Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: The Clinical Value of Intraoperative Ultrasound

Posted by BK Medical on Dec 7, 2021 11:28:21 AM

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

Guiding Tumor Resections in Neurosurgery with Intraoperative Ultrasound: Prof. Geirmund Unsgård

Posted by BK Medical on Feb 5, 2020 2:18:19 PM

"Ultrasound is very important for tumor resection because of brain shift and the need to see residual tumor and the tumor border."

Recently, we introduced you to Prof. Geirmund Unsgård, Professor Emeritus of Neurosurgery at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). We have talked with Prof. Unsgård about using intraoperative ultrasound in neurosurgery and how the use of intraoperative ultrasound can help account for brain shift during neurosurgery. Today, we are talking with Professor Unsgård about the visualization and planning of tumor resection surgeries.
