How does a nipple marker improve accuracy when used on every single patient?

 

  • A marked nipple acts as a landmark to help measure the nipple-to-lesion distance. This highlights the precise location of the suspected lesion.
     

  • Promotes good positioning and verifies nipple is in profile.
     

  • Makes certain the shadow of the nipple out of profile is not mistaken for an inframammary lesion.
     

  • Aims to differentiate a cancer or area of concern located posterior to the nipple.
     

  • Records and simplifies year-to-year comparisons of historical charts.

 

 

Clinical studies suggest that nipple markers help expedite image critique and interpretation, detect movement, reduce retakes, improve positioning and serve as a valuable landmark in obtaining precise measurement to areas of concern. Choose the pellet size and density that best suits your needs...

 

Immediately identify nipple location as landmark for precise measurement, help detect motion, aid in positioning in profile

 

The Beekley Skin Marking System® for Mammography offers radiologists a simple and effective way to identify nipples, raised moles, surgical scars, palpable masses and non-palpable areas of concern or pain. As a result, interpreting mammograms may be faster and more accurate, helping you save more lives.

 

The system consists of five different Beekley Medical® skin markers, each with a distinctive and unmistakable shape to interpret on an image. A circle appearing on the image could only mean one thing – a raised mole. A line indicates an area of a previous surgery, a triangle symbolizes a palpable mass, a solid dot is used to mark a nipple and a square to mark non-palpable areas of concern or pain.

 

Breast imaging centres using the Beekley Skin Marking System for digital, analog and tomosynthesis mammograms report better communication, fewer questions, fewer additional views and permanent documentation.
