The female pelvic structures have varying viscoelastic characteristics across physiological states, healthy and diseased conditions. The VTI provides a large body of measurements to evaluate individual variations in support defects as well as identify specific potential markers to measure soft tissue properties and muscle function in patients with POP, SUI, tissue atrophy and pelvic pain.
The VTI procedures (8 tests) has a new CPT Code for "Biomechanical mapping, tranvaginal, with report".
The VTI may be used for:
: to characterize and localize its development
: to characterize the vaginal tissue atrophy
: to quantify pelvic muscle defects which contribute into SUI
- Pelvic Pain
: to identify factors contributing to pelvic floor pain
: to quantify outcome of pelvic floor surgery (POP, SUI)
- RF, Laser
: to evaluate vaginal conditions before and after laser or RF treatment
: to assess vaginal conditions before and after a treatment
: to monitor pelvic floor conditions in the course of applied treatment
- Military, Sport
: to monitor pelvic floor changes under a heavy, repetitive load
