Executive Summary

Because anesthesiologists rely on “blind” needle guidance when administering spinal anesthesia, 20% to 60% of initial needle placements fail to provide adequate pain management during childbirth or general surgery. Rivanna Medical LLC believes its pocket-sized and untethered ultrasound system, Accuro, will allow for 100% accurate needle placement.
