B-K Medical introduces new prostate transducer

B-K Medical has launch a new transrectal prostate transducer, the 8818, which combines the functionality of simultaneous biplane and endfire transducers in one device.

The 8818 transducer is designed to help urologists examine any prostate in any plane for prostate ultrasound examinations and biopsies, according to the Herlev, Denmark-based firm. It includes a unique dual-biopsy guide to facilitate biopsies in all sections of the prostate.

With the dual-biopsy guide that contains needle channels for both simultaneous biplane and endfire imaging, urologists can perform biopsies with only one guide and one-time insertion of the probe into the patient.

B-K Medical is a wholly owned subsidiary of Analogic in Peabody, MA.
