Dr. Steen Karstrup
Copenhagen University Hospital
Department of Diagnostic Radiology
Case: 2D Renal Ultrasound
Featured Product: eTRAX Needle Tip Tracking System
CONSIDERATION FOR USE
Patient underwent percutaneous nephrostomy. Electromagnetic needle tip tracking allowed continuous visualization of the needle pathway for safe and easy insertion into the kidney.
EQUIPMENT FOR EXAMINATION
GE Healthcare LOGIQ E9 with Volume Navigation
CIVCO eTRAX Needle Tip Tracking
APPROACH TO EXAMINATION
Two-dimensional ultrasound image demonstrates the real-time potential to visualization of the needle trajectory prior to insertion. This function allows ideal entry point selection for penetration into the kidney. This capability allows the ideal entry point selection for safe penetration into the kidney.
Two-dimensional ultrasound demonstrates the trajectory of the needle pathway, allowing visualization of the ideal entry angle of penetration to reach the target.
