ACCELERATE TREATMENT DECISIONS
Quickly triage patients and make fast clinical decisions with a Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS) you carry in your pocket.
Introducing Vscan Air™ – a wireless handheld ultrasound system that helps you make clinical decisions by quickly ruling in or out certain conditions.
Vscan Extend. Expedite care when time counts.
Increase speed to diagnosis
In major trauma patients, using handheld ultrasound to conduct FAST exams can help save precious time in emergency situations.¹
Increase diagnostic accuracy
Medical residents with limited ultrasound experience increased their diagnostic accuracy in 1 of 3 patients examined in the emergency department.²
Dual probe system for quick checks and simple procedures.
An indispensable gadget, like the stethoscope, in evaluating trauma and other critical patients in the emergency department.³
Reduce the need for extra tests.
In major trauma patients, using handheld ultrasound to conduct FAST exams is a reliable and rapid alternative to MDCT.¹
See into the whole body with the Vscan Air wireless handheld ultrasound system.
Clear images. Informed decisions.
Quickly triage patients and make fast decisions on next steps*, such as admitting and discharge decisions, and the next treatment or referral choice, potentially saving precious time and minimizing the need for costly and invasive imaging procedures.
Take it anywhere** with wireless freedom and maximum portability. Vscan Air is designed for the rigors of your emergency department including makeshift care areas. It withstands everyday handling, from scratches to drops and even a rainstorm.***
Ready in your pocket.
Optimized for the most common exams in the ER, including eFAST examination for traumatic injury, evaluation of patients presenting with acute abdominal pain, shortness of breath, or undifferentiated hypotension. No need to use valuable time searching for an ultrasound cart.
Vscan Air helps you accelerate clinical decisions and perform guided interventions such as fluid drainage or securing central venous access in potentially life-threatening situations, and with the help of a visual scan at the point of care.
By your side.
Make the most of your system with the easy-to-use design, backed by GE Healthcare educational tools and 3-year warranty.

Vscan Extend Apps to Empower your Care
GE Healthcare has partnered with DiA Imaging Analysis, Ltd. to provide the LVivo EF app. It calculates ejection fraction, end-systolic and end-diastolic left ventricular volumes by automated edge detection of the left myocardial wall using apical 4-chamber views.
Enables automated TGC (time gain compensation) with a single key stroke during live scanning. Gain will be automatically adjusted for all depths.
A flexible, protocol enabled measurement tool for calculating urinary bladder volumes. It can be used anytime during a scan.
Navigates you through a systematic lung ultrasound exam. It automatically activates your scanning preset and annotates each image during the lung exam.
Provides the M-Mode capability specifically to support lung assessment and documentation of signs like seashore.
Scan Coach RHD
Provides a protocol to help you obtain images and data to assess the presence of RHD disease in the path to determining treatment options.
Scan Coach FATE
Provides a protocol of standard ultrasound imaging views and context-based reference materials to perform a systematic FATE exam.
Scan Coach FCU
Provides a protocol of standard ultrasound imaging views and context-based reference materials to perform a systematic evaluation of the heart.
Create a customized exam script that will help ensure exam consistency by guiding you through an ultrasound image acquisition protocol.
Wirelessly exported jpg files and mpg clips can be complemented by patient identifier and scan information, as recommended by ultrasound documentation standards such as AIUM and DEGUM.
Mirror the display of the Vscan Extend onto a wireless display via Miracast. You will have the ability to share and collaborate with other healthcare providers and patients.
