BOTHELL, Wash., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Verathon(R) is pleased to announce the new BladderScan(R) BVM 9500 bladder volume instrument. Designed with Urologists in mind, the BVM 9500 measures both UEBW (ultrasound-estimated bladder weight) and bladder volume quickly and noninvasively to help diagnose bladder dysfunction, including BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy) and BOO (bladder outlet obstruction). This new addition to the BladderScan(R) BVI 9000 series made its official debut at the AUA 2009 conference in Chicago, IL on April 25. (Verathon Booth # 4623).

Bladder Outlet Obstruction (BOO) is reported to be one of the most common urologic problems among elderly male patients.(1) To date, definitive diagnosis of BOO has been achieved through invasive, time-consuming urodynamics testing.(2) Clinical studies indicate that the mass of the bladder wall may correlate with BOO.(3) The BladderScan(R) BVM 9500 provides Ultrasound-Estimated Bladder Weight (UEBW), a noninvasive measurement of bladder wall mass, in addition to urinary bladder volume (PVR, or post-void residual).

Like all BladderScan(R) bladder volume instruments, the BVM 9500 does not require a sonographer and is easy for staff to learn and use.

"The BladderScan(R) BVM 9500 provides urologists with a quick, accurate, easy to use instrument for measuring bladder volume and UEBW," said Gerald McMorrow, CEO, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Verathon, Inc. "This means Urologists can efficiently task staff to take the measurements, while allowing them to spend their time on diagnosis, treatment plans and communicating with their patients."

The portable BladderScan(R) BVM 9500 uses noninvasive ultrasound to measure bladder volume and UEBW to help diagnose urinary retenti
