BVI 9600 Measures Up for Doctor with Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm
Richard Haydel, MD, uses the BladderScan® BVI 9600 portable ultrasound instrument in his Family Practice to measure abdominal aortic diameter and assess bladder dysfunction in his patients.
He didn’t realize the impact that the BVI 9600 would have on his own life.
"On a personal note, the AortaScan® has affected me in a very profound way. I knew that I had an enlarged aorta, as I have a family history of AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm). After a lengthy period of watchful waiting, Pete ran the test on me, and alerted me that my Aorta had grown significantly. Not only did this prompt me to purchase this equipment, but it urged me to have the aneurysm repaired surgically.
I am very happy to be back at the office and ordering this procedure for my patients in the hopes of proactively detecting aneurysms. Feel free to let me know of any physicians that would like further information on this equipment, as I would recommend it to any primary care physician.
