Verathon Introduces BladderScan Prime Portable 3-D Ultrasound

Unit offers 3-D quantification of the bladder with one touch while reducing the use of catheters

Verathon, BladderScan Prime, 3-D ultrasound

January 28, 2016 — Verathon Inc. announced the launch of its new portable 3-D ultrasound instrument: BladderScan Prime. New features on the system include a touch-screen interface, live B-mode scanning and onboard self diagnostics.

Prime is designed to help reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI) by reducing the use of catheters.

With one button press, Prime's VMODE technology acquires multiple scan planes inside the body, producing a three‑dimensional quantification of the bladder. Based on this quantification, the instrument automatically calculates and displays urinary bladder volume.

Promoting long and uninterrupted service, reliability is built into the BladderScan Prime system. For example, in the event of a drop, the Prime ultrasound probe has an internal mechanical diagnostic to confirm it's still working properly.

To boost accuracy among users of varying skill levels, BladderScan Prime provides simple and advanced aiming modes; immediate feedback for off-center scans and pubic bone interference; and onboard help/tutorial assistance available at any point in the exam.
