Let me start by saying, the refurbished GE Voluson e8 is an incredible ultrasound machine. It is the one of the few elite 4D obstetric ultrasound machines for women’s health on the market. GE set the bar high with the E8.
HDLive is a new aspect of ultrasound that few other companies have crossed into. HDLive is unique and a neat new way to look at ultrasounds. You will ask yourself if you are looking at a rendered 4D image or a real picture when you first see it.
HDLive shines a new light on an otherwise aging 4D technology. HDLive focuses on two major components. The first component is an improved speckle reduction algorithm for use during 4D mode: VSRI, or Volume Speckle Reduction Imaging. GE has optimized speckle reduction for 4D and made it adjustable in 4D mode. With speckle reduction, the image can greatly be improved or make the image look like a wrinkled piece of paper. If used properly, it is another step towards getting a cleaner more crisp image rather then a distorted image.
The second component is “virtual light source” which doesn’t explain much to anyone who reads that. Basically HDLive is the equivalent of taking a flashlight and shinning it on a face from different angles to light up the face and seeing the different shadows the light creates, casting shadows on the face giving depth and creating new dimensions. The end results is an image that looks almost lifelike. more “GE Voluson E8 with HD Live Ultrasound Machine”
