SCOUT® Radar Localization — Clinical Data

Merit Oncology - Reducing the Burden of Breast Cancer on Women and Their Families

CLINICAL DATA & ADVANCED THERAPY INFORMATION

FEATURED STUDY

Use of SCOUT Reflectors to Identify the Previously Biopsied Node Significantly Improves the Probability of Surgical Removal and Subsequently Reduces the False Negative Cancer Rate

SURGICAL GOALS

  • Removal of PBN and low false-negative rate.


PATIENTS STUDIED

  • Standard SLNB (n=19): Conventional sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) using technetium-99 radiotracer and isosulfan blue dye
  • SCOUT SLNB (n=19): SLNB + Reflector-guided PBN removal with Reflector placed into biopsied/clipped node
    • Reflectors placed, on average, 2 days prior to surgery

KEY RESULTS

  • Only 47.4% (9 of 19) biopsied nodes were removed with conventional SLNB
    • False negative rate = 33.3%
  • All (19/19) biopsied nodes were identified and removed with SCOUT
    • False negative rate = 0% (optimal goal)
