    Product information

    Product details at a glance:

    • MR-compatible, correctable localisation system for preoperative marking of non-palpable, suspicious breast lesions
    • Designed in shape and size for use inside the MR gantry

    Marking wire:

    • Twisted Nitinol double wire with distal DUO arches and with extremely sharp bevelled wire tips for a secure and firm anchorage in the soft tissue
    • Twisting of the double-wire narrows towards the head of the marking wire and provides information on the distance to the tumour centre
    • Optimal visibility in MRI, in the mammography, as well as in the ultrasound thanks to the material and surface quality and the distal double arches
    • Highest stability of form and pressure resistance with simultaneous flexibility
    • Secure preoperative fixing of the wire with the enclosed fixing clip

    Puncture cannula:

    • Cannula made of a cobalt-chromium alloy and therefore suited for application in the MRI
    • Depth markings on the cannula shaft ensure optimal orientation during the application
    • High needle stability
    • Particularly sharp and atraumatic due to the faceted bevel
    • Good lubricating features due to cannula coating

    • Packaging unit: 10 pieces

    The SOMATEX® MRI Duo-System is a correctable localisation set for the marking of non-palpable, suspicious breast lesions under MR control.

    The MRI Duo-System consists of the puncture cannula and a preloaded marking wire with a distal double arch (DUO arches).

    The marking wire is made of twisted Nitinol double-wire with a full double-arch shape. The tighter twisting at the head of the wire serves to assist the surgeon as depth marking and thus facilitates the intra-operative localisation findings. Both wire tips of the double arch are particularly sharply ground and ensure a reliable fixation in the tissue. The shape of the DUO arches allows for, if required, a positional correction, because the marker wire can easily be withdrawn back into the cannula and released again.

    The puncture cannula of the MRI Duo-System consists of a cobalt-chromium alloy and is therefore particularly well suited for use under MRI control. Furthermore, the cannula shaft is particularly rigid and the tip is also equipped with a sharp-faceted bevel. This application is therefore particularly patient-friendly and the penetration of the skin is atraumatic. The cannula shaft has been provided with centimetre markings to allow for depth orientation. Due to its coating, the puncture cannula of the MRI Duo-System has good lubricating features.

    The MRI Duo-System is delivered sterile and in a preloaded condition, including the fixing part to avoid preoperative distal dislocations and is ready for immediate use. The system can be used immediately, without preparation.
