The new Visicoil MR is a helically-wound, flexible linear fiducial marker. The Visicoil MR hollow core design and multiple sizes mitigates the CT artifact often created by traditional gold seeds, offering you clearer visualization of the tissue to aid in faster and more accurate contouring. Visicoil MR's linear flexible design fixates and remains stable in soft tissue, giving you the confidence in accurate marker localization. Visicoil MR is available in some of the smallest needle sizes available for fiducial markers, including 21g and 22g needles. The benefits of smaller needles are improved patient safety and comfort during implantation. The smaller needles may also allow for faster CT sim after implant and ultimately treatment for your patients. The new Visicoil MR with enhanced MRI visibility allows you to see the marker more easily in MRI, both in T1 and T2. This makes for easier and faster MR/CT fusion.
