Gamma probe system trial is a success at UHCW
The C-Trak Galaxy gamma probe system available from Southern Scientific is used for the detection of radiation during sentinel node biopsies in breast, head and neck, melanoma and other intraoperative cancer surgeries. Head of nuclear medicine at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust (UHCW) Dr James Cullis explained why the system has been chosen for surgeons specialising in head and neck cases: “Compared to competitors, we found the Galaxy much easier to use and it provided better spatial resolution for surgeons.”
The OmniProbe has removable collimators making it flexible for a variety of procedures and the C-Trak Galaxy system can be fitted with alternative probes for specialist applications.
