ABBI System

ABBI™ System

A device that facilitates minimally-invasive breast biopsies by defining a lesion with an accuracy of within 1 mm through stereotactic visualisation. The lesion is localised with an injection of dye and removed with a cannula entered through a tiny skin incision. It saves open biopsies in atypical hyperplasia and LCIS. In DCIS or invasive cancer, re-excision is required.
