PAJUNK® Chiba cannulas are approved for a variety of applications, including percutaneous cholagiography, cytological biopsy, prenatal diagnostics and general percutaneous applications.
In cooperation with Dr. Chris Mitchell, Pajunk has developed a new generation of cannulas that provide improved ultrasound visibility of the needle tip and shaft.The Chiba cannulas are available with the following features:
- Bevelled or US tip
- With or without echogenic markings (Chiba vs ChibaSono)
- With or without depth graduation
The cannula segment is equipped with 60° offset cornerstone reflectors all around.
Visibility independent of the insertion angle
The nature of the Cornerstone reflectors guarantees optimum reflection behaviour regardless of the insertion angle.
