SAVI SCOUT® is an alternative to previous wire localization methods, which placed a thin wire into the breast to mark the tumors location during surgery.
SAVI SCOUT® is a zero-radiation, wire-free system that helps our surgeons accurately pinpoint tumors before lumpectomy surgery to treat breast cancer.
Up to 30 days before surgery, a small reflector the size of a grain of rice is placed into the breast. The reflector is inactive until surgery, when safe, nonradioactive radar signals are used to pinpoint its location within your breast.
The nonradioactive surgical guidance technology guides our surgeons to the precise site of your tumor during surgery allowing them to more precisely and effectively remove the entire tumor.
The advantages of the SAVI SCOUT® technology may include:
SAVI SCOUT® is designed to help treat early-stage breast cancer patients who choose to have lumpectomy surgery.
