SNV™ – Simple Needle Visualization

Konica Minolta’s SNV software incorporates an advanced algorithm that utilizes both the in-plane and out-of-plane methods to improve needle visibility, especially in steep angle approaches. The SNV feature lets you increase your accuracy in needle placement, making it the ideal solution for guided injections.

SNV is not a stand-alone product and requires either an SONIMAGE® HS1 or an SONIMAGE® MX1.

Overview

Needle guidance for interventional procedures

Konica Minolta’s SNV software incorporates an advanced algorithm that utilizes both the in-plane and out-of-plane methods to improve needle visibility, especially in steep angle approaches. The SNV feature lets you increase your accuracy in needle
placement, making it the ideal solution for guided injections.

  • Adjust the sensitivity of the needle visualization depending on the type of tissue
  • Program prompts help determine the proper level of adjustment
  • Auto setting takes the guesswork out of where to steer the ultrasound beam, or work manually by choosing the direction for beam placement
  • Can be used with both linear and curved transducers
  • Improve injection accuracy by visualizing injectate

Needle visualization is essential for accurate and successful ultrasound-guided procedures. From regional anesthesia to biologic injections, ultrasound not only images the anatomical structures but also highlights the advancing needle. Simple Needle Visualization (SNV™) software, available with the SONIMAGE® HS1 and SONIMAGE® MX1 Ultrasound Systems, provides greater needle visibility of both the tip and shaft for confident needle placement.
