NODE SEEKER GAMMA PROBE
Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
Highest published sensitivity of any probe on the market for localizing sentinel lymph nodes (Zamburini, et al).
Intramedical Imaging develops, manufactures and markets a series of molecular imaging instruments to detect cancer during surgery. Molecular imaging is the most sensitive method of identifying abnormal tissues. The widespread application of molecular imaging in the operating room started with the advent of the sentinel node mapping for staging of melanoma and breast cancer. This technique is based on the injection of a radioactive tracer near the tumor site, and identifying the sentinel lymph nodes using a gamma detection probe. These principles have been scaled into other applications including Radioactive Seed Localization, Radioguided Parathyroidectomy and Tumor Localization.
