Transducer blends biplane, endfire prostate imaging

Wilmington, MA-The slim 8818 transrectal transducer from B-K Medical Systems combines simultaneous biplane and endfire imaging for taking precise biopsies in any part of the prostate. Users can switch between scanning views and can choose the plane in which to take a biopsy. A dual biopsy guide contains needle channels for both types of imaging so all biopsies can be taken during the same insertion. The endfire biopsy channel ensures the shortest distance to the prostate apex, preventing surrounding tissue damage. Features include high-resolution images, ergonomic design, disposable biopsy guides and sterile covers, compatibility with modern sterilization methods, additional tools for tissue harmonic imaging, contrast imaging, 3D and volume render mode, and compatibility with Pro Focus 2202 and Viking 2400 ultrasound scanners.
