FIT screening

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the most frequently diagnosed cancers. The good news is that CRC incidence and mortality can be reduced significantly if detected early enough.

Faecal immunochemical tests (FIT) are non-invasive and can detect blood in stool invisible to the naked eye. Due to its simplicity, FIT is currently considered the best non-invasive test for CRC screening.

Invest a little time in your own health by taking the FIT to prevent or detect colon cancer early on.

Magnetic SLNB procedure

With the Sentimag®/Sienna+® system, clinicians can quantify the amount of tracer located in a specific node relative to others. This higher tracer loading is a hallmark of the sentinel node identification process and is similar to the radioactive method. With Sienna+®, however, neither clinicians nor patients are exposed to any radiation at any stage.

Gamma system users have no issues adapting to the Sentimag® procedure as the probe handling is remarkably similar. As a result, almost no additional training is required. There aren’t special procedural requirements either, such as darkening the room for fluorescent localisation systems.

Thanks to the flexible workflow, which requires no scheduling between departments and almost no pre-operative preparation, surgical departments can arrange more SLNB procedures per day, can help those in need be treated sooner, and promote more out-patient surgery.
