SeeDOS Ltd provide Medical Ultrasound Scanners and
This ultrasound equipment has a worldwide reputation as the leader
in prostate ultrasound, both for diagnostic purposes and
ultrasound-guided interventional procedures. We offer several specially
designed transrectal probes for prostate scanning.
Multiplane views of the
Our prostate transducers feature broad bandwidths, giving you detailed
imaging throughout the required depth.
Typical for these transducers (8808,
8551) is the ability to image the prostate in more than one plane.
8808, you can even view the image live in both the transverse and
longitudinal planes at the same time.
This allows you to visualize any area of the prostate
that you may wish to target for biopsy. It also makes volume studies
much easier, helping you determine whether biopsy will be necessary.
3-D reveals spatial
With our optional 3-D package, spatial relationships become even more
tangible. The image cube can be rendered, rotated, tilted and sliced to
produce any imaginable cut plane, and it can be reviewed by you and your
colleagues at your convenience.
3-D gives you significant advantages for precise
volume studies and for possible evaluation of tumour penetration outside
the prostate. Colour Doppler shows all the vascular structures in the
Harmonic imaging enhances your view
Most B-K Medical prostate probes are capable of tissue harmonic imaging
(True Echo Harmonics™) as a supplement to the conventional ultrasound
image. The harmonic view will typically show enhanced contrast and gray
tone differentiation. Added to the conventional image, this can give you
a better basis for your diagnosis.
Biplane imaging is the key
B-K Medical has been the market leader in ultrasound-guided
brachytherapy for many years. Our type
8658 transverse and sagittal biplane transducer was specially
developed for seed implantation in the prostate gland.
The 8658 is used together with a stepping unit and
matrix template to guide needle placement during seed implantation. The
8658 switches effortlessly between transverse and longitudinal views at
the touch of a button on the transducer handle. This makes it much
easier to monitor the placement of each needle.
The 8658's unique long linear crystal array makes it
possible to view the entire prostate, from base to apex, in a single
The 8658 is also the perfect choice for use during
high dose rate therapy (HDR).
