Ultrasound System Aids MRI Prostate Biopsy

System utilizes prostate imaging probe for precise targeting and delivery

February 18, 2015 — Sonus Imaging developed a new, advanced ultrasound system for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) targeted prostate ultrasound biopsy. The Enovare uro ultrasound system uses proprietary iVue and Xact grid technology, which provides needle placement with precision targeting and delivery.

Unlike other MRI fusion workstations that use electromagnetic tracking for probe position, which is subject to registration errors, the Enovare uro does not use electromagnetic sensors to estimate the correct site of the abnormal area to undergo biopsy. This functionality is achieved through Sonus Imaging’s proprietary software and prostate imaging probe.

The Enovare uro Ultrasound System is all-inclusive, with no separate workstation required.

The system is compatible with all MRI systems without any extra software being added or purchased for the MRI system itself. Other features include a 23-inch-wide LED True HD 1080p display for MRI targeted ultrasound biopsy, LDR, HDR and focal therapy.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
