Verathon BladderScan BVI 3000 Bladder Scanner Features

The refurbished Verathon BladderScan BVI 3000 Bladder Scanner is a portable, 3D ultrasound instrument that quickly, accurately, and noninvasively measures urinary bladder volume and post-void residual (PVR). It is battery-operated, easy to use, and quickly provides accurate results. In less than 5 minutes, you can use the Verathon BVI 3000 to obtain a precise reading of a patient’s bladder volume. The BVI 3000 supplies information that caregivers need to diagnose, treat, and manage urinary conditions. This BladderScan has clinical applications in various disciplines, from private practice to acute and extended care. When you use the BladderScan, you can be confident that you’re providing your patients with the best care available. The BVI 3000 calculates bladder volume using patented VMODE technology. Volume measurements made with VMODE ultrasound are more accurate than those from conventional 2-dimensional ultrasound, as they are based on a more complex, 3-dimensional image of the bladder. VMODE ultrasound is easy to use and comfortable for the patient. When you press the scan button, within seconds, the VMODE technology measures ultrasonic reflections on multiple planes inside the body and produces a 3-dimensional image. Based on this image, the BVI 3000 calculates and displays the bladder volume, and displays multiple B-mode images.

  • LCD screen displays bladder position and volume; aiming icon assists in proper probe placement.
  • The 3D display shows the bladder in 2 cross-sectional images to verify an accurate scan.
  • Easy-to-print exam results for patient records or reimbursement procedures.
  • Helps document cost savings and catheterizations-prevented based on user-determined statistical input.
