The stereotactic breast biopsy system that is fast, safe and simple Our flagship ATEC vacuum-assisted breast biopsy system is an all-in-one platform intended for use under ultrasound, MRI, stereotactic and 3D™-image guidance.
Designed for radiologists and surgeons who consider compassionate patient care and results as essential elements in minimally invasive breast biopsy.
The ATEC system is:
Fast - Tissue acquisition occurs every 4.5 seconds, typically lasting less than 30 seconds total.1 - Easily delivers local anesthetic directly to the biopsy site during every cycle without interruption. - Combination of saline lavage and consistent aspiration helps ensure a core with every cycle.
Safe - Closed system reduces contamination risk. - Fully disposable device and tubing minimize staff and patient exposure to biohazard.
Simple - Simple one minute setup and clean-up. - No software required for user to program or operate the console.
Features - Saline lavage: Helps ensure consistent retrieval of high quality tissue samples. - Y-Valve: Enables physicians to automatically or manually deliver local anesthetic directly to the biopsy site without interrupting the procedure.
