-Processing 4D Imaging)
  • Standard STIC
  • B-Flow
  • Scan Assistant
  • SonoNT
  • Newer, Lighter Transvaginal Probe – GE RIC5-9A-RS
  • Many more!

As mentioned previously, the S6 is the entry-level system, whereas the GE Voluson S8 is the standard for women’s health ultrasound and arguably the most popular women’s health system on the market.

GE’s Voluson S8 BT16 is the flagship OB/GYN ultrasound system that GE offers. It’s arguably the most popular Women’s Health ultrasound system on the market. It has the same workflow, applications, and overall appearance as the S6 BT16, but has more processing power. Which allows you to render images quicker. It also has a few more bells and whistles including:

  • True HDLive
  • Contrast
  • 128-Channel Beamformer
  • Newer, Lighter 3D/4D Volume Probe – GE RAB6-RS

It’s the standard in women’s health ultrasound systems, and no other manufacturer has been able to come close to reproducing the advanced HDLive 3D/4D imaging solution. It has everything any women’s health physician would need for performing women’s health exams. However, unlike the Voluson S10, it’s standard applications are only specific to Women’s Health and you don’t get the ergonomic touch screen control panel.

The GE Voluson S10 is the Premium Signature-Series Women’s Health ultrasound system from GE. This ultrasound system allows you to scan your patients and acquire data faster than any other Signature-Series system.  Like the S8, the S10 comes standard with the flagship Voluson applications like:

  • True HDLive
  • Contrast
  • 128-Channel Beamformer
  • Newer, Lighter 3D/4D Volume Probe – GE RAB6-RS

However, the S10 BT16 comes with even more features to help any physician perform exams that go beyond strictly Women’s Health applications, like:

  • Tricefy Inside
  • 4 Standard Active Probe Ports
  • 10.1 Inch Touch Panel
