WAUWATOSA, WIS. – GE Healthcare, the $17 billion business unit of General Electric Company (NYSE: GE), today introduced the new Venue™ ultrasound product line to the medical market. The Venue 40, the first product launched, provides visualization for needle guidance procedures and rapid diagnostics in real-time at the bedside. These “point of care” settings are the fastest growing in ultrasound around the world. In the U.S., these applications grew an average of 30 percent per year over the past four years, as cited in a recent 2008 industry report issued by Klein Biomedical Consultants, an internationally recognized source of ultrasound market trends.

An intuitive touch screen and streamlined design make Venue 40 easy to use and easy to clean, especially for clinicians who use ultrasound to make immediate care decisions, or guide procedures.

Clinicians can execute all functions through an intuitive touch screen. Annotations and measurements can be entered quickly and precisely with a stylus. The sleek system is free from buttons, knobs or a keyboard on its touchscreen. Its small size and streamlined cart allows for imaging in some of the smallest of clinical spaces, such as at the bedside or in a trauma bay. The lightweight Venue 40 system can be easily transported from room to room.   A clinician can quickly dock the compact ultrasound unit in the cart or table dock, without tools.

The Venue comes in five versions for the following procedures:
