Stereotactic biopsy for the brain
Inomed delivers the best instrument for every biopsy requirements
When the diagnosis of a brain tumor is uncertain, a stereotactic biopsy can provide clarity and confidence. To ensure that such clarity and confidence is delivered during a biopsy, inomed offers a sophisticated set of biopsy instruments for intra-operative stereotactic surgery.
From an evidence-based perspective, histopathological diagnosis of a brain tumor is the method with the highest accuracy rate for classifying a tumor. In this sense, stereotactic biopsy is the best method of treatment, especially for smaller and more deeply-seated lesions. This is considered to be the best way to classify a lesion accurately, and only this way can each and every patient receive the optimal treatment for their specific disease.
Planning a stereotactic biopsy can be performed with the inomed planning software (iPS): inomed’s software supports current methods for target point definition, visually, functionally and metabolically. Due to the high quality of inomed’s biopsy instruments, users are able to work precisely at the point from where tissue is to be removed. The inomed target point simulator helps to validate the design and verify the exact calibration of the instruments used.
The inomed portfolio comprises all current types of biopsy instruments, including forceps and probes (Sedan-type and Backlund).
Depending on personal preference or clinical requirements, disposable products and reusable products are also available. The sets include guide tubes and, if necessary, Mandarin and sterilization boxes.
