+ Clinical Information



Ultrasound is a proven technology based on reflections of ultrasonic waves. Ultrasound is used to noninvasively visualize, monitor and perform measurements in the human body.

For bladder volume measurements, the bladder is differentiated from surrounding tissues by ultrasonic reflections. Its volume is then calculated based on bladder wall detection and a clinically tested algorithm.

Ultrasound bladder scanners are commonly used in the acute care, rehabilitation, long-term care environments, urology and gynecology. It is a noninvasive alternative to bladder palpation and intermittent catheterization used to assess (initial) bladder volume, urinary retention, and post-void residual volume.

LABORIE is passionate about bringing freedom and dignity to patients suffering from pelvic floor disorders through innovation in diagnostic and treatment options. We work with leading clinician-researchers and local universities to incorporate the most recent advancements and technical knowledge into our products while reflecting practical realities of the typical pelvic floor clinic.
