The LOCalizer system marks the lesion with a miniature radiofrequency. The tag is designed to be implanted into the breast at any time prior to the day of surgery. No surgical wires may result in less stress for the patient and no more localization scheduling conflicts. The handheld Reader displays the distance to the Tag in millimeters and the Tag’s ID number on a bright screen, making it easy to read during the procedure. The LOCalizer system can read the tag from at least up to 60mm distance. The Surgical Probe is a pencilsized, single-use sterile probe that will guide the surgeon towards the Tag during the operation. The 8mm diameter of the probe allows for smaller incisions. The LOCalizer system was designed to report distance to the Tag without any lag or delay.
