GE’s breakthrough technology for this system was the Voluson E8 HD LIVE, a revision with high resolution 4D imaging introduced in 2012 and a standard feature with the Voluson E8 in revision BT12 and newer. The Voluson E8 is the best selling 4D ultrasound machine in the world even though it is more expensive than it’s competitors. The current GE Voluson E8 price range is from approximately $30,000 dollars for the oldest used E8 to $100,000 dollars for a brand new E8.
All Voluson ultrasound machines are focused on women’s health, especially obstetrics, gynecology, and fertility. Secondary applications include general imaging, adult & pediatric cardiology and Neonatal cardiology. With the advanced BT08 (break-through '08 technology), the imaging technology and quality are superior compared to that of the BT06. Regardless, the Voluson e8 is one of the premier ultrasound systems in all of GE's Voluson series, and guarantees top quality performance - keeping both diagnosticians and patients exceedingly satisfied and safe.
