Cook releases Goldstein SonoBiopsy catheter
Interventional device developer Cook Medical has launched the Goldstein SonoBiopsy catheter, which combines saline infusion sonohysterography (SIS) and biopsy functionality in a single device. The product allows physicians to fill the uterus with saline solution, enabling better echo-resonance of the uterine cavity during an ultrasound.

The new device provides physicians with the increased visibility offered by a sonohysterography during a diagnostic image ultrasound and the ability to biopsy endometrial tissue during the same procedure. In addition, the Goldstein SonoBiopsy catheter eliminates the need to introduce additional instruments into the patient’s body and reduces the incidence for multiple procedures, according to the Spencer, Ind.-based firm.
