Multiple cut-outs allow the fiducial marker to fold (Int. patents)
- Line shaped markers are useful for detecting plastic deformations and tilting.
- Completely folded markers are suitable for systems with automatic marker detection.
- Anchors directly
- Trust each marker
- Save lead time and travel
Gold Anchor gets a great tissue attachment when the marker folds. The ball shaped marker becomes thicker than the needle tract and that prevents the marker from migrating in the needle tract when the needle is withdrawn.
Even as a line shaped marker the cut-outs in the Gold Anchor marker ensure a strong tissue attachment. The flexibility of the marker also allows it to absorb tissue deformation effectively.
Trust each marker
The stability of the marker in the tissue can also be verified by comparing the marker shape over time. One Gold Anchor marker can therefore be sufficient in selected cases where corrections for rotation and tilting are not performed. Preserved shape acts as a proof of no migration.

“Since incorporating The Gold Anchor into my practice, we have been able to treat patients with an increased level of efficiency, safety, and accuracy. Its thin needles allow for a more tolerable fiducial marker, which has led to significantly lower infection rates post placement.
The unique design minimizes migration after placement, which leads to consistent CT imaging as treatment continues. All of this allows for quick and accurate care.”
