SonixGPS - a revolutionary ultrasound guidance positioning system
Using multiple position sensors, including one embedded in the transducer, SonixGPS provides unique ultrasound guidance for complex procedures such as nerve blocks, vascular access and prostate biopsies.
Dr. Brian Pollard discusses how GPS technology for anesthesia can improve patient outcomes and optimize safety:
*SonixGPS™ is a registered trademark of Ultrasonix Medical Corporation - several patents are pending.
SonixGPS - reduces the learning curve for complex procedures
It's no secret that guidance procedures take time to perfect. SonixGPS Anesthesia is the ideal training tool for nerve blocks, vascular access procedures, core biopsies, fine needle aspirations and more procedures that require accuracy and experience.

Works in-plane and out-of-plane
Using SonixGPS Anesthesia, you can insert the needle from any direction – either exactly in-plane with the transducer, or out of plane. You will see the needle moving and its end point. For in-plane procedures, you will see orientation bars on the lower right side of the monitor that will help guide your needle and hand position. For out-of-plane needle navigation, you will be guided by an x or a circle on the monitor. Watch the video demonstration on this page to see SonixGPS in action.
