Bedside imaging. Comprehensive support from nerve blocks to perioperative monitoring.

An integrated imaging solution supporting guided blocks, line placement and cardiac assessment.

Nerve block guidance for more control over regional procedures.

Butterfly iQ+ provides in-pocket accessibility for nerve block guidance thanks to high-fidelity B-mode, as well as Needle Viz™ developed specifically for procedural support. Ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks have been associated with higher success rates than traditional anatomic techniques1.

Perform guided procedures with ease with new Biplane Imaging™.

Now with the world’s first point-of-care ultrasound Biplane Imaging, it is possible to see the short and long axis of your needle simultaneously in real-time. Biplane Imaging has been built to support regional nerve blocks, peripheral IV access, pain management injections, and more. Studies show that ultrasound guidance can reduce the number of attempts and decrease the complications associated with CVC insertion2.

Rapid TTE.

A focused bedside transthoracic echocardiogram performed by anaesthesiologists has been shown to accurately detect significant cardiovascular pathology and impact perioperative managemen3. Utility includes assessment of global cardiac function, as well as point-of-care shock assessment.

Preoperative gastric status.

Butterfly iQ+, with imaging developed in partnership with anaesthesiology, can help the clinician identify gastric contents. Even in fasted patients, residual gastric content has been associated with complications of pulmonary aspiration, leading to up to 9% of anaesthesia-related deaths4. By identification of "gastric fullness" at the bedside, appropriate surgical management decisions can be made.


Clinical evidence.

Perioperative Medicine

Ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia can contribute to a decrease in unnecessary opioid use, opioid-related adverse events, and side effects in the perioperative period, reducing the worldwide opioid epidemic.

Perioperative Medicine

Point-of-care ultrasound has been shown to support clinician determination of gastric content/ volume in the perioperative period, and therefore be a valuable tool in guiding operative decisions for those at risk.

Cochrane Library

Upper and lower limb nerve blocks performed under ultrasound guidance are an established practice to help reduce block failure, avoid complications and be performed faster.
