Infiniti by Civco
February 19, 2010 - Needle guidance systems are used in imaging applications to shorten procedure time and increase accuracy.
A new needle guidance system, the Infiniti needle guidance system is designed for use with GE Healthcare 11L, 11L-D, 12L-RS and 12L-SC transducers. GE’s transducers, coupled with the Infiniti needle guidance system, are designed to offer a safe, reliable and efficient tool to increase clinical confidence in ultrasound-guided procedures such as regional anesthesia, musculoskeletal injections, blocks and vascular access for emerging markets.
The Needle Guidance System utilizes a two-part system, consisting of a custom reusable biopsy bracket and disposable snap-on needle guide with sterile CIV-Flex transducer cover. The Infiniti needle guide offers multiple angle capabilities for shallow or deep access. The open channel design of the needle guide allows instruments to be positioned in the scan plane, providing a safe, efficient means for ultrasound-guided puncture procedures. The needle guide attaches to the reusable bracket and accepts 14 and 18 gauge or 20, 21/22 and 25 gauge instruments. Replacement kits include needle guide, transducer cover, gel packet and colored elastic bands.
