Displaying the Biopsy Guideline

Biopsy Guides
The system generates a biopsy guideline through the displayed real-time ultrasound image to
indicate the anticipated path of the needle. You can use that guideline to ensure that the
needle or instrument is following the correct path.
When the biopsy display is active, a biopsy guideline is displayed, entering from the left or right
side of the screen, depending on the clinical application and image presentation you have
selected. When you reverse the image presentation by touching Left/Right, the biopsy
guideline moves to the opposite side. Image presentation is defined by the location of the
orientation marker.
When depth is changed, the biopsy display redraws to reflect the new relationships at the new
depth setting.
Displaying the Biopsy Guideline
When using a transducer with an infinite-angle biopsy guide, do not display a fixed-angle
biopsy guideline.
The biopsy guideline can have a single, fixed path or multiple paths. The system determines
which guideline to display based on the type of biopsy guide available for the transducer you
have selected.
The following procedure applies specifically to non-intervention applications.
1. Connect the transducer.
2. Touch a preset.
3. Touch the 2D tab.
4. Touch Biopsy.
