Specimen Imaging at the Point-of-Care
Before releasing the patient from the stereotactic core needle biopsy procedure, the physician must ensure that the core specimens they remove contain a representative sample of microcalcifications that were identified on the mammogram. Without point-of-care specimen radiography, the specimen may have to be transported down the hall, to another wing, or even to another building to an available mammo unit.
- Our CoreVision can be located directly in the stereotactic suite, only steps from the stereo table.
- The self-contained benchtop system produces a high-resolution digital image in a matter of seconds to verify the core specimens contain microcalcifications.
- The images can be sent to PACS for archiving and hardcopy printing.
Benefits for the Patient:
- Minimizes overall time patient is in prone position and/or breast is in compression.
- Reduces time required to determine if additional specimens are necessary.
Benefits for the Physician, Staff, and Facility:
- Improves standard of care for patient.
- Reduces procedure time freeing up clinicians and suite for other patients.
- Saves significant cost per procedure
"George Washington University Hospital has benefitted from having the BioVision digital specimen radiography system in the operating room. The BioVision system allows us to see the specimen radiographs immediately which has improved our efficiency substantially, benefitting us and our patients. We just love the BioVision system."
