Why is Ultrasound used to scan the bladder?

Ultrasound is a proven technology based on reflections of ultrasonic waves. Ultrasound is used to non-invasively 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 acute care, rehabilitation, long-term care environments, urology and gynecology. It is a non-invasive alternative to bladder palpation and intermittent catheterization used to assess (initial) bladder volume, urinary retention and post-void residual volume (PVR).

Ultrasound bladder scanners are an important tool to reduce the Catheter Associated Urinary Tract Infection (CAUTI) and reduce the frequency of unnecessary catheterization.

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.

3D Bladder Scanning is Ideal for a Multitude of Clinical Environments:

  • Reduces unnecessary catheterizations and associated Urinary Tract Infections. CDC: Catheter-associated Urinary Tract Infections (CAUTI) (https://www.cdc.gov/HAI/ca_uti/uti.html/)
  • Automatic 3D scanning for fast and accurate bladder volumes.
  • Easy-to-use targeting and real-time scanning modes, ideal for non-specialists or experienced users.
  • Universal gender patient setting, gives an accurate reading whether the patient has had a hysterectomy or not.
  • Calibration not required; reducing time and cost of annual maintenance.
  • Touchscreen interface enhances procedure simplicity.
  • Lightweight ultra-portable design.
  • Easy point-and-freeze operation provides results in less than 5 seconds.
  • High-capacity internal memory for saving patient data.
  • PC upload application software for massed data storage and EMR integration via DICOM/PACS.
  • Simple-to-use; ergonomically designed probe.
