MODULITH® SLK »intelect«*: World Premiere at the EAU Congress 2016 in Munich/Germany

Compact, intelligent, flexible: during the EAU Congress 2016 in Munich/Germany (11-15 March), STORZ MEDICAL presented the new MODULITH® SLK »intelect«. The lithotripter’s impressing features make it the ideal shock wave solution for urological workstations.

SWL addition for urological workstations

X-ray workstations are a basic component of urology departments. They are used for diagnostic and interventional procedures. If a stone is discovered in a patient's KUB-image, however, in many cases it is not possible to perform SWL immediately. The MODULITH® SLK »intelect« solves this problem: with the compact lithotripter, patients can be treated with shock waves directly on the table of an already existing urological workstation. The device can be installed without a great deal of effort and can be connected perfectly with various imaging systems. With this combination of devices, the high image quality of the X-ray system integrated in the workstation can be used to locate the stone and to perform in-line control during treatment. When the lithotripter is not in use, it can be easily removed from the workstation and stored to save space.

Navigation and positioning of focus: easy as never before

The Lithotrack® navigation system conveniently combines the MODULITH® SLK »intelect« with a urological workstation, C-arc or ultrasound device. The system supports both the set-up of the lithotripter with an X-ray system and the positioning of the focus during treatment.
During the procedure, a handheld ultrasound transducer can be used to locate kidney stones in a manner similar to the procedure used for diagnostics. If the kidney stone is visualized in the ultrasound image, it can be easily marked in the image and the LithoPos® automatic positioning system moves the focus to the stone. The same helpful function can also be used during X-ray localization for all stone positions.

Flexible and economical solution

The MODULITH® SLK »intelect«'s modular concept can meet all your needs. Depending on your requirements and budget, the lithotripter can be individually configured – from the basic solution to use with an already existing C-arc without navigation, to the high-end version with Lithotrack® and the PRIMERA ST360® urological workstation. In addition, the lithotripter can be upgraded any time, which guarantees maximum flexibility.

The long service life of the proven STORZ MEDICAL shock wave source makes investing in the new MODULITH® SLK »intelect« economical and easy to monitor. The intuitive operating concept ensures a quick learning curve and good treatment results from the very beginning. Many C-arcs from the hospital's existing equipment stock can be used for localization without any mechanical modifications. The small foot print and the good manoeuvrability make it easy to set up the device.
