How Pristina Serena reshapes the biopsy experience
“It’s very easy to change from one approach to the other in the same moment, you don’t have to change the patient or the orientation. Now, biopsy is like a “friendly” biopsy”.

Increase clinical confidence through accessibilityAccessibility is critical for accurate biopsy procedures, especially when facing challenging cases. Pristina Serena gives you the option of accessing the breast with the newly designed side approach to: create a large working space to ease patient positioning, reduce needle visibility to help ease patient anxiety, and accurately access all patients regardless of the location of lesion or microcalcifications. It also gives you the versatility to easily switch to a vertical approach with a simple adjustment, without decompressing or moving the patient.
Increase accuracy with precision targetingPinpoint incision entry for accurate needle placement and anesthesia delivery around the incision site with our laser guide. The automatic mechanical stop ensures the needle halts when it reaches the target. The only biopsy system with a needle guide that can be moved away during the procedure to keep the needle out of the field of view, to prevent it from altering images. Pristina Serena also provides remarkable image quality to visualize calcifications and make lesion conspicuity appear the same, equivalent to 2D screening and diagnostic imaging.
