Biopsy Guide Engineered to Direct Minimally Invasive Instruments

A 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 the 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.
