First and only system to combine tissue acquisition, real-time imaging verification and post-biopsy handling now features new functionality, simplified storage and improved waste management


Hologic, Inc., an innovative medical technology company primarily focused on improving women’s health, today announced improvements to the Brevera® Breast Biopsy System with CorLumina® Imaging Technology, the world’s first and only breast biopsy solution to combine vacuum-assisted tissue acquisition, real-time imaging verification and advanced post-biopsy handling in one, integrated system.


Since its launch in 2017, the Brevera system has shifted the way clinicians perform breast biopsies and verify that the targeted tissue samples have been acquired. The system streamlines the entire biopsy process from start to finish - with real-time imaging for verification of sample acquisition and automated post-biopsy specimen handling.  These integrated features offer the potential to save facilities an average of 13 minutes per procedure2 to transform the patient experience and enhance workflow. In addition, they allow clinicians to remain by the patient’s side during the entire procedure, eliminating the need to leave the room to image and verify tissue samples, which often leads to lengthy procedure times and anxious patients, as well as interruptions to facility screening schedules.


“As a world leader in breast health, we take great pride in our commitment to constant innovation – informed by clinical research and customer feedback – to continuously expand and improve upon the performance of our products,” said Jennifer Meade, Hologic’s Division President, Breast and Skeletal Health Solutions. “The launch of the Brevera system represented a major transformation in breast biopsy, and we’re confident that the improvements we’ve introduced will further the system’s ability to enhance workflow, increase accuracy and improve the overall patient experience.”


To better meet clinician needs, the Brevera system features a reusable device driver and disposable needles to simplify storage and improve waste management.1 The system also features improvements that allow radiologists and technologists to better separate and verify target samples automatically, then transfer seamlessly to pathology with minimal handling to help maintain core integrity.

The Brevera system is designed for use with Hologic’s Affirm® Prone biopsy guidance system. When paired together, the Brevera system and Affirm® system accelerate the speed and efficiency of prone biopsy procedures to further reduce the patient’s time under compression.

I just got my ex husband back through the help of Dr Nkosi love spells Experts. My husband left me for another woman, This was just 3 years of our marriage. The most painful thing is that I was pregnant with our second baby. I wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr nkosi, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr nkosi. if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Nkosi for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +27820502562 {or} Email him at: [email protected] ,his website: www.fastsolutiontemple.com
