Baptist Health offers new technology to breast cancer patients

Baptist Health Padukah is providing new technology to local cancer patients using the FDA-approved system, which helps surgeons find and remove breast tumors.

The centimeter’s magnetic resonance system hears magnetic markers, magnets and lymphatic detectors, which are used to signal tissue and breast cancer, according to Baptist Health News. The system has a detector that examines magnetic resonance imaging and detection, and Baptist Health describes this as “a simple and effective alternative to traditional methods of guiding wires for tissue localization and radioactive pathways for centrifugal node biopsy procedures.”

He said the hospital is the first of its kind in the region.

Dr. Christian Williams, a general surgeon with the Padukah Surgeon, shared information about the use of magnifying and magnifying this week, and the Breast Cancer Awareness Month is coming to an end this weekend.

“What I tell my patients is that it reduces anxiety when I use Magnesium. It reduces the time they spend in the hospital and reduces the risk of further surgery, and I think these are the three things that are most important to patients,” Williams told The Sun.

Magnesium, made from cast iron, is about the same size as rice grains. It is injected and can be stored for days or weeks during surgery. The process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, says Williams.

“And on the day of the surgery, I have a test to find out exactly where he is in the operating room and then it will allow me to cut better and avoid damage to the breast because I can find exactly where he is. With the test,” she said. “I can go on it right away.”

It has other benefits, such as lower positive margins (or cancer on the edges of removed tissues) and can have better cosmetic results.

“There is a study that shows that patients are more anxious compared to the wire,” Williams said.

There is less commitment on the day of surgery. It quickly removes them from here and the size of the positive margins decreases, so women have to go back to the operating room for a second time when using the sperm, because it is more accurate.

According to Baptist Health, Magsed can be used to identify “suspicious” lymph nodes before chemotherapy. In collaboration with Magtras, it helps surgeons create a “more targeted division” and determine the spread of cancer.

He said the hospital is a mapping agent that identifies certain lymph nodes. It helps to “target them properly.” This is important to determine the level of the tumor.

“I inject into the operating room, so the patient is already asleep. It’s not radioactive. It’s magnetic, and they don’t feel like going in because they’re asleep,” Williams said of the magnifying glass, which can reduce anxiety for patients compared to older methods.

The hospital received the system earlier this year. The Hospital Foundation was funded by the annual charity of the members of the community, the “Presidential Club”. The foundation donated $ 67,600.
