With the increased incidence of early-stage breast cancer detection, intra-operative tumor localization has become essential for optimal breast-conserving surgery. We provide the next generation of accurate and hassle-free tumor localization for breast cancer. The Magnetic Marker Localization (MaMaLoc) technology was developed at the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Amsterdam (NKI-AvL) in co-operation with the University of Twente. Its accurate, cost-efficient and simple nature provides clear benefits for patients, surgeons, and clinics alike.
The MaMaLoc technology is the answer to inaccurate wire-guided procedures as well as cumbersome radioactive approaches.
The MaMaLoc technique provides a true signal hotspot for the surgeon to operate towards. He can continually assess and reassess his surgical approach.
The MaMaLoc marker may be implanted up days in advance of surgery, facilitating flexible hospital logistics.
Increased surgical accuracy and the confidence of removing the right tumour will lead to optimized surgical margins and in turn, optimal cosmetic outcome for your patients.
The use of magnetism, rather than radioactivity greatly streamlines the implementation process of this novel technology.
