Bladder Scanner Ultrasounds For Sale
A bladder scan uses a portable ultrasound that is noninvasive to provide a 2D or 3D image of the bladder and the volume of urine retained within the bladder. Retained urine is a reservoir for bacteria and pathogens, which can cause urinary tract infections, leading to damage of the renal structures, pain, and urosepsis. Bladder scans are commonly utilized in acute care, long-term care, and rehabilitation environments, as well as in physicians' offices.
A bladder scan can be used to assess patients for postvoid residual (PVR) volume. The scan is typically performed 10 minutes after a patient has last voided. The typical ultrasound unit provides a 3D image of the bladder on a display screen. The scanner contains a transducer, which sends out ultrasound waves that bounce off the bladder and are sent back to the computer for interpretation.
Consider bladder scanning for patients with the following conditions: Post-op decreased urinary output, enlarged prostate, urethral stricture, neurogenic bladder, spinal cord injuries, stroke, impaired cognitive ability, Renal calculi (kidney stones) or a renal mass, urinary incontinence, and diabetes.
