The GE Venue R1 & R2 | Perfected Point-of-Care Ultrasound

From ultrasound systems that fit in your pocket, to tablet-based systems, to portable console systems perfect for your practice, point-of-care ultrasound is the newest clinical application GE has expanded into. The company’s newest ultrasound offerings are targeted at making ultrasound more accessible, faster, and simpler for every physician to use. The GE Venue is no exception here. Standing on the shoulders of the GE Venue 40 and GE Venue 50, the GE Venue is point-of-care ultrasound perfected. Venue has the most advanced ultrasound technology to date. There are currently two revisions of the Venue, the Venue R1, and the Venue R2. The only difference between the two systems is the software, meaning more options are available on the R2 than the R1. Read more how GE has perfected this best-of-its-kind tablet-based ultrasound system.

Improved HardwareThe GE Venue Point of Care Ultrasound System

Learning from the customer-feedback and pitfalls of the Venue 40 and Venue 50, the Venue received a full physical overhaul to make it more user-friendly and efficient. It even has a 4-hour battery and timer, so it is ready when you need it to be.


Instead of the stylus-based & rudimentary touchscreens of the 40 and 50, the Venue has a large, 19-inch articulating monitor that allows you to see images from across the room and reposition for various procedures. The flat-screen display is also seamlessly one piece of glass, making cleaning a breeze. There are also no buttons, which let you go right to work.


The new Venue cart is designed for cable management and efficiency. It has four probe ports in the back allowing you to have more transducers at your disposal. There are also integrated hangers that help keep the probe cables off the ground, helping them last longer. The cart also comes with cardiac-specific tools, like TEE and ECG. Its wheels have also been improved. They are bigger and easier to maneuver the Venue where you need it to go.


The GE Venue Point of Care Critical Ultrasound System

Venue is tough. GE created the new Venue under the impression that it would take a beating in a variety of different environments. According to GE, they “tested it until it broke, redesigned, and tested again.” Now that’s tough. It is even able to be serviced by individuals with basic mechanical skills, with most operations requiring no tools or only a screwdriver.

Improved Ultrasound Transducers

The Venue moves away from the “SC” or super compact transducers used by the Venue 40 and 50 and now utilizes the “RS” or compact probes found in most of GE’s more popular ultrasound systems. This change allows the Venue to offers you more transducers to utilize, like the GE L4-12t-RS, GE L12n-RS, and GE C1-5-RS giving you more scan options and higher-quality exam results.

Improved Software

Venue comes with the applications and tools you come to expert from GE’s point-of-care offerings and more. These include eFAST Tool, Shock Toolkit, Auto VTI, Auto IVC, Auto B-Lines, Lung Review,  and Auto Workflows.
