Clear visualization with the least potential for "slinky" artifact in 3D mammography compared to other skin markers.
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 symbolises a palpable mass, a solid dot is used to mark a nipple and a square to mark non-palpable areas of concern or pain.
TomoSPOT skin markers are tested and proven for 3D breast tomosynthesis.
TomoSPOT skin markers provide clear visualization with the least potential for "slinky" artifact compared to other mammography skin markers.
Combining tomosynthesis with a TomoSPOT skin marking protocol supports your efforts to achieve a lowest possible recall rate, higher specificity, and has been proven to reduce radiologist reading time.
