    Gain the Advantage of Time

    We understand that reducing time under compression for your patients during a breast biopsy procedure is essential to deliver an improved patient experience. The Brevera Breast Biopsy system in combination with CorLumina® Imaging Technology streamlines the entire breast biopsy process from start to finish. This includes real-time imaging for instant verification and automated post-biopsy specimen handling.1-3

    Reduced Procedural Steps

    There is no need to move to another room for imaging, no waiting for sample verification and fewer interruptions to your screening schedule. Instead, you can experience the detailed, real-time, accurate information you need to improve patient care and enhance your clinical workflow.1-3

    Improve Patient Experience

    Fast, accurate and streamlined procedures mean less time under compression and result in a more positive and compassionate biopsy experience for you and your patient.2,3
