Vein Finder Use in Imaging Centers

Imaging Center SIFVEIN

In Imaging centers, Imaging (X-RAY, fMRI or regular scan) is a technique used to see the internal structure of the patient’s body. During an angiogram procedure, for instance, the angio surgeon usually injects a contrast agent (iodine dye) in the patient’s vein in order to make the vascular system more visible, either during diagnosis or treatment.

In addition, the patient should be sedated during the time necessary for the procedure. For the diagnosis to be accurate and for the procedure to be less painful for the patient, vein finding should be made easier.

In cases where the vein is not easily detectable due to a skin condition, the age of the patient (old or a baby), obesity or the skin color, injecting substances, during contrast imaging, can be very challenging.

SIFVEIN makes this complicated process way easier in the Imaging center. SIFVEIN emits a non-invasive infrared light with different wavelengths, making projection depth adaptable.

SIFVEIN trolley vein detectors, such as the SIFVEIN-7.11, SIFVEIN-6.0 or SIFVEINSET-1.0 are perfect for the imaging center setting, since they’re wheeled stands linked to the most accurate and clear infrared vein finders.
