CSSS de Rouyn-Noranda

Contribute to purchase of a new stereotactic biopsy table.

Description

The CSSS de Rouyn-Noranda is the main breast cancer screening centre as well as one of the two Designated Reference Centres for Investigation (CRID) in all of Témiscamingue. When one of the two stereotactic biopsy tables in the region broke down, the Fondation hospitalière du CSSS de Rouyn-Noranda found itself in dire need of a new one. This new unit will benefit women in this region, as stereotactic biopsy is one of the best alternatives to surgical biopsy, which removes part of the breast. This type of device makes it possible to take samples or biopsies of suspect tissues that are otherwise difficult to reach through other techniques. Stereotactic biopsy is less invasive and results for this procedure can be obtained within a shorter period of time.
