New transducers designed for prostate, pelvic floor scanning

B-K Medical (Wilmington, MA) has launched at this week's AUA annual meeting two new transducers with applications for prostate examination, brachytherapy, and pelvic floor scanning in women.

A new transrectal prostate transducer, the 8818, combines the functionality of simultaneous biplane and endfire transducers in one. The device enables urologists to examine any prostate in any plane, and includes a dual-biopsy guide that facilitates biopsies in all sections of the prostate. The dual-biopsy guide allows urologists to perform prostate biopsies with a single guide and one-time insertion of the probe into the patient, according to B-K Medical.

The 8848 transducer, together with the company's Medical Pro Focus scanner, provides a clear, detailed image of the prostate, allowing for greater ease of use and accuracy in volume studies and source-dose planning for brachytherapy. A long linear array allows imaging from the base to the apex. The 8848 also provides a dynamic examination of the pelvic floor region of women, enabling a physician to see the position of organs while the patient rests and coughs or strains. It is excellent for post-surgical scanning to ensure that tension-free vaginal tapes and meshes are correctly placed and working, the company said.
