Date:11/28/2011

KALONA, Iowa, Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CIVCO Medical Solutions is introducing RAD-GUIDE, a needle guidance solution for CT and Fluoroscopy, at RSNA 2011. RAD-GUIDE allows physicians a method for introducing needles under CT or Fluoroscopy by visualizing and adjusting planned punctures prior to needle entry. "As imaging modalities evolve, CIVCO is committed to translating our expertise in ultrasound needle guidance to other modalities," said Robin Therme, VP of Multi-Modality Imaging for CIVCO. "RAD-GUIDE is the first of many such products to come." Full RAD-GUIDE demonstrations are available at CIVCO's RSNA booth, #8309.

The guide allows proper needle support and orientation for everyday problems such as needle navigation while corresponding to a CT image. RAD-GUIDE is intended for use in procedures such as biopsy, drainage, injection and ablation. "RAD-GUIDE was invented to facilitate needle insertion by holding the needle in the correct position, especially for difficult angulation and positioning," said Dr. Luc Lacoursiere, MD, FRCPC. "RAD-GUIDE helps reach difficult targets, including those that are small and deep inside the body. It also reduces procedure length and reduces x-ray exposure for both the patient and the radiologist."

The RAD-GUIDE design gives added needle support for superficial as well as deep puncture procedures, providing the flexibility to perform a wide variety of CT guided procedures. RAD-GUIDE consists of a teal needle guide base, Top-Plate and adhesive strip. Once in position, centered above the skin entry point, the adhesive strip allows the guide base to be securely positioned. The grid-like perforation pattern on the Top-Plate provides sturdy support for multiple instruments.
