Works in conjunction with the mammography to pinpoint the exact location of a breast mass by using computer and digital x-rays taken from two different angles.
Using these coordinates, the radiologist inserts the needle, advances it to the lesion and removes the tissue sample. Acheiving the target accuracy of +/- 1mm
MRI Breast Coil
Some examples of how the Breast Coil is used include: detecting small abnormalities not seen with mammography or ultrasound, for example MRI has been useful for women who have breast cancer cells present in an underarm or lymph node, but do not have a lump that can be felt of viewed in diagnostic studies.
Faxitron or Specimen Radiography System
An inoperative specimen radiography system designed to provide immediate verification of excised breast tissue margins after sterotactic breast biopsy. Instantly receive confirmation of a successful excise procedure. With the machine located in the mammography room, this means no transporting the patient, no waiting for results and the ability to make informed clinical decisions on the spot.
There is quality images that are needed to make informed clinical decisions.
