Used for preoperative marking of non-palpable breast lesions
Bevel-cut needle tip guides the needle to the optimum position for placing the localisation hook wire.
Reference burnish mark, when visible just outside the needle hub on the spring-hook wire, provides visual assurance that the hook wire is within the needle tip during needle manipulation.
Needle is marked in 1cm increments for depth guidance during a procedure.
The reinforced tip of the spring-hook wore serves as a visual and palpable landmark for the surgeon to gauge distance to the lesion during dissection and reduces the risk of severing the hook wire.
