Small Biopsy System for Superficial Bones
The lightweight, small bone biopsy system for use with small superficial bones.
As with all the Merit Bone Biopsy Systems, the Madison™ Mini System contains the Preston™ Bone Biopsy Needle, designed for either incremental sampling for blastic lesions or with optional syringe aspiration.
Features & Benefits
The Madison™ Mini Bone Biopsy System is a direct-access 13G system that operates without a drill but features a perforating cannula with a removable handle. This minimizes extra weight and is extremely useful for small rounded bones with little soft-tissue surroundings. Its features and benefits include:
- Direct 13G access to small, superficial bones
- Tactile control and small gauge to allow for accurate targeting of small lesions
- Removable handle to minimize exterior weight
- Optimized sample for sclerotic and blastic lesions
Using a direct approach, the Madison™ Mini System’s introducer is delivered to the bone surface, rotating counterclockwise to reduce soft tissue trauma. The introducer is then anchored in bone and advanced clockwise. The screw-lock handle of the introducer may then be removed entirely to minimize weight before inserting biopsy needle.
