    The SOMATEX® semi-automatic MRI Biopsy Handy has been specially developed for the single and multiple collection of tissue material under magnetic resonance imaging guidance. The biopsy obtained from soft tissue or an organ is used for histological examination. Due to its lightweight format, the biopsy system can be used in a precise, target-specific manner with one hand.
    Cannula and metal stylet
    The Biopsy Handy consists of a very sharp metal stylet with a 20 mm biopsy chamber and an equally sharp-grounded outer cannula. The special alloy of the cannula allows for its use in the magnetic resonance tomography. In the procedure, after triggering the system, the soft tissue material is severed by an extremely rapid forward movement of the outer cannula.

    The bevelled point makes the cannula extremely sharp and therefore causes only a slight puncture trauma. The echogenic needlepoint ensures optimal visibility in the MRT. Additional centimetre markings on the cannula shaft allow for exact depth orientation during application.


    The light ABS plastic handle (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymer) also allows for precise, target-specific and one-handed handling of the Biopsy Handy.

    The coaxial puncture introducer is available as an option for the MRI Biopsy Handy, enabling multiple tissue removal with the same Biopsy Handy.
