    It's about unmatched long term ultrasound visibility...

    HydroMARK breast markers are titanium clips embedded in a patented hydrogel carrier. Once implanted in tissue the hydrogel carrier begins to absorb fluid and swells to 200% of its original size in 24 hours. The gel becomes 90% water to provide HydroMARK with its characteristic hypoechoic appearance on ultrasound that lasts up to 12 months and remains visible even after neoadjuvent chemotherapy.

    HydroMARK Mini

    The HydroMARK Mini offers the same benefits as the original HydroMARK but in a smaller profile marker.

    The hydrogel carrier is approximately two thirds the size of the standard HydroMARK and housed in a smaller 18g delivery system making it an ideal choice for:

    • Superficial lesions
    • Patients with small breasts or male patients
    • Smaller lesions
    • Hard calcified lesions
