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
"With the Faxitron there was a marked difference in the time needed to obtain ready-to-read images, the ability to re-excise tissue promptly, and the overall operating room time, which showed an average potential savings of 19 minutes."
"The Faxitron device is self-contained and requires no additional radiation shielding. In our OR it’s located within 15 feet of the surgeon. Because the...
