dBMEDx Core Technology
The technology at the heart of every dBMEDx device is our patented, compact, low-cost 3D scan head design.
Next Generation Technology = Less Technique Dependent
- Automatically locates bladder without aiming
- Automatically detects male/female anatomy
- Provides results you can trust
- Wireless design simplifies decontamination protocols
- No annual calibration required
|ATTRIBUTE||TYPICAL DEVICE||BBS REVOLUTION|

The patented (US #8,206,307), 3D scan head design places an array of transducers onto a spinning core that supports the electronics subsystem, battery, wireless radio and motor. As a result, the palm-sized device houses the entire ultrasound machine including image processor, power supply and wireless interface – a remarkable miniaturization effort.
This architecture allows the scan head to collect multiple b-mode slices resulting in a true 3D data set. It is this 3D data set that is the key to enabling the automated calculation of the volume of the bladder. It is the same game-changing, rugged design that is the key to our automated self-calibrating methodology.
