Versana Balance is a powerful ultrasound system for private clinics, GP offices and other primary-care settings. Designed for clinicians who have used ultrasound and wish to upgrade their capability.
Versana Balance combines budget-friendly features with high-quality design and practical equipment. The system’s development is based on extensive research and testing to fulfil the users’ high demands.
Versana Balance equipment and functions are backed by GE Healthcare’s legacy of ultrasound excellence. A wide variety of probes and clinical tools enable quick and comfortable examinations for a broad range of medical diagnoses.
Whizz image tuning
Just touch the Whizz button on your console once. Without pressing it again, Whizz continuously and automatically optimizes the image, even as you move from one organ or structure to another.
Connect a microphone, touch a screen icon, and capture hand-free recorded voice comments that are overlaid on images and saved for playback later when reviewing the exam.
Automatically track myocardial tissue deformation and calculate the left ventricular ejection fraction. The system makes the tracings from the apical four-chamber and apical two-chamber views and calculates the ejection fraction.
B-Flow and B-Flow color
B-Flow is intended to provide a more intuitive representation of non-quantitative hemodynamics in vascular structures.
Visualize all three image planes within a scan volume in real time; especially useful in OB examinations. 4D image rendering and display provide fast reconstruction of anatomical sweeps. 4D provides continuous, high-volume acquisition of images. 4D adds the dimension of movement to a 3D image.
Use the AutoBladder function within the Whizz feature to combine optimized ultrasound image quality with automated measurements.
Provide ultrasound sonographers with predefined standardized exam protocols that walk them through all steps of image acquisition, saving keystrokes, reducing stress and fatigue, and maximizing exam consistency.
Tissue velocity imaging (TVI)
Calculates and color-codes the velocities in tissues.
A template editor for myocardium stress testing. Evaluate heart segment function through myocardium stress scoring and comparison. Stress echo support enables wall motion scoring and automatic stress level labeling of measurements.
Versana Balance™ scanning with a smooth, linear translation, or sector sweep. Easy 3D allows for the free hand to acquire grey 3D images. Advanced 3D includes color doppler free hand 3D. Now Easy 3D and Advanced 3D is bundled within one Hcat#.
Assess the thyroid while scanning; describe structure characteristics in comments that feed directly into the report.
This reference tool provides 3D animated pictures, anatomic illustrations and ultrasound reference images to help you determine the proper scan plane for acquisition.
Use TruScan raw data in cardiac exams to make an advanced analysis and quantification of left ventricular function.
Acquire data in the background during regular 2D imaging.
Perform accurate biopsies with technology that clarifies the precise location of the needle point.
Assess breasts while scanning; describe structure characteristics including Bi-Rads in comments that feed directly into the report. Use the Auto Contour feature to easily measure structures.
Effective exam follow-up
For follow-up exams, the Follow-up Tool automatically identifies the same ultrasound probe, preset, depth, gain and frequency settings as used in the prior scan. The current real-time ultrasound image displays side-by-side with the prior image for easy comparison.
Imaging with color overlay on the tissue image.
Receive suggested caliper placements to perform standardized BPD, HC, AC, FL and HL fetal measurements.
GE advanced remote service technology and remote monitoring diagnostics and repair; instantly connect your ultrasound machine with a GE service expert to resolve many issues remotely on the spot.
