TomoSpot Skin Markers Highlight Areas of Interest on 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis

TomoSpot Skin Markers 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis

October 2, 2014 — Tested and proven for 3-D breast tomosynthesis, TomoSPOT skin markers subtly highlight areas of interest on the breast with the clearest visualization of underlying tissue detail and the least potential for “slinky” artifact compared to other mammography skin markers.     

Combining tomosynthesis with a TomoSPOT skin marking protocol provides higher specificity, helps reduce radiologist interpretation time and supports efforts to achieve the lowest possible recall rates. 

TomoSPOT skin markers for 3-D breast tomosynthesis are available in 5 distinctive shapes to identify nipples, moles, scars, palpable masses and areas of pain/concern.
