A New Era of Prone Biopsy
The Affirm® prone breast biopsy system delivers faster, more comfortable procedures by increasing automation, providing superior imaging and giving 360-degree access to the breast – creating a better experience for patients and providers.1
It’s the only dedicated prone biopsy system offering superior 2D or tomosynthesis (3D™) imaging, and allows for 2D users to easily upgrade to 3D™ imaging when ready. It’s the only dedicated prone system with a modern operating system designed for the future.
Give Patients a Compassionate Experience¹
More than 95% of patients reported their Affirm® prone biopsy procedure was faster, more comfortable and less painful than expected.3 The system is designed with patients’ physical and emotional comfort in mind. Direct view of the biopsy needle is eliminated helping to reduce patient stress, and clinicians can quickly identify, target and access lesions to help reduce time spent in compression.¹
Superior Imaging Capability and a Wider Field of View1‚4
With high-quality 2D or tomosynthesis (3D™) imaging and a field of view that’s more than 6.5 times larger than older generations of prone biopsy systems,¹ clinicians can visualize more tissue and pinpoint subtle lesions and faint calcifications that may not be visible on older systems. It also allows for easy software upgrade from 2D to 3D™ imaging at any time.
Increased Automation for Fast, Easy Procedures¹
Featuring an automated tube-head motion, pre-programmed needle parameters and one-click targeting5 the Affirm® prone biopsy system is streamlined for efficiency. Its intuitive software and increased automation foster a faster, more efficient workflow, and fewer procedural steps helps reduce the chance of manual errors.1
Quickly Reach Challenging Lesion Locations
A fully integrated C-arm and bidirectional patient positioning provide a new level of 360-degree access to the breast, improving access to some of the most challenging lesions.¹ The system features an independently rotating biopsy arm and exclusive lateral needle approach that allows clinicians to switch from a standard to lateral approach in seconds—without additional attachments, and without the need to reposition the patient or acquire additional images.
Modern Connectivity for Prone Biopsy
Connectivity quick fixes and Windows XP stopgaps are resolved with the Affirm® prone system, the only biopsy system running on a modern operating system, giving your facility peace of mind and a solution for Windows XP initiatives.²
Better Together: The Affirm® prone and the Brevera® Biopsy Systems
When paired together, the Affirm® prone system and the Brevera® breast biopsy system with CorLumina® imaging technology is designed to accelerate the speed and efficiency of prone biopsy procedures to minimize patient time under compression.1
