Interventional Ultrasound Application for Endocrinology
Esaote plays a fundamental role in the management of thyroid neoplasm and in particular in the management of recurring neck problems after thyroidectomy.
Esaote MyLab™ systems can be used in many ways thanks to innovative clinical solutions from basic to premium and image quality at its best. Nowadays MyLab™ complies with important clinical needs in order to simplify the workflow and optimize patient management, thanks to a tailor-made ergonomics for endocrinologists and IR radiologists.
Basic and Advanced Diagnosis in Neck Ultrasonography
Esaote plays a fundamental role in the management of thyroid neoplasm and in particular in the management of recurring neck problems after thyroidectomy. Esaote MyLab systems can be used in many ways and different technologies can play a very important role, thanks to a unique probe portfolio from 5 to 22 MHz.
Ergonomics at its best
A wide range of accessories makes MyLab™ an efficient “ready-to-go” solution when mobility and time are crucial:
- Touchscreen interface with eTouch™ allows you to speed up your workflow.
- High-resolution monitor can be rotated 90° to ensure greater comfort and allow the examination to be shared with the patient or a colleague.
- Appleprobe transducers ensure a natural alignment between the hand and wrist, making daily scanning more comfortable.
- Unique control buttons integrated into lightweight Appleprobe transducers allow remote control of the scanner with quick actions in sterile conditions.
- Battery Operated and lightweight portable solutions.
New technology for Micro-Vascularization detection
MicroV is the latest technology introduced by Esaote with an astonishing sensitivity for small vessels and slow flows detection. Top performance for micro-vascularization study in terms of sensitivity and spatial resolution and characterized by a very high frame-rate and developed with a movement artifacts suppression algorithm, MicroV offers tiny and slow flow vessels detection without B-Mode interferences (no noise related to hyperechoic structures) for the representation of the information related to flows non-detectable with standard Doppler Techniques.
Gold-standard Lesion Characterization
Tissues have different mechanical properties, and elasticity is one of these characteristics. It is well known that tissue elasticity is correlated to pathology and palpation in different areas, and is routinely used as a measure in clinical exams. Elasticity allows tissue to change shape under pressure or force and return to its original shape after distortion. Evaluation of elastic properties involves transforming a tissue through the application of an external load. Elastography technology allows the user to perform a tissue’s elasticity analysis, providing information about the tissue’s elasticity by associating different chromatic patterns to the different tissue elasticity responses.
Remote Control of your Ultrasound and “Tailor-Made” Keyboard
Endocrinologists and operators need to be able to move freely, while keeping full control of the systems, focusing on the procedure and improving patient care. Nowadays MyLab complies with important clinical needs in order to simplify the workflow and optimize the space in sterile conditions, with the additional possibility to customize the ultrasound keyboard according to your workflow and application field. A remote control of the unit combined with a “tailor-made” keyboard would simplify the daily clinical practice.
MyLab Remote is the revolutionary Esaote APP which transforms your iPad™ and iPhone™ into a wireless remote controller to control your MyLab Ultrasound system in real-time.
MyLabRemote enables real-time management of your high end MyLab Ultrasound system for basic (Imaging and Doppler modalities) and advanced features (Elastosonography, CEUS, Fusion Imaging).
Bi-dimensional Navigation: localization and targeting made easy
The localization of lesions with real-time ultrasound while taking advantage of a secondary 2D technology is a significant challenge in everyday clinical practice without technological support.
BodyMap is an exclusive technology which enables the real-time visualization of the probe position on a second system next to any kind of DICOM 2D image, such as Scintiscan, SPECT, MRI,PET, XRay and many more. The coregistration between the ultrasound and the second imaging modality takes less than one minute and there is an option to take a picture of the body area under examination (Bodymark) with a BodyCamera.
Needle Enhancement for ultrasound-guided procedures
The safe and successful performance of ultrasound-guided procedures requires both detailed knowledge of the anatomy and the ability to understand where the needle tip is at all times. The latter is dependent on the needle and transducer manipulation, which can be a challenge specially for beginners. Visualization of the needle tip requires alignment with the ultrasound beam and sometimes that is not achieved, and even when it is, the physical characteristics of the needle and technology limitations may obstruct the visibility. In order to increase the operator’s confidence in identifying the needle tip location, Esaote developed a tool that increases the needle brightness by combining a dedicated image composition of a standard B mode with a properly processed and steered image.
Virtually Guided Biopsy Procedures
Virtual Biopsy combined with Intelligent Positioning can increase confidence during real-time ultrasound biopsy procedures. Using virtual tracking of the needle, the target can be reached quickly, precisely and safely. The physical needle is indicated by a virtual needle directly on the real-time ultrasound image with an accurate 3D representation of the probe, scanning plane and path to the target.
A step ahead with Fusion Imaging and 3D Real-time Neck Navigation
Virtual Navigator is Esaote’s revolutionary Technology for Fusion Imaging that displays CT, MR and PET images side-by-side with real-time Ultrasound.
The Esaote Virtual Navigator offers the chance to perform realtime Fusion of US with multiple imaging systems. This technology merges the real-time capabilities of Ultrasound such as Doppler, CEUS and Elastosonography with functional and 3D information from other systems.
Virtual Navigator can increase your diagnostic confidence in:
- I. Comparing different datasets for diagnostic purposes with real-time multi-modal Fusion Imaging through its Autofusion technology
- II. Planning the best scanning and targeting approach
- III. Guiding the operator during Interventional Procedures such as FNA and thermal ablation
