Magnetic Seed Localization

Magnetic Seed Localization (MSL) is a new technique to help Radiologists and Surgeons localize impalpable breast lesions.

Magseed® (the size of a grain of rice) is inserted into the lesion under image guidance, up to 30 days prior to surgery. This flexibility simplifies the scheduling of patients, and allows them to go straight to the OR on the day of surgery minimizing delays and enhancing the patient experience.

In the OR Magseed® is located using the Sentimag® probe and can be detected from any direction, regardless of seed orientation. The seed has no moving parts and can’t be damaged when implanted. It is still detectable even if accidentally cut during dissection.

During surgery, through a combination of audio and visual feedback, the surgeon can use location of the seed to orientate the specimen and guide dissection.
