Scar Markers

Correlate architectural distortion from previous biopsy sites by delineating exact location of incisions

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 scar marker supplement a written history?

 

Routine scar marking aims to eliminate confusion of where a biopsy was performed. The surgical history and mammographic findings are more easily correlated; distortion or asymmetry of the local breast architecture can be explained. Calcifications found in the area marked with a scar marker can be examined relative to their location at the biopsy site. Routine and consistent placement of the scar marker will assure that a reference point to the original surgery is maintained from year to year.
