Breast Biopsy Site Markers with distinct shapes




    A Comprehensive Range

    The Hologic range of biopsy site markers come in multiple shapes, gauges and lengths. The markers are compatible for use with x-ray, ultrasound and MRI guided biopsies.  All markers come with an ergonomic and easy to use deployment device included.

    Tumark® Biopsy Site Markers

    Intelligently designed to provide long-term visibility. All Tumark Markers are non-bioabsorbable, biocompatible permanent markers offering excellent visibility and are designed to minimise movement.1

    SecurMark® Biopsy Site Markers

    Designed to minimise movement,2 this marker is highly visible in ultrasound upon deployment and still highly visible at 6 weeks post-biopsy, crucial in case of future breast interventions.3 The marker consists of two pieces, a permanent marker and a bioabsorbable suture-like netting.

    TriMark® Biopsy Site Markers

    Optimal for thin-breasted patients and superficial lesions. Smooth marker deployment to the biopsy site with rigid end deploy bevelled tip.

Devices show reduced displacement when compared to traditional metal surgical clips (28% and 27% vs 38% displacement, p = 0.001 and p = 0.0001). Visibility is dependent on surrounding tissue, experience may vary.
