Image Quality

Voluson image quality – you can rely on it


VolusonTM technology has established to deliver a high standard for 2D and 3D imaging - the Voluson P8 continues the tradition. 


You can count on exceptional images in various applications, from routine OB evaluations and gynecological studies to cardiac, abdominal, vascular, and small parts scanning.

Innovative Voluson tools include:

  • SRI (Speckle Reduction Imaging) – Helps improve visualization and contrast resolution by reducing intrinsic artifacts.
  • HD-Zoom – Helps users localize regions of interest for closer study. 
  • CrossXBeamCRI TM - Helps enhance tissue interfaces and border differentiation. 
  • Wide sector for endocavitary probes – Enables more anatomical information to be displayed in a single image versus the standard field of view.

Ease of Use & Productivity

As easy as 1-2-3D

Hard working ultrasound capabilities – like 2D, Doppler, and 3D imaging – are just a keystroke away with a Voluson Performance system. 


Voluson automation advances help enable busy practices to provide excellent patient care while helping reduce the time needed to conduct, analyze, and report on exams: 

  • Intuitive, easy to use keyboard – helps achieve uninterrupted scanning.
  • Auto Optimization for 2D and Doppler – helps enhance contrast resolution at the touch of a button.
  • Auto focus for 2D – Provides automated positioning of the focal zone and helps allow the user concentrate on scanning.
  • Raw data – conduct a virtual rescan of the patient any time post-exam to help increase productivity and enhance diagnostic confidence.
  • SonoRender Start – Helps enhance volume rendering with a keystroke.
  • Reporting and archiving tools – Enable easy creation of a structured report including 1st trimester, 2nd/3rd trimester, and gynecology exams. You can also export a report, including charts, in PDF format at the touch of a button.

Ergonomics

A system designed for ease of use and comfort

In designing the VolusonTM P8, we were committed to keeping clinicians who use it our priority.


We envisioned a system that would be enjoyable to use on a daily basis. The result: an ergonomic design that provides fast access to frequently used functions to provide exceptional user comfort and productivity.

Take a tour of the Voluson P8 ergonomics:

  • 15-inch, flat-screen LCD monitor – moves independently of the console. 
  • Simplified keyboard – enables exams to be completed with fewer keystrokes and rotates to adjust to the user. 
  • Sleek, lightweight console – with a small physical footprint to help optimize use of small spaces. 
  • Transducer holder – protects probes while positioning them for user convenience. 
  • Wireless connectivity – enables efficient transmission of reports and images.
  • Integrated peripherals – including a DVR module help expand functionality.

The Voluson Performance series also follows the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (SDMS) ergonomic guidelines.
