Pinit – Bladder volume scanner
Pinit – Bladder volume scanner
Volumetric and Diagnostic Professional Tool – tool4vol

PINIT – Portable Bladder Ultrasound Scanner (PBUS), is medical device dedicated for quick, accurate non-invasive bladder volume contents measurement,
and also for basic exams and measurement of urinary organs and tracts.

Most common medical fields:
urinary incontinence /PVR/
urinary retention /POUR, AUR, CUR/
uroflowmetry (urodynamics) support
monitoring post-operative recovery
to assess effectiveness of mechanical bladder emptying
as a standard investigation for at-risk groups with urinary problems
to determine bladder volume if catheter not draining or is blocked
to identify any voiding problems prior to an invasive procedure
Urodynamics support:
kidneys and bladder exams for infection/ inflammation absence confirmation (B-mode visualization)
bladder filling confirmation and measurement – before and after uroflowmetry test
and profits:
limitation of unnecessary catheterization
reduce catheter-associated urinary tract infections (CAUTI)
non-invasive, no pain or discomfort
instantaneous results
help in managing incontinence
enables wide-range diagnose and measurements of bladder, kidneys, prostate etc.
easy and suitable for use with children and adults
cost reduction and saving staff time

Urodynamics support:
– kidneys and bladder exams for infection/ inflammation absence confirmation (B-mode visualization)
– bladder filling confirmation and measurement – before and after uroflowmetry test

Sophisticated and unique features

bladder contents automatic estimated volume measurement – quick execution: single-click + 2 sec. = result
semi automatic – multipoint/trace contoured volume measurement – unique and excellent method for often appeared “difficult cases” and small volume bladders
professional mod WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get – non-blindfold measurements (real-time pre-scan)
diagnostic scanning mode – classical B-mode visualization, for urology (kidneys, bladder) and general abdominal exams
able to be assessed in the home or community setting
touch-screen operation, easy and convenient for measurement and control.
Used abbreviations:
PVR – Post Void Residual ; AUR – Acute Urinary Retention; CUR – Chronic Urinary Retention; POUR – Post Operative Urinary Retention
