New products: CIVCO, NEC
CIVCO Medical Solutions has released its newest needle guidance system for Siemens Medical Solutions, the 17L5 HD. The ergonomic 17L5 HD multi-angle needle guidance system is designed to work in conjunction with biopsy software on Siemens ACUSON Sequoia ultrasound platform to provide detailed imaging of small parts, breast, and subtle pathologies. CIVCO’s needle guidance systems utilize a two-part system consisting of a custom reusable biopsy bracket and a disposable snap-on needle guide. Together, these tools offer physicians reduced technique variability, providing a shorter learning curve and reduced procedure time. This needle guidance system is designed to increase the productivity of ultrasound-guided procedures including tissue biopsy, fluid aspirations and catheter placement. In addition, the single-use design of the Ultra-Pro II needle guide reduces the risk of cross-contamination and increases patient throughput.
