Date:2/12/2013

TUCSON, Ariz., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Faxitron, the leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of dedicated digital specimen radiography systems  expands their solution for intraoperative imaging of breast specimens with the introduction of the Faxitron® Wedge™, a revolutionary new surgical specimen container.  The Wedge™ is designed to work in conjunction with the Faxitron® BioVision, allowing surgeons to quickly and simply image the specimen from multiple views, without compromising image quality, facilitating better gross margin assessment and potentially lowering re-excision rates.

Clinical findings have illustrated the importance of radiographically marking the tissue specimen and utilizing two orthogonal views to significantly reduce re-excision rates during breast conservation surgery.  Intra-operative specimen radiography has become a common practice in most breast programs.  However, obtaining orthogonal views is not widely practiced, predominately because there has not been a consistent, reliable means of performing this in the surgical suite. 

Joshua Glaser , MD, Medical Director of Breast Services, SSM in St. Louis, Missouri, participated in early clinical cases with the Wedge™. "The Faxitron® Wedge™ improves my accuracy in assessing gross margins, thus reducing possible re-excisions", stated Dr. Glaser.

Commenting on the launch, Paul Murtagh , Chairman & CEO, adds, "Faxitron is constantly striving to advance best practices in the surgical management of breast cancer.  The Wedge™ is another tool that surgeons can use to minimize re-excision rates for their patients.   We are thrilled to be able to bring another innovative product to the market in our ongoing commitment to play a central role in the critical 'standard of care' chain of diagnosing and treating breast cancer."
