GE releases enhanced version of Voluson ultrasound
GE Healthcare has launched enhancements to its ultrasound system for obstetrics and gynecology, the Voluson E8 Breakthrough 2008, at the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) meeting this week in San Diego.

The company said its new software program, Sonography-based Automated Volume Count, delivers a method of calculating the number and volume of ovarian follicles, which is an initial step in assisted reproductive medicine.

The Voluson E8 Breakthrough 2008 also features improved probe imaging capabilities, which enable clinicians to see more anatomical detail, GE said.
