Verathon Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of imaging and respiratory medical device solutions, announced the launch of its new portable 3D ultrasound instrument: BladderScan Prime.
With all-new features like a touchscreen interface, live B-mode scanning, and onboard self-diagnostics, BladderScan Prime continues the brand’s long history of technological advancement, redefining accuracy and making use by clinicians and technicians easier than ever.
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 3‑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.
For more than 25 years, BladderScan instruments have been built to meet the demands of tough clinical settings. Assembled by hand in the USA, BladderScan devices are backed by a commitment to best-in-class service and warranty solutions, along with dedicated customer service teams.
