Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) recently announced the launch of its SiteRite 9 Ultrasound System in the United States market. The system received 510(k) clearance in September and is part of the company’s vascular access management portfolio.

The device is designed to help improve clinician efficiency when placing peripherally inserted central catheters (PICCs), central venous catheters, IV lines, and other vascular access devices. It is user-friendly and updated with a 15.5-inch touch screen with enhanced image quality that “provides industry-leading catheter placement tools and technologies to support clinicians during the vascular access device insertion process,” according to the press release announcing the launch.

Additionally, the system includes integrated visualization tools like the Cue Needle Tracking System to provide continuous and real-time needle tracking and the Sherlock 3CG+ Tip Confirmation System to ensure correct catheter tip navigation and location. SiteRite 9 also features vessel assessment tools that automatically detect the vessel and then pair with vessel measurement tools to help clinicians choose the right catheter. Other system capabilities include patient data look up with information capture, autofilling capabilities, and records transfer.

"Our latest innovation in ultrasound technology is designed to make vascular access care delivery easier and more efficient for clinicians — whether they've been on the job for years or are new to the field," said Eric Borin, worldwide president of medication delivery solutions at BD, in the release. "By combining our decades of leadership in vascular access with voice-of-the-customer enhancements, we've developed a best-in-class solution to aid in insertion success on the first attempt and reduce the need for repeated needlesticks to deliver a better care experience for everyone involved."
