Quickly and Easily Access Hard-to-Reach Lesions
The Affirm® prone biopsy system provides clinicians with a new level of 360-degree access. It provides continuous 180-degree C-arm rotation that can be stopped at any point, and patients can be positioned in either direction. It’s the only dedicated prone biopsy system with a fully integrated lateral needle approach,2 allowing clinicians to access hard-to-reach lesions and thinly compressed breasts by transitioning from a standard to a lateral needle approach in seconds.
Standard and Lateral Needle Approach
A biopsy arm enables clinicians to easily transition between a standard and lateral needle approach in seconds with a simple touch of a screen. No attachments are needed and the system can be transitioned to lateral needle approach during a procedure without reimaging or repositioning the patient. This grants access to challenging lesion locations and supports biopsy of very thinly compressed breasts (< 3 cm) with needle approaches parallel to the detector without impacting the compression platform.
Better¹ Access to Posterior Lesions
The Affirm® prone biopsy system’s fixed 10-degree biopsy device mount angle, integrated lateral approach, and arm-through procedure accessories don’t obscure the view of the breast making it fast and easy to position a patient and facilitating access to challenging posterior lesions.
Fast and Easy Access at Any Angle
The innovative, fully integrated C-arm enables full 360-degree access to the breast, accommodating a wider range of patients and most lesion locations. With 180-degree C-arm rotation making it easy to access lesions in CC, from below, or at any angle in between.
"The 10-degree angle of the needle permits us access to posterior lesions that we couldn't access before with the old table."
