FDA Approves Wire-Free Breast Tumor Locator For Long-Term Use.

Medscape (11/16, Nelson) reports that the Food and Drug Administration approved for long-term use the SAVI Scout reflector, a wire-free, nonradioactive breast tumor localization device that is part of the SAVI Scout surgical guidance system made by Cianna Medical Inc. Medscape says, “The system uses an intratumoral electromagnetic wave device, implanted under ultrasound or mammographic guidance, to localize occult breast lesions with a probe during surgery.” The approval is important because “with the new FDA clearance, it can remain in place during the period between biopsy and surgery,” reducing the need for reexcision.
