Challenges in Point-of-Care

Acute intervention. Chronic patient management. Needle Guidance… Action-oriented patient care. When physicians who use ultrasound at the point of care met with GE scientists, they asked for a system designed for immediate-action workflow, bright-room operation, and precise guidance… throughout the facility…

See clearly. See quickly. Guide precisely. Those were the values users requested that drove the creation of our GE Point of Care Ultrasound products.
