Commonly found in acute care, long term care, and rehabilitation environments, bladder scanners can also be found in a number of physicians' offices. Bladder scanning has been found to be effective for use with patients suffering from diabetes, postoperative decreased urinary output, an enlarged prostate, a urethral stricture, spinal cord injuries, urinary incontinence, and many other conditions.
Bladder scanners utilize ultrasound technology to quickly and accurately measure bladder capacity and post-void residual (PVR) urine volume, reducing the need for catheterization. In addition to creating less work for medical professionals, reducing the need for urinary catheterization also reduces the risk of patients contracting a UTI during postoperative care.
The PadScan HD3 produces real-time, high resolution 3D ultrasound images and measures the urinary bladder volume quickly, safely, and automatically, all in a non-invasive manner. It requires no annual calibration due to patented core technology and utilizes the Caresono Bladder Scan Algorithm, the most cutting edge technology in bladder volume calculation. The small, compact design allows for easy operation and accuracy.
Capable of providing quick and accurate measurement for bladder volume and post-void residual (PVR) non-invasively on a wide range of patients, the Caresono PadScan HD2 Bladder Scanner is a handheld "pistol" style scanner. It helps assess urinary retention and post-operative urinary retention (POUR), prevents unnecessary catheterization, reduces rates of catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI), evaluates the need to catheterize during intermittent catheterization, and improves the efficiency of healthcare professionals by reducing costs and saving staff time.
The MDPro M4 3D Handheld Wireless Bladder Scanner provides the basis for clinical catheterization. It also evaluates the post-void residual after patient urination, helps confirm auxiliary diagnoses concerning bladder and kidney diseases, and can even help patients with a lower body disability or the loss of auto-urination function confirm the proper timing of urination. It can connect to phones, tablets, and PCs for added convenience and ease of use.
The Caresono MD5 Bladder Scanner provides precise bladder volume and PVR measurements in just a few seconds, making it ideally suited for urology departments, long term care and rehab facilities, hospitals, and mobile clinics. The MD5 boasts a ± 7.5% accuracy on volumes over 100 mL and expert mode allows clinicians to take advantage of tissue harmonic imaging for the most clear images possible. With no annual calibration requirement, it’s even more convenient and easy to use than other conventional scanners.
The Vitacon VitaScan PD Bladder Scanner is a stand-alone scanner that provides a high-quality imaging alternative in comparison to the old-style "blind scanners" that simply point users in the direction of the bladder. This ensures intuitive and accurate real-time images and allows for manual measurement with auto recalculation. The VitaScan PD also lets the user switch between simple and advanced scan modes to perform a multi-plane scan from one position on the body (3D) and is even capable of identifying and tracking bladder location.
