Sentimag Probes

Choose an amount to donate


Sentimag probes are used in a new procedure for Grand River’s breast cancer program. This breast biopsy procedure a diagnostic tool for breast cancer that is done in the OR; it is a less invasive surgery that replaces the previously used 'needle localization' procedure.

Each Sentimag probe requires 2.5 to 3 hours turnaround time to reprocess, and with the probes requiring reprocessing and sterilzation for each case, the hospital is greatly limited in how many biopsies can be done each day. Additional Sentimag probes would allow the surgeon to book more breast biopsy cases (up to four each day). This in turn will minimize the wait times for this type of surgery and enable patients to undergo this breast biopsy procedure in a more timely manner.

In September 2022, we granted over $31,657 to the hospital for additional Sentimag probes.
