GE is by and large the industry-leader in women’s health ultrasound systems. Its Voluson line is a time-tested standard for OB/GYNs and women’s health physicians around the world! GE’s advanced 3D Imaging software, known as HDLive, is still trying to be replicated by their competition with little-to-no-success. Since ultrasound systems can be large financial investments, GE has different models and levels that typically correspond with pricing. GE Voluson’s Performance, Signature, and Expert lines allow customers to select the system that best fits their needs and their budget. Each of these is known respectively as the P-Series, S-Series, and E-Series. The P-Series is the lowest tier Voluson system line and is designed for environments that don’t need real-time 3D and have a strict budget. However, GE’s Voluson S-Series and E-Series’ are powerful systems built to deliver the highest-quality images in the shortest amount of time. But what are the big differences between the Voluson Signature Series and Voluson Expert Series?

Voluson Signature Series

The GE Voluson Signature Series combines superior imaging technology with a narrow footprint to streamline your imaging procedures at a price point to fit your budget. The Signature Series includes HDlive and has higher processing power than the Performance Series. However, it has less processing power and image-rendering capabilities of the Voluson Expert Series, which includes the GE Voluson E6, Voluson E8, and Voluson E10.

One of our most highly recommended S-Series systems is the GE Voluson S8 BT16 because it’s an affordable women’s health or OBGYN ultrasound system that produces high-quality images comparable to the Voluson E6 and E8. The S8 can include with:

  • Voluson Core Architecture
  • HDLive
  • Cardiac
  • CW
  • VCI (Advanced Volume Contrast Imaging) with OmniView
  • SonoRenderLive
  • Tricefy Inside Capabilities

The features listed make it the perfect 3D/4D system for any gynecologist or obstetrician looking to either add to or improve their current ultrasound imaging capabilities. For OBGYNs, we believe the GE Voluson S8 BT16 is the best women’s health or OBGYN ultrasound system for the budget-conscious physician.

Voluson Expert Series

The GE Voluson Expert Series is the premium Women’s Health ultrasound line from GE and the best way to acquire high-quality ultrasound images at unbelievable speeds. Making your job easier and your patients more satisfied.  The GE Voluson E8 BT16 is an excellent entry-point to the Voluson Expert family, delivering a feature-heavy system with the capabilities to fit the needs of your practice and your patient base.

We recommend the GE Voluson E8 as it comes with the most advanced technologies that GE Voluson ultrasound machines have to offer. The machine includes key technologies, such as HDLive, speckle reduction imaging, CrossXBeam, and HD-Zoom.

The GE Voluson E8 BT16 can include:

  • HDLive Silhouette
  • HDLive Flow
  • Advanced STIC
  • SonoBiometry
  • Anatomical M-Mode
  • Tricefy Inside Capabilities
  • Many more!

Also available from GE’s Voluson Expert family are the GE Voluson E6 and the GE Voluson E10 women’s health ultrasound systems. To see the differences between the GE Voluson E6, E8, and E10, be sure to check out our blog!

Which is best for you?

If you are looking for a faster system with more imaging capabilities but still priced affordably, look at the systems in the Voluson Signature Series. Most come standard with HDLive and all the imaging capabilities you’ll need, you just won’t get the processing power to render images as quickly. The Voluson S-Series will also be priced lower and will better fit your budget if you don’t have the resources to invest in a top-tier 3D/4D ultrasound system.

Alternatively, if you have the budget and are looking for the highest-performing women’s health ultrasound system on the market, the GE Voluson Expert-Series is the way to go. The Voluson E-Series will improve your work-flow and your imaging capabilities, leaving both you and your patients happier and more confident in the diagnosis.

As mentioned previously, we also have the Voluson Performance Series available if you are looking for the most affordable women’s health system available, which includes post-processing 3D/4D imaging capabilities and many more applications to fit your office’s needs.
