The Basic Bone Biopsy System
The everyday ‘go-to’ system, the Westbrook Bone Biopsy System is intended for basic, straightforward bone biopsy procedures or superficial bone lesions.
The trocar-tip stylet and tapered-tip cannula introducer features a depth-gauge stopper and centimeter markings. As with all the Merit Bone Biopsy Systems, the Westbrook Bone Biopsy System contains the Preston™ Bone Biopsy Needle, designed for either incremental sampling for blastic lesions or with optional syringe aspiration.
Features & Benefits
The Westbrook™ Bone Biopsy System is our standard, entry-level bone biopsy system. It is designed for accessing superficial lesions in soft or normal-density bone, where it is unnecessary to traverse bone before sampling. Its features include:
- Direct access and comfortable handling
- Fast and efficient penetration of normal-density bone
- High-grade steel for outstanding durability
- Preston™ Bone Biopsy Needle for multiple, optimized lesion sampling
The Westbrook™ System is available in 11G in two lengths.
Using a direct approach, the introducer is advanced through soft tissue and anchored into bone.
If crossing dense cortex is required, a Preston™ Hard Bone Introducer (supplied as a separate accessory) may be additionally used after placing the introducer needle.
