FHP Health Center Expands Ultrasound Capabilities with 3D & 4D Technology

Tamuning, Guam —FHP Health Center has enhanced its radiology and vascular care capabilities with the acquisition of a new, state-of-the-art, LOGIQ E9 with XDclear ultrasound system from GE Healthcare, a leading manufacturer of diagnostic medical imaging equipment.

The GE LOGIQ E9 with XDclear ultrasound technology provides state-of-the-art imaging with the ability to capture extraordinary images on routine todifficult exams for general, obstetrical, gynecological and vascular, plus real-time 3D and 4D images for obstetrical ultrasound exams. This ultrasound system also has an Agile Acoustic Architecture feature, which uses proprietary dynamic models of the human body to help obtain images on a broad spectrum of patients, from small pediatric patients to the larger, obese patients–who can be more difficult to scan. Another impressive feature of this machine is GE’s XDclear transducer technology, which enhances the system’s ability to capture high quality images providing doctors with information to help themmake informed diagnosis and determine treatment options.
