The positioning of Epidural cannulae under ultrasound is increasingly finding acceptance in clinical practise. To this end, TouhySono's unique "Cornerstone" reflectors ensure optimum visibility of the needle in both shallow and steep angles alike.
The embossed Cornerstone reflector pattern runs fully 20mm from the distal tip of the needle, and coverage is complete about the circumference of the needle.
TuohySono is offered complete with metal stylet and removable gripping wing.
