Vitacon Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance and Partners with All Imaging Systems
April 17, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsIrvine, CA (April 17th, 2013) — Vitacon, located in Trondheim, Norway, announces major milestones as it continues to expand its global reach. Vitacon has received FDA clearance on its VitaScan LT USB bladder scanner. Vitacon also announces a distributor partnership with All Imaging Systems based in Irvine, California USA.
Non-invasive bladder scanning has become a valuable diagnostic tool. Measuring bladder volume helps avoid indwelling urethral catheters, a major cause of infection. CAUTI (catheter-associated urinary tract infection) treatment is no longer reimbursed if it happens while a patient is hospitalized, thus a major incentive exists to prevent it. All Imaging Systems reviewed all the positive attributes with the VitaScan LT against the Verathon bladder scanners; they anticipate medical professionals will be pleased with the characteristics that set it apart from the major competitors and deem this a superior product in quality and ease of use.
VitaScan LT enables real-time bladder volume measurement in hospitals, clinics, and home health. It connects via USB to laptop and tablets, providing nearly limitless storage and data transmission capabilities. VitaScan software utilizes intelligent targeting algorithms enabling personnel with limited training to obtain accurate measurements in seconds.
All Imaging Systems will be responsible for sales, support, customer service, and installation where applicable. "With the arrival of the Vitacon VitaScan LT, we are confident that healthcare providers will be equally impressed with the features demonstrated on this bladder scanner." Marti Rae Ortega, COO All Imaging Systems
