FDA Approves SonixGPS Needle Guidance Technology For Vascular Access Procedures

Ultrasound technology improves the speed and safety of difficult procedures

 

July 11, 2012

Ultrasonix Medical Corporation has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its SonixGPS technology for vascular access procedures.

SonixGPS helps clearly predict and see the needle’s trajectory during invasive procedures. Unlike other guidance technologies, SonixGPS enables clinicians to position the transducer in the ideal location to see the target and to select a needle direction and angle that is safest and most comfortable for the patient.  It always shows the predicted trajectory and true path of the needle in real time. Needle adjustments are reflected instantly on the display.

SonixGPS has received CE mark for both nerve blocks and vascular access. SonixGPS for nerve block procedures is pending FDA 510(k). The SonixGPS option is available on the SonixTouch, SonixTablet and SonixMDP ultrasound systems.
