What is an FNA biopsy?
Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) is a diagnostic procedure used to investigate lumps or masses. In this technique, a thin, hollow needle is inserted into the mass for sampling of cells that, once stained, are examined under a microscope.
As indicated by numbers of international studies, ROSE method has the potential to improve the adequacy rates of fine-needle aspiration (FNA) cytology.
What ROSE method consists in?
Rapid On-Site Evaluation (ROSE) is a service that the cytopathology laboratory provides to patients and their physicians. The advantages of immediate on-site evaluation include assurance of FNA adequacy, the ability to triage the specimen, shorten the length of procedure, help guide and direct the biopsy in real time, and overall assist in managing the patient’s procedure with the performing clinician at the point of care.
ROSE service for FNA biopsy is a time-limited procedure which occurs while patients are subject to varying degrees of sedation and while they have endoscopes or large needles placed within the cavity or abdomen. As such, it is important to collect and deliver images of the highest quality as quickly as possible.
Milestone’s mission to help Patients is achieved by continuously developing new ideas that can bring innovative products to the market, with the final goal of improving the diagnostic process. In cooperation with Professor Mousa Al Abbadi, Milestone has created a new innovative product, the RoseSTATION, an all-in-one mobile workstation for Rapid On-Site Evaluation (ROSE) of FNA cytology.
Why RoseSTATION is needed by cytologists?
RoseSTATION is the Milestone solution to rapidly arrive on-site with a standardized work platform containing all tools required to accomplish this important diagnostic task.
