A New Ultrasound Tool To Image The Most Delicate Parts Of The Body
Ultrasound technology has revolutionized imaging the world over. Yet despite the miraculous pictures generated by Ultrasound, there are certain parts of the body that are difficult to see. This becomes critically important in circumstances such as epidurals, amniocentesis, breast reconstructive surgery, and procedures behind bone or other ultrasonic obstructions. Needle Vision, Inc. is developing forward looking ultrasound needles using the patented VARS technology.
Needle Vision will offer the clinician a new ultrasound attachment. Rather than only having a wand style ultrasound that is limited to the outside of the body, the forward looking ultrasound needles can be inserted to the affected area for more precise viewing and delivering of anesthetic or other treatment as necessary
A new tool to image the most delicate parts of the body!.
"The opportunities are significant, particularly since a major percentage of our target device market is unaware that an imaging needle approach could solve their clinical guidance problems."
