BIOPSY WITH CONFIDENCE
Fusing powerful real-time ultrasound images with pre-exam MRI data gives you better guidance to help accurately target lesions detected on the MRI images, potentially reducing the risk of missing high-grade tumors or under-staging tumors for active surveillance.
FAST AND INTUITIVE
bkFusion offers an easy and familiar workflow to make prostate biopsy procedures in either the free-hand transrectal or the transperineal approach as efficient as possible
The urologist maintains control of the entire procedure and can freely adjust ultrasound gain and depth or choose to scan in different planes (transverse, sagittal, and endfire) to better target areas of concern, without the need to resweep or recalibrate during procedures.
ONE INTEGRATED SYSTEM WITH UNMATCHED IMAGE QUALITY
ONE INTEGRATED SYSTEM
Single-system footprint with simultaneous display of MRI and real-time ultrasound images on one monitor.
UNMATCHED IMAGE QUALITY
Quickly identify lesions and perform targeted biopsies using images with high spatial, temporal, and contrast resolution.
REDUCE PROCEDURE STEPS AND MINIMIZE REGISTRATION ERRORS
Predictive Fusion® is an advanced technology that improves the registration process and increases MRI/Ultrasound fusion accuracy by eliminating the need to draw prostate contours on the ultrasound image. Adjust gain, depth, and scanning planes (transverse and sagittal, sidefire, and endfire) without recalibrating alignment.
Predictive Fusion® allows you to adjust and correct potential registration errors before taking a biopsy and is designed to fit your traditional biopsy workflow, requiring minimal extra steps and providing a fusion you can trust.
The bkFusion workflow utilizes rigid registration and a unique algorithm called Predictive Fusion® to reorient prostate's position on the MRI image into a more natural ultrasound position before the patient’s procedure.
Transrectal Fusion Biopsies
- Can be performed in an office setting
- Lower procedure cost
- Free-hand biopsy procedure
- Electromagnetic field used to track the position of the transducer
Transperineal Fusion Biopsies
- Fully integrated into a standard transperineal prostate biopsy procedure
- Normally performed in an OR
- Typically under general anesthesia
- Stepper used to hold and track the transducer
