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

What is the cost of a GE ulstrasound?

As these GE ultrasounds are all high-end systems, newer versions are priced from 25 – 35.000 euros, not including probes. The older BT versions are considered to be mid-range systems and are therefore typically priced from 15 – 25.000 euros.

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.

Remember that probes and sometimes specific options and accessories needs to be added to the price.

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 for you.
