An exciting upright breast biopsy procedure innovation is now available from Hologic with the Affirm system’s tomosynthesis biopsy option.* The revolutionary Affirm tomosynthesis biopsy option allows radiologists to locate and accurately target regions of interest for biopsy using tomosynthesis imaging. The Affirm tomosynthesis biopsy procedure offers a number of advantages over stereotactic biopsy procedures including: 

  • Ease of targeting lesions, particularly those visible only in tomosynthesis images 
  • Streamlined procedure steps and faster targeting, resulting in improved workflow and shorter patient procedure time 
  • Reduced patient dose as fewer exposures are required

With Affirm’s design, you can simply attach the system to the Selenia Dimensions system and start your tomosynthesis or stereotactic biopsy procedure; no additional workstation or equipment set-up is required. Users will benefit from full use of Selenia Dimensions’ technologys 70 cm Source to Image Distance, enabling easy patient positioning and biopsy device loading for upright biopsy procedures; and, easy patient positioning and ample workspace for tomosynthesis guided wire localization procedures.  

* Optional software license and Selenia® Dimensions® tomosynthesis system is required.
