A North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System study suggests a new imaging system could better determine if women are eligible for transvaginal surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse. This comes after several lawsuits have been filed and after several FDA reports about the problems associated with surgical mesh.

A new imaging system could help physicians evaluate a woman’s suitability for pelvic organ prolapse repair using transvaginal surgical mesh, the Rottenstein Law Group reports.
Medical equipment manufacturer Imalux said researchers at the North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System used its Niris 1300e Imaging System to image previously placed surgical mesh in the vaginal tissue and measure the thickness of that tissue. Older technologies such as X-rays, CT scans and MRIs cannot achieve a high enough resolution for transvaginal mesh imaging, the company said citing studies presented at the American Urogynecologic Society Annual Meeting.
