The LOGIQ P3 is an economical, compact console ultrasound system offering surprising performance that can help clinicians deliver advanced imaging to OB/GYN practices. GE Healthcare has migrated robust features sets as CrossXBeamTM from more advanced LOGIQ systems, which enables the LOGIQ P3 to provide excellent performance. The LOGIQ P3 feature set is well-suited for OB applications and the system is compatible with the most frequently used LOGIQ obstetric transducers. Its lightweight and ergonomic design is small enough to easily maneuver to exam rooms and its robust workflow capabilities also help clinicians meet emerging digital information requirements for healthcare providers.
