Breast Tissue Markers used in conjunction with Breast Biopsy
Many medical conditions, including all cases of cancer, must be diagnosed by removing a sample of tissue from the patient and sending it to a pathologist for examination. This procedure is called a biopsy.
Biopsies can be used for diagnostic, prognostic, and treatment planning purposes.
After removing the tissue samples, the doctor may leave a tiny marker, made of surgical-grade materials, to identify the biopsy site. The tissue marker is visible under various biopsy devices (ultrasound, MRI, etc.) and points out the exact location of the biopsy site so that a doctor can find it again easily, if necessary. Breast tissue markers are also used to monitor a site to confirm tumor shrinkage and final excision of the cancerous tissue.
BiomarC Tissue Markers provide many clinical benefits when used in conjunction with breast biopsy procedures. The small size allows for accurate placement and the proprietary pyrolytic carbon coating of the BiomarC Tissue Marker delivers great visibility to ensure the biopsy site can be confidently identified by your doctor.
