Image-Guided Cryoablation Needles

Used with CT systems, image-guided cryoablation needles enable cryoablation visualization for optimal tumor coverage and improved CT artifact. CX needles also have helium-free thaw options, and a cautery function which allows for track ablation to be performed, creating a uniform zone of coagulative necrosis.
 

Classic Needle Details

Classic Image-Guided Needles 

  • Straight or angled 90° needle configurations in a choice of lengths and diameters
  • Three-facet sharp needle tip of easy percutaneous insertion and control
  • Accurate shaft distance markers to optimize needle placement
  • Lightweight handles to minimize torque on inserted needles, with color-coding for ease of identification
  • Unibody closed-tube design which minimizes risk of gas leakage vs welded tip designs
