CHICAGO - Apr 18, 2024 -- GE HealthCare (Nasdaq: GEHC) today announced the launch of the Voluson Signature 20 and 18 ultrasound systems, which comprehensively integrate artificial intelligence (AI), advanced tools and an ergonomic design to speed exam time for clinicians while delivering a clearer picture of various conditions impacting women’s health. These latest systems combine high-performance hardware with flexible scalable software to help increase clinicians’ confidence in their diagnostic and treatment determinations.

Today, patient volumes are increasing and health conditions are becoming more complex – especially for women who face complications related to pregnancy, as well as other conditions impacting the female reproductive system. At the same time, workforce shortages continue to be a major challenge for health systems who are trying to meet these demands, with 42% of clinicians surveyed as part of GE HealthCare’s Reimagining Better Health study considering leaving the healthcare industry. To help address patient demand and reduce staffing burdens, clinicians across the board need tools, including innovative AI-enabled ultrasound technologies, that support a clear, quick and confident diagnosis.

"We've seen huge advancements in ultrasound technology, including the use of AI, resulting in a new era of ultrasound scanning. The new Voluson Signature series features innovative tools clinicians can rely on, and the automated functions help reduce work stress and improve workflows," said Dr. Ben Csapo, Maternal Fetal Medicine Specialist Graz, Austria. "The most important part of our work is building connections with patients and not over-instrumentalizing work. Having a tool that helps clinicians work smarter, faster and easier is a good step forward for patients.”

The latest AI-powered capabilities on the Voluson Signature 20 and 18 enable a number of efficiencies across women’s health care settings.

The new “Hey Voluson” feature allows users to operate the system using voice commands, saving time and keystrokes.
SonoLyst*, a suite of tools that leverage AI to identify fetal anatomy seen on standard views, then automatically annotates and measures where applicable, and can reduce time to complete standard International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) second trimester exams by up to 40%.
SonoPelvicFloor simplifies assessments of the pelvic floor and speeds up exams by automating plane alignment and measurements for an up to 76% keystroke reduction.
