This manual contains necessary and sufficient information to operate the system safely. Advanced equipment training may be provided by a factory trained Applications Specialist for the agreed-upon time period.
Read and understand all instructions in this manual before attempting to use the LOGIQ e system.
Keep this manual with the equipment at all times. Periodically review the procedures for operation and safety precautions.
LOGIQ e documentation consists of three manuals:
• The Basic User Manual (TRANSLATED) and Online Help (TRANSLATED) provides information needed by the user to operate the system safely. It describes the basic functions of the system, safety features, operating modes, measurements/calculations, probes, and user care and maintenance.
NOTE: Probe information displayed on screen examples does not necessarily reflect the probes available on your ultrasound system. Please refer to the Probes chapter for a listing of available probes and features.
• The Advanced Reference Manual (ENGLISH ONLY) contains data tables, such as OB and Acoustic Output tables.
• The Quick Guide (TRANSLATED) provides descriptions of basic system features and operation. It is intended to be used in conjunction with the Basic User Manual in order to provide the information necessary to operate the system safely. Quick Cards may also be provided with additional feature information.
• The User Guide is a condensed user instruction guide (translated into Swedish, Danish, Russian, Greek, Dutch, Finnish, Norwegian, and Polish).
• AIUM Booklet
NOTE: The documentation kit provides the Quick Guide and Release
Notes on paper and electronically and the Basic User Manual and Advanced Reference Manual are only provided in electronic format. The media includes English and all translations. Paper documentation may be ordered by using a form in the Quick Guide.
The LOGIQ e manuals are written for users who are familiar with basic ultrasound principles and techniques. They do not include sonographic training or detailed clinical procedures.
Principles of Operation
Medical ultrasound images are created by computer and digital memory from the transmission and reception of mechanical high-frequency waves applied through a transducer. The mechanical ultrasound waves spread through the body, producing an echo where density changes occur. For example, in the case of human tissue, an echo is created where a signal passes from an adipose tissue (fat) region to a muscular tissue region. The echoes return to the transducer where they are converted back into electrical signals.
These echo signals are highly amplified and processed by several analog and digital circuits having filters with many frequency and time response options, transforming the high frequency electrical signals into a series of digital image signals which are stored in memory. Once in memory, the image can be displayed in real-time on the image monitor. All signal transmission, reception and processing characteristics are controlled by the main computer. By selection from the system control panel, the user can alter the characteristics and features of the system, allowing a wide range of uses, from obstetrics to peripheral vascular examinations.
Transducers are accurate, solid-state devices, providing multiple image formats. The digital design and use of solid-state components provides highly stable and consistent imaging performance with minimal required maintenance. Sophisticated design with computer control offers a system with extensive features and functions which is user-friendly and easy to use.
Indications for Use
The LOGIQ e is intended for use by a qualified physician for ultrasound evaluation. Specific clinical applications and exam types include:
• Abdominal (including GYN)
• Small Organ (including breast, testes, thyroid)
• Neonatal Cephalic
• Adult Cephalic
• Cardiac (adult and pediatric)
• Peripheral Vascular
• Intraoperative (abdominal, thoracic and peripheral)
• Musculo-skeletal Conventional
• Urology (including prostate)
This machine should be used in compliance with law. Some jurisdictions restrict certain uses, such as gender determination.
The LOGIQ e ultrasound system is not intended for ophthalmic use or any use causing the acoustic beam to pass through the eye.
CAUTION: United States law restricts this device to sale or use by, or on the order of a physician.
