The various sizes and hollow core of VISICOIL reduces the image artifact caused by solid gold markers in many imaging machines. Reduced artifact aids by decreased processing time, more precise contouring. This also help in hypofractionation where escalated dosing and tighter margins are required.
The helical design of VISICOIL provides extreme flexibility of the marker. This allows the marker to easily be placed in delicate tissues such as the Pancreas, Liver, Lung, Cervix, Breast, Bladder, and more. The flexible VISICOIL markers conforms and moves with deformable tissue potentially helping to mitigate migration.
Today’s high tech imaging equipment and accurate treatment capabilities should no longer rely on 1st generation fiducial markers. With escalated dosing and tighter margins, the need for improved marker reliability to treat your patients with confidence is clear. VISICOIL has demonstrated excellent stability in soft tissue with visibility needed to optimize their capabilities. When top manufacturers of these machines and associated devices need a marker to demonstrate how well their equipment works, they choose VISICOIL.
We are pleased with the helical design of the VISICOIL as we could not verify any marker migration from the initial position in or close to the lung tumor.

Implanted (VISICOIL) markers are stable within tumors throughout the treatment process regardless of implantation method.

The coil structure of the marker we used (VISICOIL) is the likely reason for stability of the marker over time.

We feel the coiled design lessens potential for migration.
