GE HealthCare Launches Caption AI on Vscan Air SL Wireless Handheld Ultrasound System

GE HealthCare has announced the launch of Caption AI, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered software for rapid point-of-care cardiac assessment on the Vscan Air SL, giving clinicians access to real-time, step-by-step guidance to capture diagnostic-quality images and automated ejection fraction estimation to support clinical decisions in all cardiac settings.

Vscan Air SL with Caption AI is designed to lower the threshold for healthcare professionals to acquire cardiac images, allowing even non-expert ultrasound users to take a quick look at patients’ hearts. Caption AI provides real-time visual guidance to prompt the user on probe movements and includes a quality meter to ensure the user is getting the best possible images. Once an image is acquired, the AutoEF feature automatically calculates the left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). In addition, users can scan efficiently with the AutoCapture and Save Best Clip features to capture the best quality image from each view.

The ultra-portable Vscan Air SL offers high levels of depth, resolution and sensitivity in imaging performance with industry-leading single crystal transducer technology. The latest integration of Caption AI builds on GE HealthCare’s history and innovation in handheld ultrasound – it introduced the groundbreaking Vscan in 2010 as the first pocket-sized colour ultrasound device – and helps bring the next generation of ultrasound care to even more patients.

The integration of Caption AI with the Vscan Air SL handheld ultrasound opens a new chapter in cardiac screening, providing users with guidance and tools for high-quality ultrasound scans and supporting earlier detection of cardiac disease. The strategic acquisition of Caption Health in 2023 further expands the capabilities of our products and solidifies our leadership in ultrasound and the emerging artificial intelligence landscape,” said Roland Rott, president and CEO, Ultrasound, GE HealthCare.
