tracer for sentinel lymph node biopsy procedures. Detected by the
Sentimag system, this non-radioactive tracer directs surgeons to
the first draining lymph nodes most likely to contain cancer to help
determine if it has spread.
Magseed marker
" The Sentimag localization system
is a magnetic instrument used
to locate Endomag's two other
products during surgery, using
its magnetic probe. The probe
uses a susceptometer, which is so
precise it can detect one millionth
of the Earth's magnetic field. In
practical terms, this means it can
be used to pinpoint the location of
a Magseed marker in the human
body to the millimetre. "
The company's liquid tracer was developed specifically for sentinel
node biopsy, which is the surgical procedure used to determine
whether cancer has spread beyond a primary tumor into the
patient's lymphatic system. The sentinel nodes are the first few
lymph nodes into which a tumor drains. The tiny magnetic Magtrace
particles are optimized to take the same path a spreading
cancer cell would through the lymphatic system, making it an ideal
The simple liquid allows any patient or any hospital to access the
Endomag system for breast cancer staging, a feature which has
caused it to take hold in many small, regional hospitals where it
brings a new level of precision to their capabilities, as well as in
large sophisticated treatment centers such as the Mayo Clinic and
many others.
The Magseed marker can be placed days, weeks or months
ahead of surgery. The procedure is very simple and can often be
completed in a matter of minutes. This flexibility means patients
and staff don't have to worry about additional procedures on the
day of surgery.
Basically, it replaces wire-guided surgery, a method invented 50
years ago and still the global standard in breast cancer removal.
Typically, on the day of surgery a steel wire which protrudes
through the breast is hooked onto the tumor to guide the procedure.
The Endomag system is both much simpler because no
wires and more accurate which can mean fewer follow-up surgeries,
says the company. It notes that, unfortunately, with guide
wires roughly 25% of the time a second surgery is needed usually
because some lesions are missed. " Using the Magseed marker
and our magnetic guidance system, Sentimag, has been shown to
reduce this down to as low as 6.5%. "
