PointCoil Marker Kit
This kit was designed for SBRT IGRT marker placement in situations where one requires percutaneous marker placement. The goal was to offer a smaller diameter 19 GA needle with four 0.8 MM diameter by 5 MM long pure gold PointCoil Markers allowing the physician to place four or more discreet localization points with only one or two needle sticks. Cortex extends appreciation for input on this technique from Dr. C. Gribbin of NJ.
The 19 GA TROCAR needle with echogenic tip is optimally placed and the first marker is deployed. The needle is retracted the desired distance and a second marker deployed. The next location is chosen and the process repeated yielding four markers with only two insertions.
The kit includes four PointCoil Markers and one 19 GA by 17 CM long TROCAR needle. All pieces are provided sterilized in individual Tyvek pouches.
