VerzaLink provides first-of-its-kind, direct-attach design for improved ultrasound guidance
CORALVILLE, Iowa, May 30, 2017 /CNW/ -- VerzaLink™, the new frontier in ultrasound guidance by CIVCO Medical Solutions was revealed on the first transducer from a leading ultrasound manufacturer at the Japan Society of Ultrasonics in Medicine (JSUM) on May 26, 2017.
VerzaLink, a proprietary locating feature designed into the ultrasound transducer, eliminates the need for a custom bracket attachment and provides an ideal profile and position on the ultrasound probe. The system's enhanced retention force ensures optimal guide stability for improved accuracy. Additionally, VerzaLink simplifies workflow for the clinician with easier set-up and dismantle.
The Verza™ guidance system is designed to deliver unmatched versatility, improved user experience, and confident clinical outcomes for diagnostic and therapeutic ultrasound-guided interventions.
"Verza and VerzaLink were developed with input from leading clinicians around the world, with a goal of making ultrasound-guided interventions simpler while expanding the clinical utility of ultrasound guidance systems," said Alexas Swartz, Director of Marketing at CIVCO. "We believe Verza, in combination with leading ultrasound equipment, will significantly enhance the clinician's experience using guides."
The Verza system was developed to meet the needs of clinicians accustomed to fixed-angle guidance, as well as those who prefer a free-hand technique. Offering a selection of five potential approach angles, the Verza guide provides an optimal pathway for a wide assortment of anatomical targets. With 14 instrument inserts, ranging in size from 25 gauge to 12 French, Verza provides compatibility with the market's largest range of interventional devices.
Building on the improvements of previous CIVCO offerings such as Infiniti Plus™ and the Ultra Pro™ family of products, Verza delivers improved flexibility, optimal stability, increased accuracy and more efficient functionality while minimizing blind zone and unguided needle length. All of this provides the benefits of decreased procedure time and fewer complications resulting from poor instrument visibility.
Verza was first released in November for Toshiba ultrasound transducers i18LX5, i24LX8, i8C1, and i8CX1 on the iAplio iSeries i700, i800, and i900 systems as a bracketed guidance system.
