Smart Port® CT-Injectable Port

Engineered for Life.

Introducing the expansion of the Smart Port® CT family of power-injectable ports – to include low-profile and mini models for repeated treatments like chemotherapy and for use with computed tomography (CT). The tangential outlet and clear-flow technology set up efficient flushing action to hyper cleanse the entire reservoir. Each model features a light-weight design and a CT-engraved port body for better identification. These ports are clinically indicated for power-injections up to 5mL/sec and a 300 psi pressure limit setting. They are MRI-conditional—3 Tesla.

The Power of Vortex® Port Technology

Designed for extended life, Vortex port technology provides better patient outcomes, fewer complications, less nursing time and lower expenses compared to conventional ports, including a nearly 75% reduction in the occlusion rate as compared to conventional ports. The new mini and low profile models allow us to bring this technology to a larger number of patients, including those with a smaller anatomy. 

Round Chamber

Design allows fluid to reach all surfaces in the chamber, helping eliminate dead spaces, resist sludge build-up, and reduce occlusions and infections.

Off-Set Outlet

Set at a tangent rather than perpendicularly, it helps to create a flushing action within the port to hyper cleanse the entire chamber leading to decreased sludge build-up and a reduced rate of occlusions.1 Use of Vortex port technology results in an average savings per patient of $1,224 over conventional ports.

Identifying a Smart Port Power-Injectable Port

Smart Port® power-injectable ports can be identified by the Smart Angle® identifier technology on the CT and CT Low-Profile power-injectable port models. The CT engraving on all models can be seen through chest X-ray or scout scan. 

Features and Benefits

  • Vortex Reservoir Technology - Helps prevent sludge build-up and reduces occlusions and infections
  • Indicated for Power-Injections - The ability to perform power-injections of contrast media for the purpose of CT imaging
  • Superior CT Identification - All Smart Port CT models include identification on the bottom of the port for visualization under X-ray or scout scan
  • More choices for patients, physicians and clinicians - Varying catheter materials and sizes, placement options and port body styles.
