Expanding the Utilization of Intraoperative Ultrasound in Your Daily Practice

Posted by BK Medical on Feb 27, 2024 1:22:21 PM

BK Medical continues to encourage and support surgeons incorporating intraoperative ultrasound (iUS) into their daily practice. We are committed to developing innovative ultrasound technology that provides high-resolution images in real time for soft tissue visualization. As iUS grows in popularity in cranial surgery, BK Medical is simultaneously working on improving our utilization in a variety of spinal procedures, ranging from tumor resections to minimally invasive fusion surgery.1

The Use of Intraoperative Ultrasound During a Robotic Caudal Pancreatectomy with Splenic Preservation

A neuroendocrine tumor (NET) is a rare type of tumor that can occur anywhere in the pancreas. Diagnosis and treatment of NETs depend on the type of tumor, its location, whether it produces excess hormones, how aggressive it is and whether it has spread to other parts of the pancreas.1

Dr. Marcos Belotto, Robotic Surgery Specialist at Celebration Florida Hospital, recently used a bk5000 ultrasound system during a pancreatic surgery case to help him locate a neuroendocrine tumor. Dr. Belotto has a PhD in Surgery from Hospital Sírio Libanês and a Masters of Surgery from Santa Casa de São Paulo.

Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy: The Clinical Value of Intraoperative Ultrasound

Posted by BK Medical on Dec 7, 2021 10:28:21 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
