AccuCARE Disposable Template Grids
For use with AccuCARE™ Positioning and Stabilizing Equipment. Only CIVCO template
grids are validated for use with CIVCO stepping equipment.
For use during procedures such as:
Fiducial marker placement
Other template-guided procedures
The template grids consist of rows and columns of holes spaced 3mm apart (14 GA grids) and 5mm apart (17 and 18 GA grids), providing accurate placement of radioactive seeds in predefined areas of the prostate. The single-use grid is sold sterile and provides a cost-effective solution. The disposable option eliminates the need for messy, labor-intensive cleaning, soaking, and re-sterilization while reducing the risk of bio-burden or residual chemical contamination. The grids accept 14, 17, and 18 GA Needles.
Enables systematic biopsy of the prostate through the perineum during targeted biopsy procedures1
Template graphics (5mm spacing) align with planning software, enabling appropriate targeting of identified anatomical region of interest within the prostate4
