State Of the Art Dornier Compact Delta Lithotripter
An ESWL procedure uses a Lithotripter which is a very specialised piece of medical equipment and incorporates a digital fluoroscopy x-ray unit, ultrasound, and shockwave generating machine all built in to one mobile unit.
The Lithotripsy equipment used at Eastcoast Mobile Urology is the State Of The Art Dornier Compact Delta 2 model which encompasses the Lithotripter, a computerised Urology Information Management System and a Dornier Relax treatment table which enables us to provide a comprehensive urological service to our hospitals.
The Lithotripter has four main components a shockwave generator, a focusing device, a coupling medium and finally the stone localisation system. The shockwave is generated using an electromagnetic coil and an electromagnetic shockwave emitter (EMSE), the shockwave is then refocused through an acoustic lens to provide a focus area that enables the kidney stone to be effectively targeted.
