Biopsy Guides
The biopsy guide feature helps you position transducers with biopsy needle-guide attachments.
The biopsy guide feature displays guidelines on the image that show the anticipated path of the
needle. You can use those guidelines to ensure that the needle or instrument is following the
correct path.
Starter kits, which include the biopsy guide or biopsy guide bracket and procedure kits, are
available from Philips. Biopsy guides and supplies are available from CIVCO Medical Solutions
(see
"Supplies and Accessories" on page
21).
For detailed information about using, cleaning, and sterilizing biopsy guides and brackets, see
the instructions provided with the biopsy starter kits, guides, and brackets.
NOTE
The biopsy guides for the L12-5 50 mm, and L18-5 transducers have infinite-angle capability and
can be installed on either side of the transducer; they do not constrain the biopsy needle to a
particular path. Because the needle path is unpredictable, the Biopsy control is unavailable, and
the biopsy graphics do not appear on the display when you are using these transducers. A
biopsy with these transducers is a manual action. The C5-1 and the C9-2 also support infinite-
angle biopsy guides but the graphics should not be used.
Attaching and Removing a Biopsy Guide
Detailed information about attachment and removal of biopsy guides is provided with the
biopsy starter kits, guides, and brackets.
WARNING
Do not attempt to use the biopsy guide until you have read the instructions for selecting the
display, installing the sterile transducer cover, and verifying alignment of the biopsy guide.
