Battery
The lithium ion battery provides power when an AC power
source is not available. A battery in the battery bay is standard
with the LOGIQ e. Lithium ion batteries last longer than
conventional batteries and do not require replacement as often.
You can expect one hour of battery life while scanning with a
single fully charged battery.
The lithium ion technology used in your system’s battery is
significantly less hazardous to the environment than the lithium
metal technology used in some other batteries (such as watch
batteries). Used batteries should not be placed with common
household waste products. Contact local authorities for the
location of a chemical waste collection program nearest you.

•
Long term (3 months or more) storage of battery pack:
•
Store the battery in a temperature range between
-20 degrees C (-4 degrees F) and 45 degrees C
(113 degrees F)
•
Upon receipt of the LOGIQ e and before first time
usage, it is highly recommended that the customer
performs one full discharge/charge cycle.
NOTE: A full discharge/charge cycle means the
system is turned on using battery power until the
battery loses its charge completely and the system
shuts down. Plug the LOGIQ e in until the battery is
fully charged as indicated by a green LCD light.
If the battery has not been used for >2 months, the
customer is recommended to perform one full
discharge/charge cycle. It is also recommended to
store the battery in a shady and cool area with FCC
(full current capacity).
•
One Full Discharge/Charge Cycle Process:
1. Full discharge of battery to let the LOGIQ e
automatically shut down.
2. Charge the LOGIQ e to 100% FCC (full current
capacity).
3. Discharge of LOGIQ e for complete shut down
(takes one hour for discharge).

B-Mode Controls
Description/Benefit
Depth
Yes
Depth controls the distance over which the B-Mode images
anatomy. To visualize deeper structures, increase the depth. If there
is a large part of the display which is unused at the bottom,
decrease the depth.
Gain
No
B-Mode Gain increases or decreases the amount of echo
information displayed in an image. It may have the effect of
brightening or darkening the image if sufficient echo information is
generated.
Focus
Yes
Increases the number of focal zones or moves the focal zone(s) so
that you can tighten up the beam for a specific area. A graphic caret
corresponding to the focal zone position(s) appears on the right
edge of the image.
Auto Optimize
No
Auto lets you optimize the image based upon the actual B-Mode
image data (Auto Tissue Optimize, ATO). The preset levels (Low,
Medium, and High) allow you to pick a preference for the contrast
enhancement in the resulting image. Low does the least amount of
contrast enhancement, high does the most.
Auto is available in single or multi image, on live, frozen or CINE
images (in B-Mode only), and while in zoom, in Color Flow Mode,
and in Spectral Doppler.
Auto in Color Flow Mode automatically adjusts the overall color
gain.
Auto in PW Doppler Mode optimizes the spectral data. Auto adjusts
the Velocity Scale/PRF (live image only), baseline shift, dynamic
range, and invert (if preset). Upon deactivation, the spectrum is still
optimized.
The benefit of Auto can be found in reduced optimization time and a
more consistent and accurate optimization process.
M/D Cursor
No
Displays the Doppler Mode cursor on the B-Mode image.
Harmonics
Yes
Harmonics enhances near field resolution for improved small parts
imaging as well as far field penetration.
Frequency
Yes
Multi Frequency mode lets you downshift to the probe's next lower
frequency or shift up to a higher frequency.

Bioeffect
B-Mode Controls (Continued)
Description/Benefit
CrossXBeam
Yes
CrossXBeam is the process of combining three or more frames from
different steering angles into a single frame.
The combined single image has the benefits of reduced speckle
noise, reduced clutter, and continuity of specular reflectors.
Therefore, this technique can improve contrast resolution with
increased conspicuity of low contrast lesions, better detection of
calcifications, biopsy needle visualization, and cystic boundary
definition.
TGC
No
TGC amplifies returning signals to correct for the attenuation
caused by tissues at increasing depths. TGC slide pots are spaced
proportionately to the depth. The area each pot amplifies varies as
well. A TGC curve may appear on the display (if preset), matching
the controls that you have set (except during zoom). You can
choose to deactivate the TGC curve on the image.
Scan Area
Yes
You can widen or narrow the size of the sector angle to maximize
the image's region of interest (ROI).
Tilt
Yes
You can steer the sector angle to get more information without
moving the probe while in B-Mode, M-Mode, Doppler Mode, and
Color Flow Mode. Tilt is not available on Linear probes.
Angle Steer
Yes
You can steer the PW Doppler or Color Flow sector angle to get
more information without moving the probe.
Reverse
No
Flips the image 180 degrees left/right.
Dynamic Range
(Compression)
No
Dynamic Range controls how echo intensities are converted to
shades of gray, thereby increasing the adjustable range of contrast.
The Dynamic Range control name changes to Compression on
frozen images.
Line Density
Yes
Optimizes B-Mode frame rate or spatial resolution for the best
possible image.
Map
No
The system supplies B, M, and Doppler Mode system maps.
Frame Average
No
Temporal filter that averages frames together, thereby using more
pixels to make up one image. This has the effect of presenting a
smoother, softer image.
Colorize
No
Colorize is the colorization of a conventional B-Mode image or
Doppler Spectrum to enhance the user's ability to discern B, M, and
Doppler Mode intensity valuations. Colorize is NOT a Doppler
Mode. Colorizes the gray scale image to enhance the eye’s
discrimination capability.
Spectrum Colorize colorizes the spectrum as a function of power
using the inverse of the Colorize map for the signal intensity in each
Doppler line. Colorize enhances the visibility of the spectrum's
characteristics and enhances your ability to identify spectral
broadening and the edge contours of the spectrum used to define
the peak frequency/velocity.

Power Doppler
Imaging (PDI)
No
Power Doppler Imaging (PDI) is a color flow mapping technique
used to map the strength of the Doppler signal coming from the
tissue rather than the frequency shift of the signal. Using this
technique, the ultrasound system plots color flow based on the
number of reflectors that are moving, regardless of their velocity.
PDI does not map velocity, therefore it is not subject to aliasing.
M Color Flow Mode
Yes
M Color Flow is used for fetal cardiac applications. Color Flow
overlays color on the M-Mode image using velocity and variance
color maps. The Color Flow wedge overlays the B-Mode image and
M-Mode timeline.
The Color Flow maps available in M-Mode are the same as in Color
Flow Mode. The size and position of the Color Flow window in BMode determines the size and position of the Color Flow window in
M-Mode.
All M-Mode measurements are available with M Color Flow active:
depth, distance along a straight line, % stenosis, volume, trace,
circumference, enclosed area, distance, time, slope, and heart rate.

variety of tissues ranging from intact skin in a routine exam to
recirculating blood in a surgical procedure. The level of risk of
infection varies greatly with the type of contact.
One of the most effective ways to prevent transmission between
patients is with single use or disposable devices. However,
ultrasound transducers are complex and expensive devices that
must be reused between patients. It is very important, therefore,
to minimize the risk of disease transmission by using barriers
and through proper processing between patients.
CAUTION
Risk of Infection. ALWAYS clean and disinfect the probe
between patients to the level appropriate for the type of
examination and use FDA-cleared probe sheaths where
appropriate. See ‘Supplies/Accessories’ on page 3-33 for
ordering information.
CAUTION
Adequate cleaning and disinfection are necessary to prevent
disease transmission. It is the responsibility of the equipment
user to verify and maintain the effectiveness of the infection
control procedures in use. Always use sterile, legally marketed
probe sheaths for intra-cavitary and intra-operative procedures.
For neurological intra-operative procedures, use of a legally
marketed, sterile, pyrogen free probe sheath is REQUIRED.
Probes for neuro surgical use must not be sterilized with liquid
chemical sterilants because of the possibility of neuro toxic
residues remaining on the probe.

Endocavitary Probe Handling Precautions
If the sterilization solution comes out of the endocavitary probe,
please follow the cautions below.
CAUTION
Sterile/sanitary sheaths are to be used on the probe during its
actual use with patients. Wearing gloves protects the patient
and operator.
CAUTION
Sterilant Exposure to Patient (e.g., Cidex)—Contact with a
sterilant to the patient’s skin or mucous membrane may cause
an inflammation. If this happens, refer to the sterilant’s
instruction manual.
Sterilant Exposure from Probe Handle to Patient (e.g.,
Cidex)—DO NOT allow the sterilant to contact the patient.
Only immerse the probe to its specified level. Ensure that no
solution has entered the probe’s handle before scanning the
patient. If sterilant comes into contact with the patient, refer the
the sterilant’s instruction manual.
Sterilant Exposure from Probe Connector to Patient (e.g.,
Cidex)—DO NOT allow the sterilant to contact the patient.
Only immerse the probe to its specified level. Ensure that no
solution has entered the probe’s connector before scanning the
patient. If sterilant comes into contact with the patient, refer the
the sterilant’s instruction manual.
Endocavitary Probe Point of Contact—Refer to the

Probe Cleaning Process
Cleaning probes
Perform After
Each Use
To clean the probe:
1. Disconnect the probe from the ultrasound console and
remove all coupling gel from the probe by wiping with a soft
cloth and rinsing with flowing water.
2. Wash the probe with mild soap in lukewarm water. Scrub
the probe as needed using a soft sponge, gauze, or cloth to
remove all visible residue from the probe surface. Prolonged
soaking or scrubbing with a soft bristle brush (such as a
toothbrush) may be necessary if material has dried onto the
probe surface.
CAUTION
Take extra care when handling the lens face of the
Ultrasound transducer. The lens face is especially sensitive
and can easily be damaged by rough handling. NEVER
use excessive force when cleaning the lens face.
3. Rinse the probe with enough clean potable water to remove
all visible soap residue.
4. Air dry or dry with a soft cloth.

Ultrasound probes can be disinfected using liquid chemical
germicides. The level of disinfection is directly related to the
duration of contact with the germicide. Increased contact time
produces a higher level of disinfection.

“CAUTION” - Dangerous voltage” (the lightning flash with arrowhead) is used
to indicate electric shock hazards.
Biohazard - Patient/user infection due to contaminated equipment.
Usage
• Cleaning and care instructions
• Sheath and glove guidelines
Ultrasound probes are highly sensitive medical instruments that can easily be
damaged by improper handling. Use care when handling and protect from
damage when not in use.
Do not immerse the probe into any liquid beyond the level specified for that
probe. Refer to the user manual of the ultrasound system.
Since there is a possibility of having negative effects on the probe, observe the
specified immersing time by the germicide manufacturer strictly. Do not
immerse the probe in liquid chemical germicides more than the time prescribed
in the care card.

WARNING
Patient
identification
The concerns listed can seriously affect the safety of patients
undergoing a diagnostic ultrasound examination.
Always include proper identification with all patient data and
verify the accuracy of the patient's name and ID numbers when
entering such data. Make sure correct patient ID is provided on
all recorded data and hard copy prints. Identification errors could
result in an incorrect diagnosis.
If the LOGIQ e needs to be sent for repair, ensure that any
patient information is backup and erased from the system before
shipping. In case that any patient information is still residing on
the LOGIQ e, GE will contact the customer and request for
urgent collection of that patient information. GE will keep this
patient information in a secure environment for a maximum
period of 1 month. All patient information will be permanently
deleted at that point.
Diagnostic
information
Equipment malfunction or incorrect settings can result in
measurement errors or failure to detect details within the image.
The equipment user must become thoroughly familiar with the
equipment operation in order to optimize its performance and
recognize possible malfunctions. Applications training is
available through the local GE representative. Added
confidence in the equipment operation can be gained by
establishing a quality assurance program.

Mechanical
hazards
The use of damaged probes can result in injury or increased risk
of infection. Inspect probes often for sharp, pointed, or rough
surface damage that could cause injury or tear protective
barriers. Become familiar with all instructions and precautions
provided with special purpose probes.
Electrical
Hazard
A damaged probe can also increase the risk of electric shock if
conductive solutions come in contact with internal live parts.
Inspect probes often for cracks or openings in the housing and
holes in and around the acoustic lens or other damage that
could allow liquid entry. Become familiar with the probe's use
and care precautions outlined in Probes and Biopsy.
CAUTION
Ultrasound transducers are sensitive instruments which can
easily be damaged by rough handling. Take extra care not to
drop transducers and avoid contact with sharp or abrasive
surfaces. A damaged housing, lens or cable can result in
patient injury or serious impairment or operation.
CAUTION
Ultrasound can produce harmful effects in tissue and
potentially result in patient injury. Always minimize exposure
time and keep ultrasound levels low when there is no medical
benefit. Use the principle of ALARA (As Low As Reasonably
Achievable), increasing output only when needed to obtain
diagnostic image quality. Observe the acoustic output display
and be familiar with all controls affecting the output level. See
the Bioeffects section of the Acoustic Output chapter in the
Advanced Reference Manual for more information.

synthetic material, the relative
humidity should be at least 30%.
Mains power quality should be that of
a typical commercial and/or hospital
environment. If the user requires
continued operation during power
mains interruptions, it is
recommended that the system be
powered from a UPS or a battery.
NOTE: UT is the a.c. mains voltage
prior to application of the test level.
Power frequency magnetic fields
should be at levels characteristic of a
typical location in a typical commercial
and/or hospital environment.
Separation distance to radio
communication equipment must be
maintained according to the method
below. Interference may occur in the
vicinity of equipment marked with the
symbol:
Image degradation or interference
may occur due to conducted RF noise
on the equipment mains power supply
or other signal cable. Such
interference is easily recognized and
distinguishable from patient anatomy
and physiological waveforms.
Interference of this type may delay the
examination without affecting
diagnostic accuracy. Additional mains/
signal RF isolation or filtering may be
needed if this type interference occurs
frequently.
NOTE: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by
absorption and reflection from structures, objects, and people. If noise generated from other electronic
equipment is near the probe’s center frequency, noise may appear on the image. Good power line isolation
is required.

Acoustic Output
Located on the upper right section of the system display monitor,
the acoustic output display provides the operator with real-time
indication of acoustic levels being generated by the system. See
the Acoustic Output chapter in the Advanced Reference Manual
for more information. This display is based on NEMA/AIUM
Standards for Real-time Display of Thermal and Mechanic
Acoustic Output Indices on Diagnostic Ultrasound Equipment.
Acoustic Output Display Specifications
The display consists of three parts: Thermal Index (TI),
Mechanical Index (MI), and a relative Acoustic Output (AO)
value. Although not part of the NEMA/AIUM standard, the AO
value informs the user of where the system is operating within
the range of available output.
The TI and MI are displayed at all times. The TI display starts at
a value of 0.0 and increments in steps of 0.1 The MI display
values between 0 and 0.4 increment in steps of 0.01 and for
values greater than 0.4, increments in steps of 0.1.
Thermal Index
4-30
Depending on the examination and type of tissue involved, the
TI parameter will be one of three types:
•
Soft Tissue Thermal Index (TIS). Used when imaging soft
tissue only, it provides an estimate of potential temperature
increase in soft tissue.
•
Bone Thermal Index (TIB). Used when bone is near the
focus of the image as in the third trimester OB examination,
it provides an estimate of potential temperature increase in
the bone or adjacent soft tissue.
•
Cranial Bone Thermal Index (TIC). Used when bone is
near the skin surface as in transcranial examination, it
provides an estimate of potential temperature increase in
the bone or adjacent soft tissue.

Acoustic Output Display Specifications (continued)
Mechanical Index
Changing the
Thermal Index
Type
MI recognizes the importance of non-thermal processes,
cavitation in particular, and the Index is an attempt to indicate
the probability that they might occur within the tissue.
You can select the displayed TI type on Utility -> Imaging -> BMode. This preset is application dependent so each application
could specify a different TI type.
Display precision is ±0.1 and accuracy is ±50%. Accuracy of the
power output displayed value on the Top/Sub Menu is ±2% in Band M-Modes and ±10% in all other modes.
Controls Affecting Acoustic Output
The potential for producing mechanical bioeffects (MI) or
thermal bioeffects (TI) can be influenced by certain controls.
Direct. The Acoustic Output control has the most significant
effect on Acoustic Output.
Indirect. Indirect effects may occur when adjusting controls.
Controls that can influence MI and TI are detailed under the
Bioeffects portion of each control in the Optimizing the Image
chapter.
Always observe the Acoustic Output display for possible effects.

Output
Hazard
Use the minimum necessary acoustic output to get the best
diagnostic image or measurement during an examination.
Begin the exam with the probe that provides an optimum focal
depth and penetration.
Acoustic Output Default Levels
In order to assure that an exam does not start at a high output
level, the LOGIQ e initiates scanning at a reduced default output
level. This reduced level is preset programmable and depends
upon the exam category and probe selected. It takes effect
when the system is powered on or New Patient is selected.
To modify acoustic output, adjust the Power Output level on the

Power Doppler Imaging (PDI) Mode
Intended Uses
Power Doppler Imaging (PDI) is a color flow mapping technique
used to map the strength of the Doppler signal coming from the
flow rather than the frequency shift of the signal. Using this
technique, the ultrasound system plots color flow based on the
number of reflectors that are moving, regardless of their velocity.
PDI does not map velocity, therefore it is not subject to aliasing.
