Suros Surgical Systems of Indianapolis has designed a new needle guide for use with its ATEC breast biopsy and excision system and Lorad stereotactic tables. The new guide virtually eliminates the long-time problem of needle-tip deflection with vacuum-assisted biopsy devices, according to the company. The guide captures the shaft of the needle in a 360º radius, minimizing the possibility of needle deflection that often affects postfire needle accuracy. The new Suros product complements an existing line of needle guides offered for use with the Fischer and Instrumentarium stereotactic tables. It is compatible with ultrasound, stereotactic, and MRI guidance.
