Rivanna touts Accuro clinical study results

2021 03 30 22 43 1069 Needle Anesthesia 400

Ultrasound technology developer Rivanna Medical is touting clinical results that show that its Accuro handheld ultrasound image-guidance platform bests palpation and ultrasound alone for managing spinal anesthesia administration in obese people.

The findings were published August 3 in the Ultrasound Journal by a team led by Christian Compagnone, PhD, of the University of Parma in Italy. The researchers found that use of Accuro in this context improved patient satisfaction; offered immediate visualization of anatomical structure, reduced needle placement times; and predicted needle direction and distance from the skin to reach body targets, the company said. The platform provides artificial intelligence-based automatic recognition of spinal anatomy.
