Portascan™ 3D Bladder Scanner's intuitive design is ideal for a multitude of clinical environments, from hospital floors to physician offices. Different scanning modes are designed to match different user preferences along with advanced targeting features that make finding the bladder simple. Portascan 3D provides reliable information, thus reducing the frequency of catheterization and risk of UTIs (CAUTI). It is also a valuable tool for providing post-void residual volume (PVR) to assess possible urinary retention.

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.
