Aurora Introduces Automated, Integrated MR-Guided Biopsy Technology

The Aurora Imaging Technology Inc. AuroraBIOPSY is a completely automated and fully integrated MR-guided biopsy technology exclusive to the Aurora Breast MRI System.
The Aurora System was designed specifically with a woman’s anatomy in mind, and the patient table provides the physician with the a large access area to the breasts for both medial and lateral approaches. It reportedly allows fast, accurate targeting and needle placement coordinated with the integrated scan console and image acquisition software displayed on a computer screen. Unlike the more commonly used manual methods which allow for human error, with the AuroraBIOPSY, physicians no longer need to perform manual calculations and then count grid squares to determine needle placement. The system features breast stabilization paddles for wide access to sample all breasts sizes — small or large — and are inclusive to the Aurora System’s integrated package. The AuroraBIOPSY also includes a needle guidance procedure that easily accommodates all current core biopsy or vacuum-assisted biopsy devices on the market today, according to the manufacturer.
