    Therapy & Interventional

    Interventional settings require dedicated features and solutions that allow the accurate treatment of any type of patient. Esaote is committed to providing the shortest and most effective path to patient care.

Ultrasound in Surgery: Intraoperative Dedicated Probe

“Intraoperative ultrasound is essential for planning the type of resection and for guiding surgeon’s hands in real time during liver parenchyma dissection. This is relevant for the effectiveness and safety of surgical treatments.”
Guido Torzilli, MD, PhD, FACS, Ultrasound-Guided Liver Surgery, an Atlas, 2014

Esaote offers a complete range of ultrasound systems and innovative T-shape intra-operative probes to maximize the performance of surgical procedures.

IOT342: A probe designed by a surgeon for surgeons

Esaote has designed a new generation of ultrasound probes, the iQprobes, developed with new materials and methods to get the maximum spatial resolution and highest image depth. The new iQprobes’s performance combined with the new appleprobe design concept, allow physicians to carry out extremely comfortable and ergonomic examinations. This technology and design concept has led Esaote to develop IOT342, a new intra-operative T probe featuring a Tp-View enlarged field of view, wider frequency range, compact profile and ergonomic grip, fit to perform compression maneuver. A probe conceived for surgeons.

Top performance in Surgical Liver Ultrasound

IOT342 is a new wide multi-band frequency probe that allows to explore every section of the liver, both superficial and deeper ones, while using advanced applications like CnTI (Esaote’s Contrast Tuning Imaging) and ElaXto (Esaote’s Elastosonography). IOT342 has an enhanced scanning plan compared to contact surface and is more stable than convex probes. Its size and ergonomic design are suitable to perform compression maneuvers, offer different handing methods and allow to reach very narrow spaces.
The innovative T-shape intra-operative probe IOT342 offers:

  • High quality B-Mode imaging
  • High sensitivity Color Doppler and XFlow
  • ElaXto to evaluate tissue elasticity
  • CnTI to perform contrast enhanced exams

The IOT Probe is also a tool for guiding surgical maneuvers within a new, revolutionary surgical liver approach.

Clinical Targets:

  • Detection, localization and characterization of the lesions
  • Mapping of the vascular path
  • Planning of the most convenient surgical approach

Making surgery more easy and effective: Visualize, Characterize and Plan!

TEI, XView and MView improve image quality by reducing speckle noise and artefacts, which can be particularly marked in the intraoperative setting.
