Ultrasound can advance neurosurgical procedures by helping you navigate and identify lesions and anatomical structures in real-time. The bk5000 provides immediate, auto-optimized images that allow you to see the information you need, faster.

Visualization and Planning
Neurosurgical intraoperative ultrasound works in real-time to help provide a complete overview of brain/lesion anatomy and lesion localization, and can assist in the identification of brain shift after pre-operative scans.

Tumor Resection: Evaluation
Intraoperative ultrasound helps surgeons spare eloquent areas of the brain during tumor resection surgery. Repeated ultrasound scans throughout surgery allow real-time guidance on resection extent, and brain tissue characterization can assist in the assessment of residual tumor remnants.

Shunt Placements
Intraoperative ultrasound helps to guide safe and quick shunt placements, with accurate detection and targeting of the ventricle in question. With our burr-hole transducer and single-use needle guides, shunt placements may be performed with one hand.

Transducers for Neurosurgery

The craniotomy transducer is ideal for guiding biopsy procedures, determining the adequacy of resection, and differentiating vascular malformation from adjacent hematoma.

The small footprint burr-hole transducer is designed to image the brain and guide procedures with precision.
