GE Vivid T8 Review:

The architecture of GE vivid T8 incorporates GE’s best seller Vivid S6 / Vivid S5 and new Logiq F sereis. Its S/W features developed and integrated based on Vivid S6/S5, but its H/W is prepared based on a new GE economic flatform, Logiq F series. GE Vivid T8 integrated almost all Vivid S6’s in-depth cardiovascular options such as Tissue Synchromization Imagin, Automated Function Imaging(AFI), Auto EF, Strain & Strain Rate Imaging, LVO Contrast, Smart Stress, Z scores for Pediatric cardiac, Q-Analysis and adult TEE. More cardiac sector and TEE options for pediatric and neonate echocardiography requires to be indentical with Vivid S6. GE Vivid T8 can be used for a general imaging application because except 3D/4D, general features of GE Vivid T8 are identical to GE Logiq F8. Scan Assistant of GE Vivid T8, not in Vivid S6, can improve the user’s workflow by dramatically decreasing key strokes.

GE Vivid T8 FAQs:

Auto Optimization is a one-touch image optimization function that a user to optimize the image based on the actual B-mode image or Pulse wave Doppler data. The function works based on preset levels (Low, Medium, and High) and allows user to pick a preference for the contrast enhancement in the resulting image. Low does the least amount of contrast enhancement, high does the most. Auto Optimization is available in single or multi image, on live, frozen or CINE images (in B-Mode only), while in zoom, and in Spectral Doppler. Auto Optimization in PW Doppler Mode optimizes the spectral data. Auto adjusts the Velocity Scale (live imaging only), baseline shift, dynamic range, and invert (if preset). Upon deactivation, the spectrum is still optimized.


CrossBeam (Spatial Compounding Imaging) obtains real time sonographic information from several different angles of insonation and combines them to produce a single image. CrossBeam helps reducing speckle artifacts, enhancing mass margin delineation, and improving anatomical details.


SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) reduces speckle noise in images affects edges and fine details which limit the contrast resolution and make diagnostic more difficult.


Raw Data is a software tool that enables image processing, quick data re-acquisition, and image analysis with same resolution and same frame rates of original images. Raw Data helps shorten exam duration, improves clinical work flow by post-processing, and reduces a time to put probe on a patient.


Auto IMT automates measurement of intima-media thickness of vessel. Auto IMT helps keep tracking atherosclerosis diseases from the early stage as it is developed.


Scan Assistant is the customable scanning assistant tool that enables a user to save scanning protocols of each lab that help decrease key stokes up to 60~70% of ordinary operation. With fewer user’s action, an exam can be complete because a user does not need to move all around console and requires only one button push at most of exam.


TSI (Tissue Synchronization Imaging) is a parametric imaging tool derived from tissue Doppler imaging, which portrays regional asynchrony on 2D echocardiographic pictures by transforming the timing of regional peak velocity during the ejection phase into color codes and overlying the moving myocardium. This allows immediate visual identification of a regional delay in systole while a quick quantitative measurement of regional delay can be taken.


Automated Function Imaging (AFI) is a decision support tool for regional and global assessment of the LV systolic function. AFI is a tool derived from 2D Strain, which calculates the myocardial tissue deformation based on feature tracking on 2D grey scale loops.


Auto EF is the function that automatically measure LV ejection fraction. Along with the Automated Function Imaging (AFI) feature, Auto EF maximizes time efficiency by the reproducible quantitative output that increases physician’s diagnostic confidence.


Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is myocardial Doppler Imaging with color overlay on tissue image available on the sector probes. Tissue color overlay can be removed to show just the 2D image, still retaining the tissue velocity information. Tissue Velocity Imaging (TVI) is an ultrasound based technique used for quantitative analysis of the cardiac function and has earlier been evaluated according to myocardial velocities. The technique is the same as for Doppler echocardiography, measuring flow velocities. Tissue signals however, have higher amplitude and lower velocities, and the signals are extracted by using different filter and gain settings.
