Ultrasound Needle Guides in Biopsy Procedures

Needle guidance is clinically proven to lead to more confident outcomes in ultrasound-guided biopsies

Needle guidance is clinically proven to lead to more confident outcomes in ultrasound-guided biopsies:

  • Improved needle visualization1,2,3
  • Reduced procedure time2,3,4,5,6
  • Reproducible procedure technique with better tissue yield2,4

Utilization of a needle guide for ultrasound-guided interventions improves needle visualization and procedure efficiency in deep-seated and superficial biopsy targets and endocavity procedures.

  • Deep: Liver, Kidney, Stomach, Abdominal Organs
  • Superficial: Thyroid, Breast, Lymph Nodes

CIVCO's disposable needle guides attach to your ultrasound probe via a custom-designed, reusable bracket or a direct-attach feature built on the probe.
