Voluson E10

Lastly, we will have a look at the GE Voluson E10, the most advanced of the three.

As they are all high-end systems, newer versions are priced from 25 – 35.000 euros, not including probes.
While older BT versions are considered more mid-range systems, and are therefore typically priced form 15 – 25.000 euros.

Remember that probes and sometimes specific options and accessories needs to be added to the price.
And of course the E6 cost a little less than the E8, which again cost less than the E10. If they are all comparable in BT versions.

Sum Up

The GE Voluson E series is very popular and all models are providing good imaging. However, GE Voluson E6 is a scaled-down version of the E8, with fewer channels on the beamformer. Because of this key difference, some options and probes are not available on the E6.

If you do OB/GYN examinations in a clinic or small to medium size hospital, both of these systems will be a good choice.
Nevertheless, if you have a bigger hospital with a heavy workload, then the Voluson E10 might be the right choice.
