Advanced Ultrasound Examinations/Fetal Diagnosis

A Detailed Anatomy ultrasound is a special type of ultrasound to assess the fetus for structural/anatomical abnormalities and its development. This is usually performed at a perinatal center where more expertise in ultrasound scanning is available. The scan is performed by an experienced sonographer and read by a qualified and experienced doctor who specializes in high risk pregnancies, called a Perinatologist. The scan is usually performed between 18-20 weeks of pregnancy. There are many situations when a Detailed Anatomy scan is ordered by your OB. Detailed scanning of the fetus for any congenital anomalies and growth abnormalities is done on top of the basic documentations obtained at a Routine Ultrasound examination. The ultrasonic waves used to image the fetus cannot be heard and produce no sensation to the fetus being imaged. A key benefit of ultrasound is that it does not use x-rays: therefore it is safe for both the fetus and the mother.

E8 is the Technology for New Generations
Every generation represents new hope for the future - even the next-generation of an ultrasound imaging platform.

Introducing the advanced technology imaging platform of the Voluson® E8, a premier women's healthcare system that delivers a new generation of image quality using ground-breaking diagnostic tools for earlier diagnoses. This advanced technology opens the door for imaging innovations to come.

  • A revolutionary new high resolution 4D transvaginal probe helps you see and detect fetal abnormalities earlier than ever, and significantly improves diagnostic confidence in complex exams.
  • New matrix array volume probes establish a whole new category of image clarity for volume imaging with increased spatial resolution that provides better visualization for 2D and multiplanar imaging.
  • The new automated imaging tool; SonoVCAD - Sonography-based Computer Aided Diagnosis improves workflow by making it easier to acquire volume images of the fetal heart.
  • GE's past is well-known and GE is a recognized leader in women's healthcare.  Now, with the Voluson E8 and its new platform for the future, the possibilities are endless.
