The Value of Ultrasound in the Detection of Foreign Bodies

Posted by BK Ultrasound on Feb 1, 2018 9:36:24 AM

Medical ultrasound is routinely used to detect and remove an array of ‘foreign bodies’ retained in soft tissue. Foreign bodies are typically glass, metal or vegetal (plant) based, and tend to appear hyperechoic compared to surrounding soft tissue when viewed with ultrasound. Foreign bodies are a common cause of acute pain and admission to hospital emergency departments, and present a significant risk for inflammation and infection.

Prostate Ultrasound Biopsy with BK Fusion Technology: Mr. Allen Wynn

Posted by BK Ultrasound on Jan 4, 2018 9:20:46 AM

In this video, Prostate cancer survivor Allen Wynn describes how he feels that having a doctor who uses cutting edge technology made a difference to him when he was diagnosed with a prostate cancer that required treatment. PSA tests and Digital Rectal Exams are important tools for prostate screening but often raise as many questions as they answer. Systematic biopsies don’t always give enough information to be conclusive. Fusing real-time ultrasound images with pre-exam MRI data gives you better guidance to help accurately target lesions identified in the MRI images, potentially reducing the risk of missing high-grade tumors or under-staging tumors for active surveillance. Watch this video to learn more about the bkFusion system.
