Posted by BK Medical on Jul 12, 2021 10:45:00 AM

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.

Operate with Comfort and Control

Take advantage of the transducer’s ergonomic handle and lightweight design, which makes the transducer easy to hold and provides comfort during longer procedures. The improved rocker switch lets you operate your active imaging with more controlled tip movement and firm organ contact while the new Smart Button™ allows for two programmable controls.

Dual Needle Guidance and Patented Laser Technology

The transducer also provides dual needle channels and integrated needle guidance with a laser feature. The proprietary dual needle channel design enables greater freedom of maneuverability and allows for the preferred insertion angle on up to two needles simultaneously, while the patented laser feature allows the user to plan and target tumor biopsies and ablations with visual aid.
