Overview

Vivid cardiac.
Shared services.
Paired for excellent performance.

In the Vivid* T8, we’ve taken the established cardiac imaging capabilities of GE Vivid systems, and blended them with exceptional shared services performance of the LOGIQ* systems.

The result: some of the best features of both systems combined into one value hybrid cardiovascular ultrasound system – rugged, reliable, robust, and rich with features, yet still affordable and easy to use.

Cardiac IQ & Functionality

Leverage Vivid cardiac IQ and functionality.

A feature-rich system with legacy Vivid software, the Vivid* T8 uses an array of advanced quantitative tools to help enhance its cardiac imaging capabilities.

Tissue Velocity Imaging 


Captures dynamic information from moving heart tissue for quantifiable measurement of left ventricular function.

SmartStress


Automatically adjusts settings to help streamline workflow, increase reproducibility, and enhance diagnostic confidence.

Automated Function Imaging


Assesses and quantifies left ventricular wall motion at rest, and calculates parameters to describe the function of the left ventricular walls. Nearly 400 papers have been published on AFI, which has received GE Healthcare’s healthymagination validation for its proven reliability and reproducibility.

Transesophageal Echocardiography


Guide interventional procedures with confidence. Vivid T8 TEE transducer 6Tc-RS is compatible with Vivid S6, Vivid S5, Vivid i/q and with Vivid E9 via an adapter.


Option

 

 
 
 

 

AutoEF


Automatically assesses left ventricular ejection fraction using an automated, speckle-tracking ROI tool.

Tissue Tracking/Tissue Synchronization Imaging


Provides additional image enhancement for assessing delayed cardiac wall motion.

Strain/Strain Rate Imaging


Helps enhance visual and quantitative recognition of dysfunctioning myocardial segments, and can help in evaluating regional systolic function in ischemic heart disease.

Shared Service

Share services freely.

Delivering exceptional shared service image quality, the flexible Vivid* T8 gives you options that let you customize the system to your facility’s shared service needs.

Auto IMT


Provides automatic edge detection for intima-media thickness and auto-completes required measurements.
 

Virtual Convex


Extends the field of view when using linear transducers.
 

LOGIQview


Increases the field of view to image large organs that typically can’t be seen in a single image.


Option

 

 
 
 

 

B-Flow 


Provides advanced spatial and temporal resolution to help assess blood flow and vessel wall structure without the limitations of Doppler.

Blood Flow Imaging


Provides enhanced visualization of blood flow dynamics using a signal-processing algorithm for visualizing blood flow data.

Convenience

Scan with convenience and reliability.

The Vivid* T8 is designed to be easy to operate and transport in many environments. Its intuitive user interface is a true Vivid console, with Vivid applications, features, workflow, and reliability, simplified for ease of use.

Convenient control layout

The touch screen, rotary dials, and patient management buttons are conveniently located, and all mode buttons are grouped together near the trackball.

Ready-to-go mobility

Weighing just 128 pounds, with durable casters and push handles front and back, the Vivid T8 is easy to push and roll on tiled or carpeted floors.

Ample transducer capacity

The Vivid T8 has four RS transducer ports and four standard transducer holders, plus two optional ones.

Reliability

Take rugged reliability to challenging conditions.

In developing the Vivid* T8, reliability was our number one priority. We designed and rigorously tested the system for reliability even in very harsh, demanding environments. It delivers a hardy robustness that stands up to the challenges of even the busiest ultrasound imaging practices. We performed a set of challenging tests on the system—and the Vivid T8 stood strong through every test.

Rugged construction for durable performance


The Vivid T8 was subjected to 20 hours of extreme vibration, and shock tested with 1,000 strikes at a force of 10 G’s.
 

Broad thermal range


Rigorous thermal testing subjected the Vivid T8 to both intense heat and cold for a week each, and then to four weeks of cycling back and forth between two temperature extremes.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Excellent dust protection


During an eight-hour dust protection test, the Vivid T8 performed smoothly even with both fans clogged with extreme amounts of dust.

Low use error

Even after numerous normal power-on/off cycles, repeated forced power-off cycles, and dozens of transducer removals and insertions, the Vivid T8’s use error was low.
