Affirm®: A Closer Look at Upright Stereotactic Biopsy

The introduction of the Affirm® system has indeed marked a groundbreaking shift in the realm of breast biopsies. Traditional biopsy methods often left patients feeling uncomfortable, but with the innovation of the Upright Stereotactic Biopsy, patients can now undergo the procedure in an upright position, significantly improving their comfort. This novel approach not only prioritizes patient well-being but also enhances the precision of the biopsy, ensuring that results are as accurate as possible while minimizing any potential discomfort.

What sets the Affirm® system apart is its utilization of cutting-edge imaging technology, including 3D mammography and digital breast tomosynthesis. These advanced imaging techniques generate high-resolution images of breast tissue, offering detailed insights into the location and characteristics of any abnormalities. This invaluable information equips healthcare professionals with the tools they need to make precise diagnoses, ultimately leading to more effective treatment plans and better patient outcomes.

The Affirm® Biopsy Procedure

When a suspicious area is detected during a routine mammogram or breast examination, a biopsy may be necessary to determine whether the abnormality is cancerous or benign. The Affirm® system streamlines this process.

Patient Preparation: The patient is positioned comfortably in an upright chair designed for the procedure. This allows for easy access to the breast.

Image Acquisition: Affirm® captures images of the breast tissue, precisely locating the abnormal area.

Targeting and Biopsy: Once the target is identified, a biopsy needle is guided to the precise location with the help of real-time imaging. This minimizes the risk of errors and ensures a highly accurate biopsy.

Sample Collection: A tissue sample is collected and sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Quick Results: The efficient process of Affirm® often provides quick results, enabling prompt decision-making regarding further treatment.
