Product Overview

A system you can rely on.
Timely access to quality ultrasound is critical in women’s healthcare. You need an ultrasound system that gives you flexibility, ease of use, and the speed and reliability to manage a comprehensive range of routine obstetric and gynecological exams. The powerful Voluson E6 system is your answer. It offers an excellent mix of capabilities for effective and efficient care, including extraordinary 2D image quality, outstanding 3D/4D imaging, automation advances, intuitive workflow tools, and a smart ergonomic design.

Image Quality

The Voluson E6 has been enhanced with next generation GE volume ultrasound technologies that have been migrated through the Voluson family including:

GE Healthcare Voluson E6 Image Quality

Second Generation GE Dynamic Rendering Engine – It’s 3D rendering at the speed your busy practice demands. The Voluson platform, Dynamic Rendering Engine and innovative transducers work together to give you extraordinary image quality and seamless operation. The ability to acquire images in mere seconds at the touch of a button.

HDlive* – This GE second-generation rendering tool provides exceptional anatomical realism to help enhance clinical confidence and helps increase depth perception. This imaging capability can help you achieve a deeper understanding of relational anatomy, enrich patient communication and help enhance diagnostic confidence. Learn more about HDlive.

Advanced VCI (Volume Contrast Imaging) with OmniView – Diagnostic confidence in sonography requires the ability to differentiate irregular shapes with precision. This tool helps improve contrast resolution and visualization of the rendered anatomy in any plane. 

Innovations in transducer technology

Help enhance your views and image quality with our wide range of 2D and 3D Voluson transducers, optimized for OB/GYN applications and designed for easy imaging:

RAB6-D ultra-light volume transducer – User fatigue may be reduced with this GE next generation volume transducer that is 40% lighter than the previous version. Its ergonomic design provides outstanding image quality in 2D and 3D/4D, features a pinless connector and sits comfortably in the operator’s hand.   

C4-8-D transducer – The high frequency and small footprint of this transducer helps provide exceptional high-resolution obstetrical images during each trimester.

C1-5-D abdominal 2D transducer – Image confidently with deep penetration even when scanning large patients.

Innovations in image 2D image quality

Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI) for enhanced visualization of normal and abnormal anatomy contrast resolution that suppresses speckle artifact while maintaining true tissue architecture.

CrossXBeamCRI* for enhanced tissue interfaces and border differentiation with an innovative, real-time spatial compounding acquisition and processing.

HD-Flow* uses a bi-directional Doppler feature to help achieve a sensitive vascular study and reduce overwriting.


In designing the Voluson E6, we were committed to keeping the people who use it our priority. We envisioned a system that would be enjoyable to use on a daily basis. One that was intuitive, with customizable features to help increase user comfort level. So we built an ergonomic system to help reduce fatigue, strain and repetitious actions. And just as important, a user-friendly system that allows you to focus more on the patient while scanning.  Voluson E6 Expert eronomic features include:

  • Articulating arm
  • Adjustable console
  • Easy transport
  • Intuitive user interface
  • 19” high-resolution, flat screen monitor

Ease of Use and Productivity

Innovations in image automation:

SonoNT (Sonography-based Nuchal Translucency) and SonoIT (Sonography-based Intracranial Translucency) – Voluson technologies that help provide semi-automatic, standardized measurements of the nuchal and intracranial translucency as early as 11 weeks. Both tools can integrate easily into your workflow. SonoNT helps reduce the inter-and-intra-observer variability that comes with manual measurements, and helps provide you with the reproducibility you demand. 

SonoBiometry – Performs a semi-automatic measurement of the head (both head circumference and bi-parietal diameter), abdomen and femur. This tool can help enhance clinical workflow through helping reduce keystrokes to perform biometry measurements.

Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Display heart (SonoVCAD* heart) assists in generating standard views of a fetal heart from a four-chamber view. This tool provides six views of the fetal heart left outflow tract, right outflow tract, venous connection, ductal arch, stomach and aortic arch.

Sonography-based Automated Volume Count follicle (SonoAVC* follicle) is an innovative software program designed to automatically calculate the number and volume of hypoechoic structures from a 3D ovarian volume.

SonoVCADlabor (Sonography-based Volume Computer Aided Displaylabor) Helps you evaluate second-stage labor progression, and automatically documents the labor procedure with objective ultrasound data.

SonoRender Start is an auto-optimization tool that helps you achieve fast access to surface structure rendering while you are performing 3D examinations.

Innovative tools for a comprehensive exam

E-Series systems have a customizable Scan Assistant tool that can help you increase exam consistency and boost productivity. Scan assistant can help you:

  • Avoid missed exam steps with user-created checklists for different exam types.
  • Reduce annotation and measurement time with customizable sub-menus.
  • Provide comprehensive exam steps and completion tracking.
  • Increase consistency of exam content, from the single-user to entire department staff, with exam parameters that you define.

4D View

GE’s PC software, called 4D View, allows you to work at an offline workstation to help optimize, manipulate and analyze your Volume Ultrasound data, freeing your ultrasound machine to image more patients. For more information please visit
