When performing a laparoscopic cholecystectomy, intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) is a good alternative to intraoperative cholangiography because it provides a fast, safe, and repeatable means of visualizing the procedure, with clear details and soft tissue delineation. Read on to learn more about the uses and benefits of laparoscopic intraoperative ultrasound when compared with other methods.
Unlike intraoperative cholangiography, iUS is non-radiating, which helps reduce radiation hazards to patients and staff. iUS has also been shown to be completed more rapidly than IOC, with one study reporting a laparoscopic ultrasound duration of 9.8 minutes versus 17.6 minutes for IOC.1

When you are looking for a way to visualize anatomy and guide your procedure during laparoscopic hepatobiliary surgeries, use real-time active imaging. The combination of intraoperative imaging and BK Medical’s new Advanced Laparoscopic Transducer (I13C3f*) helps guide your procedures and support decision-making. Designed with an ergonomic handle, the fully sterilizable transducer features Smart Button™ for complete control, dual needle channels, and integrated needle guidance for biopsy and ablation. Overall, the Advanced Laparoscopic Transducer is designed for enhanced visualization and guidance in laparoscopic hepatobiliary procedures.
