Woman's Hospital is proud to announce the acquisition of a State of the Art Digital Stereotactic biopsy System. With this addition we are now able to offer comprehensive Breast Cancer Screening and Diagnostic Services at the Woman's Center for Breast Care.

The MultiCareTM Platinum prone breast biopsy table offers the latest advances in stereotactic technology making it the ideal system for characterization of calcifications, masses and architectural distortion. Intuitive Cartesian Coordinates help to ensure both accurate targeting (+/- 1 mm) and safe, easy access to most lesions, including the chest wall and axillary regions.

In addition to providing efficient and precise breast biopsy technology, the MultiCare Platinum table also addresses patient care and comfort needs. Hologic has developed the MultiCare Maximum Comfort Package, offering a collection of ergonomically engineered cushions that provide targeted pressure point support for most body types and lesions. Also included are several interchangeable apertures to allow for more customized positioning, providing better access for more efficient procedures. The Maximum Comfort Package also addresses the limitations of the "arm-through" technique by providing a cushion and aperture with wider openings, as well as an arm support system.

We have available the EvivaTM breast biopsy device for performing Stereotactic biopsies. Eviva incorporates quiet pneumatic firing, pain management and end-deploy site marking in an integrated system. This integrated solution delivers superior clinical results with unparalleled patient benefits while treating the broadest spectrum of patients
