CIVCO has released a new guidance system for use with Siemens’ 9L4 transducer. The 9L4 multi-angle needle guidance system is designed to work in conjunction with biopsy software on Siemens’ ACUSON SequoiaTM ultrasound platform, 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. Siemens’ 9L4 needle guidance system utilizes a two-part system consisting of a custom reusable biopsy bracket and the Ultra-Pro IITM 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.
