Faxitron - BioVision Surgical Specimen Radiography System | Faxitron Bioptics LLC


The Faxitron BioVision provides immediate verification of excised breast tissue margins. The BioVision raises the standard of care to new heights for patients undergoing surgical excision or biopsy procedures. Save time in the OR by x-raying the specimen intra-operatively. The image can be sent to mammography via PACS while the specimen is sent directly to pathology.
