Imaging. Elevated.

Better image quality. Faster volume rates with higher processing power. Smaller probes.† With the Imaging. Elevated. release, cSound 2.0 facilitates a new level of image quality and 4D volume rates by expansion of the processing power and the development of new beamforming algorithms. As you navigate the increasing challenges of cardiovascular care, the Vivid™ E95 cardiovascular ultrasound system brings you the uncompromised imaging you need more than ever. From the beamformer to the image processor (GPU) to the probes, we've advanced key elements of the system to deliver a solution that's Better. Faster. Smaller.

†10T Micro TEE and 4Vc-D.


Faced with diverse body types and complex medical issues, many conventional ultrasound systems too often yield non-diagnostic exams that may hinder the efficiency of coordinated care. Recognizing this challenge, GE has taken cardiovascular ultrasound to a higher level with a new imaging platform called cSound*.

Echo Lab


One patient, one probe The new one-probe adult 4D TTE solution on the Vivid™ E95 provides an excellent ergonomic workflow solution with uncompromised 2D, 4D, color and Doppler image quality performance at ultra-high volume rates - all with a single probe. This allows for complete and comprehensive diagnosis with one probe and avoids switching of probes, thereby reducing exam time and helping you move swiftly through your work with minimal muscular stress and strain on the operator.

TCI and ACE - Observe the spatial, temporal and contrast resolution in the 2D image obtained with this new 4Vc-D probe.

4D color imaging with the 4Vc-D probe - High volume rates with excellent spatial resolution in single beat acquisition as shown in this mitral valve regurgitation at 15 fps.

Color Flow - XDclear transducer technology provides excellent color sensitivity, contrast resolution and spectral crispness.

True Confocal Imaging Introduces uniform focusing, combined with increased contrast resolution throughout the field of view at high frame rates.

Blood Speckle Imaging (BSI) - Available for pediatrics as well as transesophageal echo (6VT-D only). BSI, which reduces the angle dependency and aliasing issues of conventional color flow, provides a graphical representation of the trajectories of the blood cells.

Virtual Apex - Phased array probes provide a wide field of view for enhanced visualization of structures at the sides of the sector.


Define the care path Quantification with Vivid E95 is all about helping providers evaluate problems and pursue the path forward. Count on a full suite of intuitive tools to make your work easy and efficient. Quickly, accurately and thoroughly quantify left and right ventricular wall motion and other key functions.

Automated Function Imaging (AFI)** - Assess and quantify left ventricular wall motion at rest or Stress (with AFI Stress option), calculating a large set of parameters.

AFI Stress

4D Strain** calculates both global and regional strain values based upon a spatial speckle-tracking algorithm. The information is presented in a strain bull’s-eye plot.

Myocardial Work** - introduces new and less load dependent parameters based upon the results obtained with AFI (longitudinal strain) by accounting for the systolic blood pressure measured at rest immediately prior to the echo exam, as well as the MV and AV opening and closure times. These reduced load dependent parameters may provide more accurate and reproducible results, important especially for follow-up of patients over time

4D Auto RVQ** - This package helps visualize and quantify the right ventricle in TTE images via a semiautomatic, surface-detecting algorithm. It's seamlessly integrated into the regular M&A menu, with results ready for immediate review.


Streamline your exams Vivid E95 with cSound performance makes 4D imaging as easy as 2D imaging with efficient and intuitive tools. The high-quality raw data as well as the DICOM® format adapts to your preferences in terms of resolution and gray scale. You can move smoothly through your work, thanks to automated tools that minimize user interaction and provide quick access to stored settings. The QuickApps tool provides flexibility and easy workflow by providing instant access to settings that were stored earlier to match your color flow or contrast parameters, keeping the geometry of the current live image.

Cardiac Auto Doppler - With minimal user interaction, Cardiac Auto Doppler provides Doppler measurements over all heart cycles for the most common parameters, supporting consistent results in advanced studies and potentially saving time.


4D Views - 4D Views provides you with “one-touch” options to view images such as 4-chamber, 2-chamber, APLAX, mitral valve, septum, and aortic valve. After a rapid alignment, it takes the full volume acquisition data set and, with the touch of a button, automatically crops away the volume to instantly deliver the view you want.



Ultra-high single-beat volume rates With TEE procedures growing, so is the need to find ways to achieve the benefits of 4D imaging without compromising productivity. Vmax* enabled by cSound™ 2.0 offers ultra-high 4D volume rates acquired in single beat acquisition with no loss of image quality. Elimination of ECG gated multibeat/stitching acquisition provides enhanced overview of structures and function in cases with high and/or irregular heart rhythm - which potentially reduces interventional procedure time and improves patient outcomes.

4D TEE color imaging with Vmax - 4D color volume rates at large volume sizes for sake of overview, acquired in single beat acquisition as shown in this aortic valve flow acquired at 10 fps.

HDlive* - is an advanced visualization method that simulates light propagation and scattering through tissue.

FlexiZoom’s - intuitive user interface enables flexible, quick and easy visualization of the structures of interest. The 4D zoom buttons provide quick live access to main heart structures, with no need for further volume cropping or rotation.


Triplane - Triplane lets you image three planes from the same heartbeat, with high temporal and spatial resolution.

View-X** - displays X-ray from fluoroscopy in real time right on your Vivid screen as a picture in picture, facilitating communication between team members.

Micro TEE Multiplane Probe - Clearly visualize complex heart conditions in neonatal patients(down to 2.5 kg) and for adults with intolerance to standard TEE.


Exploration made easy Quantification with Vivid E95 elevates providers’ ability to evaluate problems and pursue the path forward. Count on a full suite of intuitive tools to make your work easy and efficient.

4D Auto MVQ - Supporting TTE or TEE images, this package helps visualize and quantify the mitral valve via a semi-automatic, surface-detecting algorithm. It’s seamlessly integrated into the regular M&A menu, with results ready for immediate review.

4D Auto AVQ automatically segments, aligns and quantifies the aortic outflow tract – vital to device sizing and orientation for TAVI/TAVR procedures.


Facilitate complex procedures You can move smoothly through your work, with tools that help to simplify and reduce scanning time. Additional tools include 2-click crop, Biplane prepare and 4D views.

FlexiSlice - Extracting 2D slices from 4D volumes can be a complicated process. FlexiSlice is an intuitive, interactive tool for obtaining many 2D or render views in either live or replay mode.

FlexiViews - provides quick access to predefined 4D/Multiplane views during live mode, potentially reducing scan time during complex interventional procedures.
