SAVI SCOUT Surgical Guidance System

The SAVI SCOUT® surgical guidance system is an innovative technology that improves pre-surgical tumor scouting to help surgeons accurately pinpoint a breast tumor before surgery. The sophisticated technology helps surgeons with:

  • Tumor localization
  • Surgical planning
  • Surgical guidance
  • Confirmation of the tissue to be remove 

The SAVI SCOUT® surgical guidance system uses no radiation and no wires. Instead, a small staple-sized device (reflector) is placed in the tissue target up to seven days prior to surgery. The SAVI SCOUT, which uses uses radar technology, guides the surgeon to precisely target the breast tissue during a lumpectomy or excisional biopsy procedure, plan the incision and direct surgery. This system offers many advantages to patients, including:

  • Added comfort during procedure since no invasive guide wires are used
  • Decreased wait times between radiology and surgery
  • Easier localization of the breast tumor
  • Enhanced surgical success of targeted tumors
  • FDA approved for targeting other non-breast tissues, including lymph nodes and other body parts
  • Fewer surgical delays
  • Improved patient satisfaction and well-being

SAVI SCOUT® is currently available to patients who are seen at any of the three Memorial Women’s Imaging Centers and who plan to have surgery at either of the two Memorial Cancer Institute locations: Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood or Memorial Hospital West.
