Designed to assist healthcare professionals who perform ultrasound-guided procedures on a less frequent basis, ScanNav PNB supports nine common peripheral nerve blocks, according to the company. Featuring built-in AI software, ScanNav PNB provides clinicians with continuous feedback via real-time highlighting of their live ultrasound scan.
In addition, users can utilize the system's integrated 3D animations to refamiliarize themselves with blocks that are carried out less frequently, Intelligent Ultrasound said. The device can also serve as a training simulator for medical learning on volunteers.
ScanNav PNB will be sold as a standalone product that can be plugged directly into existing anesthesiology ultrasound systems, according to the vendor. Sales are expected to begin in the U.K. market in the second quarter.
Intelligent Ultrasound said it's also working on a regulatory filing for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, as well as seeking to license an integrated version of ScanNav PNB to the major ultrasound vendors.
