Real-time, USB bladder scanner for the non-invasive measurement of urinary bladder volume.


- Overview

Scanmaster is an easy to use, non-invasive, real-time USB 3D ultrasound bladder scanner that measures bladder volume and post-void residual (PVR). The Scanmaster 3D ultrasound probe connects to any computer running a Windows operating system.

Scanmaster can be integrated with LABORIE urodynamic systems (Nexam Pro, Solar, Solar Blue), offering a total solution where PVR and bladder images are integrated into the urodynamic report. It can also be added to Flowmaster (wireless uroflowmeter), for integrated PVR measurement and automatic storage of the results.

Some LABORIE products may not be available in certain regions.

+ 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 then is 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.
