BK Medical Showcases Flex Focus 700 Ultrasound System

August 29, 2011 – BK Medical will showcase its Flex Focus 700 ultrasound system and BK Power Pack at the 13th World Congress of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) in Vienna, Austria, Aug. 26-29, 2011.

The system has been very well received since its initial introduction for surgery. The BK Power Pack is a full back-up power solution for the Flex Focus family of ultrasound systems that ensures plug-free imaging for up to four hours, allowing improvements to workflow and potential reductions in patient wait times.

“We use the BK Medical ultrasound systems in interventional radiology primarily for intraoperative guidance to perform ablation and biopsy procedures,” said Brooke Jeffrey, Jr., M.D., section chief, abdominal imaging, Department of Radiology, Stanford University Medical Center. BK Medical has a comprehensive range of innovative, unique transducers that address the specialized needs and clinical challenges of interventional radiologists worldwide. As an example, the high-resolution biplane transducer 8824, with simultaneous imaging in transverse and longitudinal planes, gives precise anatomic and location information needed for needle guidance and multiple interventional procedures.

BK Medical’s IQPAC technology, used in the Flex Focus 700 and 400 systems, and the Pro Focus Ultraview, provides high quality diagnostic images for all patient types. The IQPAC technology combines the company’s proprietary enhanced tissue definition and angular compound imaging technologies to optimize the ultrasound image. As a result, contrast resolution is improved and the tissue margins are more easily visualized. Together, these two technologies enable improved border definition and reduced speckle noise in the image, resulting in improved image quality.

BK Medical recently introduced Advanced Robotic Ultrasound Technology (ART), a complete ultrasound imaging solution for robotic surgery that includes the Flex Focus 700, specialized transducers and tools designed specifically for robotic-assisted surgery. The premium performance ultrasound solution may benefit surgeons performing robotic-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP) procedures and robotic-assisted partial nephrectomy (RAPN) procedures.
