Technology

NeuralHarmonics® - New technology in the science of ultrasound

NeuralHarmonics enables quick and more accurate measurements than conventional two-dimensional ultrasound.

In bladder volume measurements, a unique second harmonic differentiates the bladder, urine and hypo-echogenic regions such as the uterus. This results in a better analysis, a faster answer, and a more accurate measurement from the device.

BladderScan is quick and easy to use. When the user releases the scan button, within seconds, the instrument measures ultrasonic reflections on multiple planes inside the body and produces a three-dimensional image. Based on this image, the BladderScan calculates and displays the bladder volume.


Reimbursement

BladderScan exams can be conducted easily in only a few minutes by your staff. The CPT codes for:

are approved for reimbursement by Medicare and many private insurers.
