Ultrasound Platform Supports Needle-Guidance System

November 11, 2009 - CIVCO Medical Solutions announces the release of a disposable endocavity needle-guidance system for use with Toshiba’s PVT-681MV transducer.

The PVT-681MV needle-guidance system is designed to direct minimally invasive instruments by working in conjunction with biopsy software on Toshiba Aplio XG, Xario and Xario XG ultrasound platforms. CIVCO’s endocavity needle-guidance system offer physicians reduced technique variability, providing a shorter learning curve and reduced procedure time – increasing productivity during tissue biopsy, fluid aspirations and catheter placement.

The disposable design of CIVCO’s PVT-681MV endocavity needle guide is designed to reduce the risks associated with cross-contamination and aids in easy clean-up between procedures. This new guide provides finger grips, allowing easy assembly and removal from the transducer, while also providing a secure and stable fit to the transducer locating features. The guide features zero needle resistance, offering smooth movement and navigation during puncture procedures. In addition, the PVT-681MV needle guide is equipped with a large funnel style insertion point for quick instrument insertion in a darkened ultrasound suite. The needle guide accepts 16-18 gauge instruments.
