Clearly Identify Specimen Margin Orientation at a Glance
Surgeons employ a variety of methods to mark and communicate specimen margin orientation to pathologists.
The lack of a standardized protocol for communicating specimen margin orientation within a hospital or hospital system can often cause questions in pathology and potentially lead to misinterpretation of true orientation.
No guesswork, no questions, no delays
MarginMap's six distinctly-shaped, radiopaque charms are easily sutured to their corresponding margin to quickly and easily identify and communicate specimen orientation at a glance.
This helps eliminate delays and questions that may occur between the surgeon, operating room nurse, radiologist, and pathologist.
Unmistakable and precise
MarginMap provides an extremely precise method of specimen orientation over other methods. Sutures may get pulled deeper within the tissue, making it difficult to discern long from short or number of sutures used per margin.
MarginMap's charms stay visible and in place through movement, image manipulation, or orthogonal imaging.
