SCOUT radar localization system demonstrated at Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Symposium

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
ALISO VIEJO, CALIF., 14 September 2017 – Cianna Medical, Inc., today announced that its next-generation SCOUT radar localization system featuring real-time distance measurement will be exhibited for the first time at the Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Symposium in Chicago, IL, September 14-17, 2017.

The next-generation SCOUT technology advances the power of RADAR for breast tumor localization, making it the most precise and broadly applicable localizing system in the industry. It is clinically proven to be both consistent and predicable, and both physicians and patients will benefit from its unprecedented 60 mm range and 360˚ signal detection with +/- 1 mm accuracy. The real-time distance measurement and instant signal response will make it easier for surgeons to locate non-palpable tumors during breast surgery.

SCOUT, an FDA-cleared localization system, is the world’s only technology that utilizes radar in human tissue, and it is changing the standard of care for breast tumor localization. Previously published data established SCOUT as an accurate and reliable method to localize and excise breast lesions. SCOUT has been quickly adopted at over 150 leading medical facilities across the United States, and it has been used in more than 16,000 patient procedures to date.

Alice Police, M.D., breast surgeon, University of California, Irvine, recently completed validation of the next-generation SCOUT system that will measure and display distance in millimeters. “SCOUT is the standard of care for all my breast lesion localizations. The distance feature provides more control over the procedure, which is important for predictable outcomes,” Dr. Police stated.

The Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Symposium is a multidisciplinary event that brings together leading national and international medical, surgical and radiation oncologists to present, debate and evaluate cutting-edge technology and approaches in the management of breast cancer.

The FDA-cleared SCOUT system features a proprietary, highly sophisticated reflector that is precisely placed at the tumor site up to 30 days before a lumpectomy or surgical biopsy. During the procedure, the surgeon scans the breast using the SCOUT guide which emits 50 million pulses per second, allowing the surgeon to “lock” in on the reflector’s precise location with ± 1mm of accuracy. This higher level of localization precision allows better surgical planning that may improve cosmetic results, as less tissue may need to be removed. SCOUT has an exceptional detection range of 1mm – 60mm, documented migration of <2% across multiple studies, and is OR compatible.
