Bladder volume scanner

Volumetric and Diagnostic Professional Tool - tool4vol
Touch Screen

PINIT - Portable Bladder Ultrasound Scanner, is dedicated for noninvasive bladder volume contents measurement, basic exams and urinary organs and tracts measurement


Most common medical fields:

  • urinary incontinence /PVR/
  • uroflowmetry (urodynamics) support
  • urinary retention /POUR, AUR, CUR/ 
  • urinary tract infections
and profits:
  • limitation of unnecessary catheterization
  • rates reduction of urinary tract infection
  • help in managing incontinence
  • enables wide-range diagnose and anatomic measurements of bladder, kidneys, prostate et
- kidneys and bladder exams  for infection/ inflammation absence confirmation (2D diagnostic mode)

- bladder filling confirmation and measurement - before and after uroflowmetry test


Sophisticated and unique features:

  • bladder contents automatic estimated volume measurement - single-click + 2 sec. = result
  • semi automatic - multipoint/trace  contoured  volume measurement - unique and excellent method for often appeared "difficult cases" and small volume bladders
  • professional mod WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get - non-blindfold measurements (real-time pre-scan)
  • diagnostic scanning mode -  classical 2D-mode, for urology  (kidneys, bladder) and general abdominal exams
  • touch-screen operation, easy and convenient for measurement and control.

 Used abbreviations:
PVR - Post Void Residual ; AUR - Acute Urinary Retention; CUR - Chronic Urinary Retention; POUR - Post Operative Urinary Retention
