Files with the 4DV extension are ultrasound image files created by the Voluson ultrasound machine. GE Healthcare, the manufacturer of the Voluson machine, offers a free application, titled 4DView that can be used to open and view these files. This application can be downloaded from the VolusonClub website and installed on Windows-based computers.

Step 1

Open your web browser and navigate to the VolusonClub website. (See Resources.)

Step 2

Click the "Download 4DViewSetup.exe" link to download the software that will install 4DView on your computer. Be sure to remember where you saved this file.

Step 3

Open Windows Explorer and browse to the folder where you saved the installation file. Double-click the file to run the program.

Step 4

Follow the on-screen prompts to install the software. Be sure to choose the "Free de-featured version" if you simply want to view the 4DV files.

Open Windows Explorer and browse to the folder containing the 4DV file you wish to view. Double-click the file to open it with the 4DView application.
