Sherri Carmody Jun 03, To kill cancer, microwave energy focuses on a tumor while negating any energy that may potentially overheat surrounding healthy tissue. Microwave energy is delivered to tumors prior to lumpectomy.
The newly acquired FDA clearance means that physicians will no longer be constrained by a maximum implant time, allowing them the flexibility to place SCOUT to mark a biopsy or lumpectomy site. The SCOUT FDA clearance for long term implant expands the number of women who can benefit from wire-free localization technology, creating more options for physicians and their patients. In addition, because the SCOUT reflector will not interfere with MRI studies, patients are not restricted in the types of imaging modalities they may need.
Giving back to the society has been one of the key values that brought both Eden Tyres and Radar Tyres together to launch this programme. This contribution has funded approx. Some of the initiatives include:.
It has been shown to decrease patient discomfort, improve patient satisfaction, keep OR schedules on time by decoupling radiology and surgery schedules, reduce OR costs and increase operational efficiency. The Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute treated more than women with breast cancer in By adopting this innovative wire-free localization technology at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest, Lehigh Valley Hospital-Muhlenberg and Lehigh Valley Hospital-Pocono, the Lehigh Valley Cancer Institute is working to reduce stress for women who are going through one of the most difficult times in their lives, as well as to reduce operating room costs and improve operational efficiency.

Complex phantoms are employed in order to approximate the difficulty in imaging breast tissue, however, even so, imaging in a clinical environment poses particular challenges.
Cianna Medical believes women deserve better when it comes to breast cancer care. Traditionally, lumpectomy procedures involve wire localization— inserting a wire into the breast on the day of surgery. For many women, this leads to discomfort, increased anxiety, and reduced satisfaction.
Radar technology detects, locates, and identifies objects by emitting radio waves, and then measuring the time intervals at which signals bounce back after those waves encounter objects in their path. Radar is one of the most precise and accurate ways to determine distance, but most people think of it only in the context of tracking large, moving objects — such as cars, planes, or missiles — which can often be located a significant distance from the radar unit. Yet, the use of radar to detect something very small, stationary, and in close proximity is transforming the treatment of breast cancer.
Elizabeth Healthcare offers the most advanced treatment options available today in the battle against breast cancer. In a typical procedure, before breast surgery, a thin, hooked wire is inserted into the breast, with a portion of the wire extending from the skin to mark where the tumor is located. The surgeon uses the wire as a marker to target the tumor's location and guide its removal.
