Developed with DeviceLab’s Industrial & Wireless Medical Design Services, Cianna Medical’s Breast Localization System Continues to Accumulate Awards
ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Nov. 6—DeviceLab Inc., an Orange County medical device design and manufacturing company, today announced it developed the winner of a 2017 Gold Annual Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA).
Created with DeviceLab’s wireless medical device design and industrial medical device design services, Cianna Medical, Inc.’s SCOUT® RADAR breast localization system earned top honors for MDEA’s “ER and OR Tools, Equipment and Supplies” category. This follows the device’s previous honors that include the 2016 Scientific Impact Award at the Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) Annual Meeting.
SCOUT is a wireless breast lesion localization tool that uses micro-impulse radar to localize and direct the removal of non-palpable breast lesions. It uses wire-free radar localization system to detect a reflector—smaller than a grain of rice—that is placed into the target tissue prior to the day of surgery and at the patient’s convenience.
Along with reducing medical procedures from two to one, SCOUT’s advantages include operating room compatibility, ±1-milimeter detection accuracy, and no significant MRI compatibility issues or artifact limitations.
According to Cianna Medical, this novel technology is in use by more than 130 healthcare providers in the United States.
“This is one of those achievements that is hard to describe,” said DeviceLab founder and CEO Doc Vu. “Although we’ve been excited to learn our efforts have contributed to SCOUT earning medical device design awards, we’re perhaps even more satisfied with knowing that it’s improving patient satisfaction and outcomes for breast cancer surgery patients.”
