Analogic Enters Agreement to Distribute Prostate Guidance Solution

Analogic to offer D&K's BioJet Fusion system with Flex Focus ultrasound for precise, targeted prostate biopsies

Analogic Corp. BK Flex Focus D&K Technologies BioJet Solution Prostate Biopsy

May 2, 2014 — Analogic Corp. has entered into a distribution agreement with D&K Technologies, developer of the BioJet Solution, a revolutionary 3-D magnetic resonance imagining (MRI) transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) fusion technology. Analogic will distribute the BioJet system for use with its BK Flex Focus ultrasound systems, for assistance during precise, targeted prostate biopsies, in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Great Britain, Luxemburg, North America, Sweden Switzerland and The Netherlands.

The BioJet Fusion system overlays real-time ultrasound images from the BK Flex Focus ultrasound system with MRI identified lesions to provide real-time guidance during prostate biopsies. Analogic's European launch of this advanced technology for MRI/ultrasound fusion guided biopsies took place at the 29th Annual European Association of Urology (EAU) Congress in Stockholm, Sweden, April 11-15.

The combination of the Flex Focus and BioJet offers a complete system that will support both transperineal and transrectal biopsy methods. The BK endocavity biplane transducer (8848) is ideal for transperineal fusion biopsies. In addition, there are two options for transrectal fusion biopsies — the BK triplane (8818) and BK biplane transducer (8808e). Data is easily imported and exported allowing for a more convenient working process between urologists and radiologists.

Comprehensive biopsy reports contain fused MRI and ultrasound images, and biopsy cores. The complete system is simple to use with an intuitive user interface that includes easy contouring and fine-tuning, designed specifically for busy urology practices. Finally, the Flex Focus with the BioJet system has a small footprint, enabling it to fit into tight spaces in a clinic or practice.
