Consultant surgeon Ken Woodburn uses a SonoSite M-Turbo
SonoSite’s M-Turbo point-of-care ultrasound system is proving a versatile tool for vascular and endovascular surgeons, offering rapid imaging both for clinical assessments and ultrasound-guided procedures.
Mr Ken Woodburn, a consultant vascular and endovascular surgeon in Cornwall, explained: “I believe there are clear benefits in surgeons being able to perform the pre-operative ultrasound assessments as well as using the technique for guidance during the procedure.
“The portability of a point-of-care system like the M-Turbo makes this far easier as I can simply take it with me to NHS and private outpatient clinics, or whenever I’m called onto wards or the dialysis unit for patients with difficult venous access.”
