CIVCO Medical Instruments has engineered both general purpose and endocavity needle guidance systems compatible with Siemens’ new SONOLINE G40 ultrasound system. The Ultra-Pro II needle guidance systems for use in general purpose procedures, utilize a two-part system consisting of a custom reusable, multi-angled biopsy bracket and a disposable snap-on needle guide for use on the CH5-2 and VF10-5 transducers that direct instruments according to on-screen system software guidelines. Additionally, the Ultra-Pro II features a quick-release mechanism, allowing the guide to be released quickly and easily from the transducer while maintaining secure needle placement. The needle guide snaps securely into locating features on the biopsy bracket offering imaging professionals a fixed path for visualizing ultrasound-guided instrument placement procedures for optimum ease of operation and accurate positioning in image-guided biopsy and drainage procedures. CIVCO also offers endocavity needle guidance systems for use on the EC9-4 and EV9-4 transducers.
