NeoDynamics has recently participated in two scientific congresses where leading international experts in Senology discussed advancements within diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer; The Annual Congress of the Austrian Society of Senology, in Vienna, Austria, and the Annual Congress of the Swiss Society of Senology, in Lucerne, Switzerland. The congresses were the first Senology meetings following the pandemic that took place in real life, which enabled physicians to gain hands-on experience of the new biopsy system.
In conjunction with the joint congress of MIBB (Swiss working group for minimally invasive breast interventions) and the Swiss Society of Senology, the new biopsy system was presented by Dr Stefan Paepke, Klinikum rechts der Isar, from Munich, Germany. In addition, a specific certification course for breast vacuum biopsies was arranged by MIBB, which included a hands-on workshop, where physicians were able to test the final commercial version of NeoNavia for the first time.
“NeoNavia is certainly an exciting new biopsy technology and a useful new tool for breast cancer diagnosis. There was a high interest by the attendees to try the system both at the booth and in the hands-on workshop. I’m looking forward to using the platform in clinical practice and am delighted to join the NeoDynamics Advisory Board and help move this project forward “, said Dr. Claudia Kurtz, senior radiologist at Cantonal Hospital Lucerne and president of the MIBB working group.
“It was really exciting to see how the hands-on experience during the workshop increased the physicians understanding of the value that the new pulse biopsy technology brings, and how the three different needle options enable physicians to tailor the biopsy to the location and type of lesion”, said Kai-Uwe Schässburger, Ph.D. Director Clinical Development & Medical Affairs, NeoDynamics. “The value of hands-on experience cannot be underestimated and will become an integral part of our strategy when we introduce NeoNavia to a broader audience”.
