Indianapolis Hospitals Adopt Suros’ ATEC Breast Biopsy System

Suros Surgical Systems Inc., a Hologic company, has gained city-wide adoption of its minimally invasive breast biopsy system with nearly all hospitals and breast centers in Indianapolis now using the one-minute biopsy system. The Suros ATEC Breast Biopsy and Excision System is used for breast biopsy guided by x-ray or mammography and is a leading device used for MRI-guided breast biopsy worldwide.
The ATEC system can be used with the three most common breast imaging modalities – stereotactic X-ray, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
”One of the greatest assets of the Suros ATEC system is its simplicity,” said Dr. Lucia Spears, Indianapolis Breast Center. “It allows for quicker procedures, which my patients appreciate, yet we can still be confident that we are getting the samples we need and that offer the most confident diagnosis possible. Ultimately, every physician’s goal is to provide the patient with the best clinical care available.”
