GE HealthCare Adds AI-Driven, Real-Time Guidance to Ultrasound Systems

GE HealthCare announced the introduction of Caption Guidance, an artificial intelligence (AI)-driven technology that provides real-time guidance to users for capturing diagnostic-quality cardiac images, to its Venue Family point-of-care ultrasound systems. The Venue Family is the first among GE HealthCare ultrasound products to incorporate this scan guidance technology following the company’s acquisition of Caption Health earlier this year. Caption Guidance is an optional add-on that offers new capabilities at the point of care, supporting clinicians in a wide range of clinical settings and practices such as emergency departments, critical care wards, and anesthesiology.

Caption Guidance on the Venue Family point-of-care ultrasound systems is available in the United States. GE HealthCare plans to integrate this innovative AI technology into other ultrasound systems, including handheld systems, helping to further expand access to diagnostic care as well as the use of ultrasound in a variety of care settings.

“We recognize the potential of Caption Health AI in revolutionizing ultrasound access and have worked quickly to deliver on integrating this promising technology to improve patient care,” said Karley Yoder, Chief Digital Officer, Ultrasound at GE HealthCare. “Within a few months of the Caption Health acquisition, we have successfully launched Caption Guidance as a powerful new guidance tool on our Venue Family ultrasound systems, enabling efficient and confident use of ultrasound at the point of care and strengthening our integrated products and solutions. We remain committed to making an impact with this technology and plan to expand its use to maternal, fetal, and pulmonary diseases.”

Caption Guidance is part of the Verisound suite of technologies formerly known as Ultrasound Digital Solutions. The new Verisound brand brings together GE HealthCare’s existing ultrasound AI and digital workflow solutions as part of a unified platform designed to help clinicians work smarter and more efficiently.
