Clinical Trial

The reality is that breast conserving surgery is unsuccessful in removing the entire tumors in 1 out of 5 cases. Removal of the remaining tumor typically requires repeating the surgery.

A new clinical trial is studying if the investigational Breast Cancer Locator (BCL™) System used during surgery can help surgeons achieve the primary objective of reducing positive margins.

The Breast Cancer Locator™ Trial is a prospective, multicenter, 1:1, randomized, controlled pivotal trial of the BCL™ System. The BCL™ System is used to guide tumor removal for breast cancer compared to traditional wire localization.
