CIVCO Medical Solutions has released three needle guidance systems for use with Ultrasonix transducers. The L14-5W/60, L14-5/38 / L9-4/38 and C7-3/50 / C5-2/60 single-angle needle guidance systems are designed to work in conjunction with biopsy software on Ultrasonix’ Sonix CEP, Sonix OP, Sonix SP and Sonix RP ultrasound platforms, providing physicians with increased productivity during ultrasound-guided procedures including tissue biopsy, fluid aspirations and catheter placement. CIVCO’s needle guidance systems offer physicians reduced technique variability, providing a shorter learning curve and reduced procedure time.
The needle guidance systems use a two-part system consisting of a custom reusable biopsy bracket and the Ultra-Pro II disposable snap-on needle guide. The Ultra-Pro II needle guide now incorporates more flexibility and advanced features to increase productivity during ultrasound-guided procedures. The needle guide directs instruments according to on-screen software guidelines and features a larger tab for improved quick-release function.
