SonoSite, or these days FUJIFILM SonoSite, has launched its AxoTrack needle guidance technology on the SonoSite M-Turbo line of ultrasounds. Developed by Soma Access Systems out of Greenville, South Carolina, the newly FDA approved AxoTrack technology allows for needle placement directly into a vessel deep within the body.
In addition to ultrasound localization within tissue, AxoTrack uses magnets to spot the location of the needle, allowing for confident placement and faster procedures.
From the product page:
The AxoTrack™ Technology is composed of two components: a specialized transducer and a sterile procedure kit.
Together, they help to enhance your confidence and control during ultrasound-guided interventional procedures. The magnet in the needle interacts with sensors in the transducer to let you plot and reach your target easily while observing the needle’s progress in real time from start to finish.
Once your target is reached, engage the specially designed needle clamp to secure your needle tip in place during critical moments.
