Fiducial markers are essential for target localization and tracking during EUS biopsy procedures. The Beacon™ FNF needle is pre-loaded with two solid gold fiducial markers and enables easy target visualization with simple and accurate fiducial placement.
Each fiducial marker features a knurled (ridged) exterior design that helps reduce migration.([FOOTNOTE=RMD=1004 Rev 01 page 28 & TR-20015 rev 01 page 4,10.],[ANCHOR=],[LINK=]) The markers generate a clear echogenic signature and can be clearly visualized across imaging modalities, including computed tomography, X-ray, and kilovoltage.
