Newton, MA – Scion Medical Technologies, LLC announces the introduction of the Cassi™ Beacon™ tissue marker, the company’s newest addition to the Cassi™ breast biopsy product portfolio.
The Cassi Beacon tissue marker is a single use marker which is placed into soft tissue during breast biopsy procedures to radiographically mark a surgical site for easy location during a surgical procedure or for future procedures. The marker provides excellent and permanent visualization under the major imaging modalities; ultrasound, x-ray, mammography, and MRI. The Beacon is the first breast biopsy marker to use Polyetherketoneketone (PEKK) Polymers which are used routinely in surgical implants and dental devices.
“We are very excited about the introduction of the Beacon tissue marker to the Cassi family of biopsy products. Beacon was developed based on physician feedback for improved and permanent marker visibility under ultrasound imaging. We are pleased to offer doctors this innovative tool for the management of their breast cancer patients.” – Joseph Siletto, CEO
