Sirius Medical, a global leader in surgical marker navigation, proudly stands with Breast Cancer Awareness Month as it announces the introduction of the Sirius Pintuition Slim Probe with GPS Detect to the U.S. market. Recognizing the importance of innovative technology in the fight against breast cancer, this announcement highlights Sirius Medical's commitment to supporting those affected by the disease and advancing care and treatment options.

Designed as a crucial component of the Pintuition Surgical Marker Navigation System, the Slim Probe features a multi-sensor array with highly sensitive sensors. Its unmatched precision and accuracy in locating non-palpable tumors enable surgeons to perform precise procedures, ensuring optimal outcomes for patients. The new Slim Probe boasts a slim working length of 10 cm, facilitating access through smaller incisions while providing maximum flexibility for surgical oncoplastic techniques, crucial for effective breast cancer treatment.

"We take great pride in continuous innovation on the GPS Detect Pintuition platform. Because the platform is highly flexible, we can adapt and introduce improvements easily and efficiently," states Bram Schermers, CEO, of Sirius Medical. "The new Pintuition Slim Probe is just one example of this. We were able to reduce the tip surface area of the probe by 55%, without it affecting the precision and performance. We are proud to continue our leadership role in oncology surgery and to be honoring Breast Cancer Awareness Month."

"I do a lot of oncoplastic breast surgery and often the incisions are far removed from where the tumor is located.  I need 100% certainty that I can reliably find the tumor at the exact location," commented Barry Rosen, M.D., breast surgical oncologist, Chicago, IL. "The new Sirius Pintuition Slim probe not only allows me to access through a small incision but I also know I will be right on target."
