This new, disposable endocavity needle guide for use with Ultrasonix EC9-5 transducer. The EC9-5 biopsy guide is engineered to direct minimally invasive instruments by following on-screen guidelines, providing the imaging professional a fixed path of guidance and a standard of precision in biopsy procedures. The use of a needle guide aids in procedural efficiencies and patient comfort, leading to better patient care. Packaged in convenient procedure kits, CIVCO’s easy-to-use needle guide snaps securely to the transducer locating features, guiding instruments according to on-screen guidelines. The robust over-molded design of the needle guide features zero needle resistance offering smooth movement and navigation and increased patient safety during puncture procedures. The single piece design of this endocavity guide features a large funnel for instrument insertion and will not compromise cover integrity during set-up. The disposable design of the guide reduces the risks associated with cross-contamination and aids in easy clean-up between procedures. CIVCO’s needle guide accepts 16-18 gauge instruments.
