Stereotactic Breast Biopsy introduced with Fischer-Giotto Image at American Society of Breast Surgeons course
Date:5/1/2013

CHICAGO, IL (PRWEB) May 01, 2013

Fischer Medical Technologies will work with the educational arm of the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS) by providing the use of the Fischer-Giotto Image for the introductory stereotactic breast biopsy workshop at the upcoming 14th annual ASBS conference. Fischer’s skilled technical staff from the U.S. and Italy will be assisting with the instruction.

The Fischer-Giotto Image is the only prone breast imaging system that uses the same detector during both the mammography exam and the biopsy procedure. This unique feature minimizes the need for additional exposures and dose, while providing superior quality images. The precise correlation of images produced by the dual-use detector provides more confidence, especially in vacuum assisted biopsies of subtle micro-calcifications.

The Fischer-Giotto Image, a FFDM (full-field digital mammography) and stereotactic breast biopsy system, was introduced in the U.S. in 2012. The first installation of the Fischer-Giotto Image was at Boulder Community Hospital, in Boulder, CO, replacing the Fischer Mammotest system. It is receiving enthusiastic reviews from both the physicians and technologists. Additional systems have been installed at Mankato Clinic (MN), Saratoga Hospital (NY) and Derby Family MedCenters (KS).

ASBS’s Stereotactic Breast Biopsy: An Introductory Course is a full-day session geared toward the breast surgeon with little or no prior experience in stereotactic breast biopsy. The course is currently filled to capacity, however, the Fischer-Giotto Image can be seen at the Fischer-Giotto Booth #203, at the ASBS conference, May 1-5, at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers.
