Using innovative technology to improve breast cancer treatment and minimize damage to healthy tissue
Sirius Medical developed a non-radioactive system that makes locating and surgical removal of non-palpable breast tumors more comfortable for the patient. During the treatment, a magnetic marker is positioned within non-palpable breast tumors. Using the high accurate Sirius Pintuition system, the marker, and with it the tumor, are located after which the tumor can be surgically removed. This pinpoint approach optimizes the surgery, allowing surgeons to navigate towards the tumor more precisely and minimizing damage to healthy tissue.
Involved in the production of the Pintuition system
Batenburg Applied Technologies is involved in the development of the Sirius Medical's Pintuition system and assembles the entire medical unit. During development we contributed ideas for the housing, the registration of the individual components, and the selection of critical electronics. To house the technical part of the system, a housing from our Swiss supplier Elma was selected and redesigned for this medical purpose.
Sirius obtained the CE mark for the Pintuition system in 2021 and is now taking steps to acquire the UL recognition. Both certifications demonstrate our mutual commitment as well as the safety and quality of the system.
