The automated stereotactic breast biopsy procedure depends on several variables for accurate needle placement. Physicians and technologists use the this disposable phantom (model 164A) to become proficient and confident in performing these procedures, and to check performance accuracy of the stereotactic biopsy system.
|Construction:||Gel with attenuation properties similar to breast tissue|
|Multiple Radiopaque Lesions:||2 to 5 mm|
|Materials:||Solid Gel for core biopsy; Liquid dye for fine needle aspiration|
|Storage Temperature:||5 - 32° C (40 to 90°F)|

The Ultrasound Breast Biopsy Phantom (model 429) allows you and your team to fine tune your biopsy skills using ultrasound to dynamically locate lesions and practice needle placement. Eleven lesions are placed at varying depths filled with water, green fill and semi-translucent fill, providing visual check for the user to differentiate between the mass and the surrounding tissue. This is important to determine biopsy success.
|Fluid-filled Cysts:||3 cysts, 12 to 15 mm diameter|
|High Contrast Lesions:||Solid masses, 7 to 10 mm diameter|
|Low Contrast Lesions:||4 solid masses, 7 to 10 mm diameter|
|Storage Temperature:||0° to 40° C|
|Weight:||625 g (1 lb. 6 oz.)|
