One of the best-selling portable ultrasound machines on the market today remains the GE Logiq e. It’s versatile and always a “safe bet” when purchasing an ultrasound machine.
Although the Logiq e is supposed to be user-friendly, some things are not simple. It can be a complicated piece of equipment, especially when you’re looking into the system utilities, exporting, or connecting to a network.
The GE Logiq e basic ultrasound training series will help you understand one of the best portable ultrasound machines, how it works, and its semi-complicated workflow.
Understanding the GE Logiq e Ultrasound Machine
The very popular GE Logiq e ultrasound machine can be a complex, difficult-to-use system once you get beyond the basic scanning. That’s not to say it’s difficult for everyone, but for those looking to using its more advanced features, such as system customization and DICOM setup, few people get can correctly perform these functions without some sort of initial difficulty.
This multi-step guide for the GE Logiq e Ultrasound Training Series is an overview of the entire Logiq e ultrasound machine, and addresses the various functions and features that are not as obvious.
This is an important video in the training series, as it provides an overview of how the ultrasound works and addresses some features that are not obvious.
2D Imaging with the GE Logiq e ultrasound machine
In this section of the GE Logiq e training series, we will learn about the general imaging process and all the key features about starting an exam, adjusting the image, saving, reviewing, and optimizing the image.
This video addresses key features built into the Logiq e, and important items that are not completely intuitive.
Making measurements and calculations with the GE Logiq e
This section of the GE Logiq e Training Series address making measurements and calculations on the GE Logiq e portable ultrasound machine. Much of what is taught here also applies to the GE Vivid e.
The Logiq e’s package can be cumbersome but fairly straightforward. It’s very customizable for those who prefer more automated measurements and calculation processes. This training video covers the basics and understanding how it works.
Doppler and M-Mode Imaging with the GE Logiq e
Using Doppler and M-Mode on the GE Logiq e is relatively straightforward, however, there are some hidden customizations and optimization features that are not known by most users.
This section of the GE Logiq e Training Series addresses the basics and more advanced features of using Doppler on the GE Logiq e portable ultrasound machine.
DICOM, Networking, PACS, and Exporting
I don’t think I’ve ever spoken with someone who has successfully exported images or set up a connectivity solution for the GE Logiq e on their first try.
I’m talking about experienced IT people, sonographers, physicians, etc. Even the most experienced people call me frustrated and baffled at the seemingly confusing and complicated DICOM connectivity with the Logiq e.
In fact, until I released this video, this issue was, hands down, the #1 technical support issue I deal with on the GE Logiq e involving connectivity and exporting images.
While this process is not intuitive, the connectivity and export options on the Logiq e are powerful and diverse. However, unfortunately you’ll need solid knowledge of your network or access to an IT professional, as well as information from your PACS/DICOM provider.
This video shows how to export images, and where to go to input the data received by the PACS administrator (radiologist or DICOM server admin), but you’ll need to get the proper information from the network administrator and PACS admin.
Additionally, exporting images for viewing on a PC in a PC format such as JPG or AVI can be extremely difficult and often produces poor results. This video discusses exporting in DICOM format and avoiding any other format for exporting images. It simply doesn’t work unless you try to use MPEGVue, which is incompatible with recent Windows operating systems.
GE Logiq e Setup, Configuration, and Customization Training
The final installment of the GE Logiq e Training Series introduces the Utilities features on the GE Logiq e, which involves customization, presets, and a wide variety of settings on the Logiq e. These screens can be very complex, but I address what each screen does and you can decide what is important and what is not.
The GE Logiq e configuration screens are shown throughout this training series, as many important features can be found there. It’s a good idea to walk through this overview of the utilities screen and understand all the things you can change and customize on your Logiq e.
