Mammography vendor Loradhas made advances in retrofitting its digital breast biopsy technologyto the StereoLoc upright needle biopsy system, according to presidentHal Kirshner. Lorad, of Danbury, CT, will display a version ofits DSM (digital spot mammography) device that has been adaptedto work with the StereoLoc biopsy guide on the M-III mammographyunit.

The adaptation will enable Lorad users to conduct digitallyguided needle biopsies with patients in the upright position.Using the DSM/StereoLoc/M-III combination will give mammographersmore flexibility in conducting breast biopsy procedures, Kirshnersaid. The combination also gives mammographers the advantage ofusing the motor-driven DSM system.

Lorad will also display the latest work on its full-breastdigital mammography system. The company will once again show awork-in-progress prototype in its exhibit booth, and will displayboth hard- and soft-copy images acquired with the system thatshow its penetration of dense breast tissue.
