Bladder volume scanner


Volumetric and Diagnostic Professional Tool – tool4vol

Touch ScreenPINIT – Portable Bladder Ultrasound Scanner, is dedicated for noninvasive bladder volume contents measurement,
basic exams and urinary organs and tracts measurement.

Most common medical fields:

  •   urinary incontinence /PVR/
  •   uroflowmetry (urodynamics) support
  •   urinary retention /POUR, AUR, CUR/
  •   urinary tract infections
and profits:

  •  limitation of unnecessary catheterization
  •   rates reduction of urinary tract infection
  •   help in managing incontinence
  •   enables wide-range diagnose and anatomic measurements of bladder, kidneys, prostate etc.

– kidneys and bladder exams  for infection/ inflammation absence confirmation (2D diagnostic mode)
– bladder filling confirmation and measurement – before and after uroflowmetry test

Sophisticated and unique features

  • bladder contents automatic estimated volume measurement – single-click + 2 sec. = result
  • semi automatic – multipoint/trace  contoured  volume measurement – unique and excellent method for often appeared “difficult cases” and small volume bladders
  • professional mod WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get – non-blindfold measurements (real-time pre-scan)
  • diagnostic scanning mode –  classical 2D-mode, for urology  (kidneys, bladder) and general abdominal exams
  • touch-screen operation, easy and convenient for measurement and control.

Used abbreviations:
PVR – Post Void Residual ; AUR – Acute Urinary Retention; CUR – Chronic Urinary Retention; POUR – Post Operative Urinary Retention
