The GE Venue 40 represents a new wave of tablet-based portable ultrasound machines that actually work. The Venue 40 is designed for specific markets, often known as “Point of Care” situations. These include the growing number of physicians using ultrasound at bedside for vascular access, anesthesia, interventional, MSK, and basic cardiac function. The Venue 40 has quickly become one of our most popular refurbished ultrasound machines for this rapidly emerging market.

The Venue 40 is a tablet-based portable ultrasound unit that has excellent image quality and is very small and lightweight. We were fascinated by its innovation and how it raised the bar for the new wave of tablet-based ultrasound machines. Image quality is outstanding, it’s easy-to-use, intuitive, and designed well for this market.

Image quality: The Venue 40 has CrossXBeam and Speckle Reduction Imaging (SRI) technologies, providing excellent image quality. Also, PW and Color Doppler are available as options.

The touchscreen interface is also very easy to keep clean, which is important as this will often be used in a sterile environment.

Finally, the price point is fantastic.

GE Venue 40 Review
Simply put, this thing is cool and it actually works. It’s not a Franken-Ultrasound like many manufacturers look to create today. It is designed for a specific market and doesn’t try to be everything-to-everyone. GE did a nice job creating this one.

Aside from the great image quality, there are some other great features about the Venue 40. You can connect it directly to a computer or save images on an SD or USB flash drive.

Our customers use the Venue 40 for regional anesthesia, orthopedic/MSK applications, needle guidance and interventional applications. They’re simply blown away by the quality for the price they paid. In fact, the price of the Venue 40 unit makes it an easy choice for those looking to add ultrasound to their practice or hospital. Beware, however, if you get one, you’ll have a lot of people asking you about it and wanting one of their own.
