GE Venue 50

From power up to clean up, the GE Venue 50 portable ultrasound delivers crisp images quickly with the simplicity of a tablet. Ready to go when you are, the connected applications are just two taps away and its’ seamless control panel helps make disinfection easy.

The intuitive touch user interface, upgraded from the GE Venue 40, offers easy gel-and-go scanning – just select your probe and preset in one step. Designed for speed, it takes just moments to boot up and has no buttons, keyboard or knobs to slow you down when you’re scanning the patient or disinfecting the system. When you need crisp images, accurate needle guidance and the ability to perform procedures quickly, the GE Venue 50 is a high-performance ultrasound tablet designed to accommodate those demands.


GE Venue 50 Ultrasound Machine

The GE Venue 50 point-of-care tablet-style ultrasound machine is the second-generation and more advanced version of the GE Venue 40 handheld ultrasound machine. The biggest news about the Venue 50 is that it no longer needs a stylus for operation. The stylus on the Venue 40 could sometimes get in the way of imaging and it’s a less efficient way to scan. The Venue 50 also runs the 10c-SC micro convex probe.

Additionally, the Venue 50 adds an optional multi-transducer connector that allows you to have multiple probes connected while attached to the docking station.

The Venue 50 is designed for specific markets, often known as “Point of Care” situations. This includes bedside ultrasound use for items such as vascular access, anesthesia, interventional, MSK, and basic cardiac function.

The Venue 50 is a tablet-based portable ultrasound unit that has an excellent image quality and is very small and lightweight.

The Venue 50 has CrossXBeam and Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI) technologies, providing excellent image quality.

The intuitive touch user interface offers easy gel-and-go scanning – just select a probe and preset in one step. Designed for speed, it takes just moments to boot up and has no buttons, keyboard or knobs to slow you down when you’re scanning the patient or disinfecting the system.
