Leading technology. Improving life.

The world's bestselling lithotripter, the Dornier Compact Delta® II, just got better. The Dornier Delta® III offers powerful imaging, maximized energy, and enhanced efficiency to support urologists in relieving kidney stones in patients and improving the bottom line of their business.

OptiCouple: Clearing the way to better treatment

Dornier’s unique solution to optimizing the coupling process makes treatments 43% more effective

Only Dornier offers Optical Coupling Control, relying on an integrated camera in the therapy head to provide visual information on air inclusions in the coupling interface. The removal of air bubbles in the coupling gel is paramount to effective, efficient treatment. Disruptions in the coupling gel can considerably impair the disintegrating ability of the shock wave, and may even result in side effects such as petechiae.

Proper coupling aided by Dornier OptiCouple optimizes shockwave treatment so urologists can treat better, faster.

Delta III now comes with: OptiVision


Due to the non-invasive aspect of ESWL, proper visualization is essential, yet often difficult. Factors such as obesity and bowel gases (among others) can make it harder to visualize the stone and treat the patient.

OptiVision is an easy-to-use, groundbreaking image post-processing software that is developed in consultation with over 20 leading urologists worldwide. It uses an intelligent algorithm to enhance the image, neutralizing the negative optical effects caused by difficult scenarios such as obesity and bowel gases.

By giving the urologist enhanced images, OptiVision allows for better diagnosis, better treatment, and better patient follow-up at no additional radiation risk.

Powerful imaging.

4X More Power*

A 15kW X-ray generator offers enhanced imaging flexibility and image quality. With the Delta III, ESWL becomes a viable option even for larger patients.

*compared to the Delta II

2 Imaging Modes

Every case is different. The option of using either (or both) ultrasound and x-ray means that you can customize and implement the best imaging modality for each and every patient.

Updated Isocentric Arm

Aside from the FarSight® inline ultrasound, the Delta III® comes with a detachable isocentric ultrasound arm.

Offering optimized movement rangers and ergonomics, it allows for real-time monitoring of the disintegration process from alternate angles.

Maximized energy.

The Delta III offers an enhanced therapy head with miximized energy to ensure the treatment of more stones in more patients. Maximized energy means better outcomes.

EMSE 180:
Gives a larger effective area of evergy with ESWL proven to treat more stones, more effectively with a lower quantity of shock waves needed.

A larger range of energy allows custom treatment for every patient.

The New EMSE 180 features a larger penetration depth of 170mm to treat larger patients.

Enhanced efficiency.


A flexible O.R. is an effective O.R. In Transport Mode, the C-arm bow swivels back into the shockwave unit for a slimmer, more compact profile.

The Delta III can then be easily transported in, out and within the facility.


Operate the lithotripter, table and X-ray C-arm with the Hand Controller.
Advanced, isolated movements like therapy head traversal, operating table tilt, X-Ray C-arm rotation are at your fingertips for convenient, precise control.

The button along the right side of the controller releases shockwaves when depressed.

120+ Degrees of Access

The wide range of access afforded by the Delta III makes it easy to target any stone whilst maintaining patient comfort.

The therapy head support rotates to overtable or undertable configurations, effectively allowing for more than 120 degrees of access.
