BOTHELL, Wash., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Verathon(R) is pleased to announce the new BladderScan(R) BVI 9600 bladder volume instrument, with AortaScan(TM) Mode to help physicians identify the presence of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAA). This new addition to the BladderScan(R) BVI 9000 series will make its official debut at the PriMed MidWest 2009 conference in Rosemont, IL on March 5. (Verathon Booth # 319).

Designed with Internists and Family Practitioners in mind, the new BladderScan(R) BVI 9600 with AortaScan(TM) Mode, uses patented VMODE(R) technology to noninvasively measure the diameter of the abdominal aorta. This crucial diameter measurement helps physicians identify the presence of AAA.

Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs), a localized dilation of the abdominal aorta that exceeds normal diameter by more than 50%, occur most frequently in men over the age of 60 (1,2). In the US, AAA occurs in 2-4% of the adult population (3). In addition to age, other patient risk factors include a family history of AAA, a history of smoking, high blood pressure and obesity (1,3). An estimated 40,000 surgical procedures are performed every year in the U.S. to repair AAAs, and approximately 15,000 Americans die annually from ruptured AAAs (3).

The new BVI 9600 with AortaScan(TM) Mode offers health care providers a quick, accurate, and reliable instrument for their practice. The device, which does not require a sonographer, is easy for staff to learn and use.

"As part of a patient's annual physical or as part of a preventative health care benefit, the BladderScan(R) BVI 9600 AortaScan(TM) exam can provide a critical measurement to help doctors quickly identify the presence of AAA and refer for further treatment," said Gerald McMorrow, C
