Radiological Clip Design Using Ultrasound Identification to Improve Localization

Radiological clips, or markers, are inserted at the time of biopsy to mark tumor locations, lesions and lymph nodes for consistent identification over time and multiple treatments. Prof. Michael Oelze has developed a new type of radiological clip that have a unique ultrasonic signal, acting like both a beacon and a barcode. This technology can be particularly helpful to mark multiple areas that are close together.
