Automatic Epidural Location and Depth | ACCURO | RIVANNA

Hit the spot without a steep learning curve.

The Accuro spinal navigation system is the world’s first; it’s specifically designed to deliver automated, real-time image guidance with enhanced bone-to-tissue contrast to ensure easy landmark identification during neuraxial anesthesia.

Accuro with lumbar mode preset
  1. SEE more than 5X* enhancement of bone-to-tissue contrast with BoneEnhance® image reconstruction technology.
  2. FIND the ideal insertion point with Midline (red dashed line) and Cross Hair indicators.
  3. AUTOMATICALLY IDENTIFY epidural location with success rates exceeding 94%* using SpineNav3D technology.
  4. MARK needle placement or perform real-time needle guidance with the Accuro Locator needle guide.
Real-time neuraxial navigation—it’s like GPS for the spine

Accuro guides you to the desired intervertebral space with easy-to-interpret graphical indicators and enhanced bony landmark visualization. That means you achieve improved localization of the desired intervertebral space for first-attempt success when you perform neuraxial anesthesia-related procedures.

Handle any curve

Accuro is clinically proven to increase first-attempt success rates, especially with challenging patient anatomy. In turn, you improve the efficiency of your practice, the quality of your medical care, and the confidence and comfort you instill in your patients.

Remove the blindfold

Accuro is simple to use and superior to ‘blind’ palpation irrespective of provider experience, as demonstrated in randomized controlled trials.

Simply superior:

• Easy-to-use, automated image interpretation
• You don’t have to be a sonographer to use Accuro
• Superior, easy-to-interpret imaging performance
• Portable, handheld form factor
• Rotatabletouchscreen display
• Pocket size and battery operated

See what other ultrasound systems Cannot.

Accuro’s unique technology enables you to see what other ultrasound systems cannot see. Accuro’s state-of-the-art image guidance includes BoneEnhance®, which is designed to visualize bone landmarks, and SpineNav3D™, which guides you with automatic epidural location and depth.

Accuro automated overlay — lumbar preset

Scouting technique with Lumbar preset

Accuro’s automated identification of spinal midline, epidural space, and depth allow you to mark precise needle placement during spinals and epidurals.

  1. Automated depth estimates
  2. Identification of either the interlaminar space or the spinous process
  3. Position and orientation of the current 2D scan plane
