PROVIDING CLEAR ANSWERS FROM PROSTATE BIOPSIES

Prostate Screening Challenge

Prostate-Specific Antigen (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. In many cases, MRI has proven to be effective in identifying suspicious lesions.

 

Fusing MRI And Ultrasound

Fusing real-time ultrasound images with pre-exam MRI data provides better guidance to help accurately target lesions identified on the MRI images, potentially reducing the risk of missing high-grade tumors or under-staging tumors for active surveillance.

 

Enter bkFusion

bkFusion, a powerful advancement in visualization and guidance, enhances clinical findings with true, real-time MRI-to-ultrasound fusion during prostate biopsy. 

WORKING INTUITIVELY AND QUICKLY

bkFusion has a simple, guided workflow that follows a Urologist’s familiar biopsy procedure while adding MRI data.

 

Easily Import Data

Seamlessly imports MRI data via network image transfer or HIPAA-compliant cloud connection image transfer from MRI scanners and PACS.

 

Combine MRI-Ultrasound Data With Revolutionary Predictive Fusion

Predictive Fusion™ is an advanced technology, only available on bkFusion, that saves time and reduces procedure steps by eliminating the need to draw ultrasound prostate contours.

 

Biopsy With Confidence

bkFusion ensures that real-time ultrasound imaging and MRI targets stay aligned with either the free-hand transrectal or the transperineal biopsy approach. Urologists can freely adjust ultrasound gain and depth, or choose to scan in different planes (transverse, sagittal and endfire), without any need for recalibration or loss of alignment before or during procedures. This helps to better target areas of concern.
