In-line localization and treatment flexibility
The new MODULITH® SLK makes shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) for stones in all locations of the urinary tract simple and effective. An important element for treatment flexibility is the smart therapy head which can be automatically moved to over- or under-table position according to the location of the calculi.
The cylindrical coil in the unique therapy source of STORZ MEDICAL combines shock wave generation and in-line localization by design. Fluoroscopic localization through the central opening of the therapy head in the vertical AP projection ensures clear orientation for both, over- and under-table position. This proven solution facilitates localization of the stone into the focus.

Intuitive control concept
The new touch screen operating panel can be positioned according to the demands of the operator, on an adjustable support close to the C-arm controls or on the rail of the patient table. The integrated concept keeps all important controls for positioning, shock wave release and safety always at hand in a compact console.
The operation of the new MODULITH® SLK is intuitive and simple. Thus a short learning curve is guaranteed. All important functions are available at your fingertips and are easily distinguishable by their symbol and layout.
The treatment relevant shock wave parameters are permanently visible. The scrolling side menu shows the controls needed for the currently performed procedure keeping the user interface tidy and clear.
