There’s really not another way to say it: this Voluson is very cool, and very amazing. Sure, we may be biased, but I (Brian Gill) have been a Voluson-lover since I first saw one in the year 2000. The user interface, the images, and the innovation were just amazing in 2000, and the innovation never stopped.
In early 2020, I performed a side-by-side comparison with the lineup of popular ultrasounds: Voluson E10, Voluson E8, Voluson E6, and Voluson S8, with Probo applications diva Barb Sheriff. We scanned a difficult-to-image woman who was 37 weeks pregnant, which is obviously a “difficult” image for 4D.
The comparison wasn’t close. The electronic Matrix transducer on the Voluson E10 provided significantly better 2D and 4D images. Significantly better. The electronic probe, combined with the improved processing power, provided for substantially better image quality, penetration, and resolution. Other systems provided a decent 2D image but unrecognizable 4D image. The E10 was the only system that could provide a decent 4D image in such a difficult imaging situation (we honestly thought it was hopeless until we saw the E10). Additionally, the 2D image was quite a bit better than what the other machines produced. We were surprised at how much better the 2D image was over the other Volusons. We didn’t expect this matrix probe to have such an impact.
Besides the great 4D imaging, the used Voluson E10 is also an outstanding machine for Women’s Health all-around. The processing power, ergonomics, and design provide an efficient and ergonomic machine that provides premium ultrasound images.
Did I mention I like the Volusons? This is, by far, the best Voluson to date and this will stand as an amazing Women’s Health ultrasound machine for many years to come.
