Powered Bone Access System
Meet the Arrow®
Trusted performance to obtain high-quality bone lesion samples.
For practitioners, pathologists, and patients this first of its kind system has set a new standard for bone lesion biopsies. Using proprietary technology, it provides rapid access to difficult bone lesions with less physical effort needed for needle advancement.1 Its use results in high quality specimens, easier biopsy retrieval, and potentially reduced radiation exposure due to a shorter procedure time, especially with hard bones and difficult to reach bone lesions.2 If you haven’t made the switch, rethink your patients’ bone lesion biopsy procedure.
- As compared to manual needles, the Arrow® OnControl® Powered Bone Lesion Biopsy System delivers consistently larger, high-quality core specimens.3,4
- This may reduce the number of second-attempt procedures required3-5 and result in more usable area for diagnosis.3,4
Increased user control 1-2
- Provides precise control6 and rapid access to difficult bone lesions.1
- May result in a bone biopsy procedure time that is up to 55% faster than with manual needles.3-5, 7
- Specially engineered needle system makes access to hard bones easy.
- Comprehensive coaxial system trays contain the components needed for multiple, high-quality bone lesion biopsies from a single penetration.
Less Patient Pain
- Reduced pain can help ensure patient compliance with ongoing testing.4-5
- Potentially reduced radiation exposure to patients and operators, especially with hard bones and difficult to reach lesions, due to a shorter procedure time.2
