Overview

More accurate ultrasound needle guidance.

Nearly three-quarters of ultrasound procedures at the point of care involve needle guidance. We’re committed to making them simple, fast and precise for clinicians.

The Venue™ 50 offering Pinpoint™ GT technology helps deliver on that promise by enabling greater control over needle placement with twice the accuracy of conventional ultrasound needle guidance. In a recent study1, clinicians:

  • Improved needle placement accuracy by 51%, across all procedure types.

  • Reduced non-productive needle sticks by 70%.

In addition to the precision of available Pinpoint™ GT technology, the Venue 50 system offers these advantages:

  • One touch and go. Select the probe and preset in one step.

  • Tablet-like navigation. Pinch, slide, or tap your way through the procedure, even with your gloves on.

  • Fast power-up. The system is operational before you even get your gloves on.

  • Portable and wireless. Battery-powered, the system can be moved from patient to patient without powering down.

  • Gel & go imaging. Get crisp images without time-consuming tweaking.

Anesthesiology

Empowering Anesthesiology

Acute intervention. Management of chronic patients. Needle guidance. These procedures demand extraordinary performance from your ultrasound system. The Venue 50 system was designed with input from clinicians, whose insights helped shape its features.

Now offering Pinpoint™ GT technology - the Venue™ 50 with Pinpoint™ GT enables greater control over needle placement with twice the accuracy of conventional ultrasound needle guidance*.

Simple.

  • Advanced features. The Venue 50 is optimized for anesthesia, permitting right-out-of-the-box imaging.
  • One touch and go. Choose the probe and application with one tap, making proper set-up easy. Workflow is simplified to three straightforward steps: Home, Scan, Review.
  • The control you'd expect from a tablet. Enjoy familiar tablet functionality — pinch, slide or tap — even with gloves on.

Fast.  

  • Portable & wireless. Compact, battery-powered system moves quickly from patient to patient.
  • Fast boot-up. Boots up while you put your gloves on.
  • Easily disinfected. Smooth, seamless touchscreen helps with infection control.
  • Secure. Screen locks to limit access or protect settings as you wipe the screen.

Precise.

  • See the origin of pain. Whether the origin is bony or soft, superficial or deep, in patients of all sizes, Venue 50 provides precise imaging.
  • Gel & go imaging. Get crisp images without the hassle.
  • See the needle tip. The Venue 50 uses two different types of ultrasound: one for tissue and one for metal. This helps the needle stand out and allows separate control of the needle appearance.
