Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Health Heroes is proud to announce that Mammotome will be featured in an upcoming episode of Health Heroes.
Known for advancing breast biopsy technology, the Mammotome® Biopsy System allows doctors to achieve diagnostic confidence using a less invasive approach that offers women faster recovery, less scarring and lower costs of care as compared to open procedures. Mammotome, a division of Devicor® Medical Products, Inc. is the pioneer and global leader in vacuum-assisted breast biopsy. The Mammotome® Biopsy System is available in nearly 4,000 hospitals, breast centers, and physician offices worldwide.
Compatible with multiple imaging modalities, the Mammotome® Biopsy System enables breast biopsy to be performed under stereotactic x-ray, ultrasound, MRI or molecular imaging guidance. Mammotome offers a full array of tissue markers to mark the biopsy site for subsequent imaging studies and treatment guidance.
This particular episode will showcase advancements in breast biopsy technology. Health Heroes viewers will learn why more than 4 million women and their doctors have trusted the Mammotome® Biopsy system and how Devicor is continuing to develop breakthrough technologies for breast diagnostics.
“Participating in the Health Heroes program gives us a unique opportunity to tell the story of the impact that Mammotome has had on women’s health, and how we are remaining at the forefront of innovation,” said Tom Daulton, CEO of Devicor. “When it comes to breast biopsy, it’s all about getting quality tissue samples to the pathologist to derive an accurate diagnosis. Our newest Mammotome® revolve™ system accomplishes that, and at the same time, allows for a faster procedure. Our Mammotome® elite™ system provides physicians performing ultrasound guided biopsy with the an ergonomic solution that’s as easy and fast to use as a smaller, core needle biopsy while providing larger tissue samples for diagnostic accuracy.”
“This technology is really helping revolutionize the way breast biopsies are performed. This outpatient procedure can be done under local anesthetic, and allows patients to return to normal activities directly following a biopsy," said Michele Nehls, producer for the Health Heroes series. “I’m proud to be able to bring this information to our audience.”
Mammotome, a division of Devicor® Medical Products, Inc., is focused exclusively on medical technologies that improve patient experiences and outcomes.
