Provide certainty that densities on mammographic images are moles and not areas of concern.
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.
Breast imaging centres using the Beekley Skin Marking System for digital, analogue and tomosynthesis mammograms report better communication, fewer questions, fewer additional views and permanent documentation.
How does a mole marker save time?
The mole marker signals that the soft density highlighted by the ring corresponds to an identified mole that is not of concern. The soft tissue image of a raised mole is consistently captured within the center of the marker. Beekley mole markers are offered in ultra-sheer and low density variants, allowing all tissue detail and calcifications to image within the shadow of the marker. The communication on the mammogram becomes a clear and permanent part of the patient’s record when images are transferred to another location.
