Moving Beyond Wires – SCOUT® Radar Localization

 

The SCOUT system features radar technology to detect a reflector that is placed into the target tissue up to 30 days before surgery. The radiologist places the reflector using ultrasound or radiographic guidance. The surgeon uses the SCOUT guide, which emits the radar signal, to detect the location of the reflector and target tissue. Real-time audible and visual indicators from the radar console assist the surgeon in accurately locating the reflector and target tissue.
