Exciting clinical results for Tumark Vision

The very first clinical study on the SOMATEX® breast clip marker has recently been published in Breast Care. Rüland et al. from Kliniken Essen Mitte, Germany, and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany.  This study investigated the feasibility in everyday clinical practice, with a focus on ultrasound visibility and marker dislocation after placement of the clip.

The results are highly promising: For the group of 50 patients, no case of marker dislocation was reported. The marker expanded into the spherical shape after being released from the cannula in all cases and the marker could be detected in the ultrasound image in 100% of cases (both horizontal and vertical axis) after application.

Especially the 3-dimensional shape was described as helpful for ultrasound visualization: “With its 3D shape, it combines exceptional visibility with a promisingly low dislocation rate.”
