Sentinelle MR Breast Biopsy Table

Interesting day looking at the Sentinelle breast biopsy for MR.
Their Vanguard table is installed in the UCSF breast center MRI facility at Mount Zion.
The software they use to analyze and target lesions to biopsy is called Aegis, and is a very simple system to use.

The table is able to support the patient in a comfortable position with arms down by her side for the scan and biopsy. The table can also be moved out of the MR room to a separate biopsy room, so that the MR can continue being used, compared with other types of biopsy which require the patient to remain in close proximity to the magnet. Looking forward to using and developing biopsy with this table
