Whether you are performing open or minimally invasive surgery, intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) provides real-time visualization when you need it most.

Featuring the most advanced imaging technology ever from BK Medical, bkActiv is an intraoperative ultrasound solution that supports critical decision-making at every step of your procedure.

Support Critical Decision-Making at Every Step of Your Hepatic Resection


Let us take a look at how active imaging can help in the beginning, middle, and end stages of hepatic resections whether performed open, laparoscopic, or robotic-assisted.

  • During the staging process of hepatic resections, intraoperative ultrasound helps surgeons visualize complex anatomical structures and variations.
  • During the planning process of hepatic resections, the solution helps surgeons visualize and identify intrahepatic vasculature, visualize tumor location, and visualize the relationship of the tumor to critical vascular structures.
  • Through the guiding and intervention phases of hepatic resection surgery, iUS helps surgeons confirm tumor borders and determine resection paths.
  • Lastly, during the validation stage of hepatic resection surgery, intraoperative ultrasound helps surgeons assess completeness of resection and visualize blood supply to the remnant liver.

Activating real-time intraoperative ultrasound with bkActiv can provide more confidence to critical decision-making for HPB and general surgeons. Step into the new era of intraoperative ultrasound with bkActiv.
