[MOL] FDA Approves Breast Biopsy Imagyn System



WESTPORT, Jul 15 (Reuters) - Imagyn Medical Technologies, based in
                    Newport Beach, California, said on Monday that the
Food and Drug Administration had approved for marketing the company's
SiteSelect   percutaneous incisional breast biopsy system. Imagyn
explained in a  press release posted on PR Newswire that unlike
traditional surgical breast biopsies, SiteSelect is designed to remove
targeted tissue without taking normal tissue with it. In addition, the
system takes a larger sample size for diagnosis than needle biopsies.
The surgeon can use the SiteSelect biopsy system outside the operating
room with local anesthesia. 

Hope this information benefits

God Bless
