Tech applying Beekley Medical SPOT skin marker to patient before mammogram

When patients or new staff members inquire why mammography skin markers are used in your breast imaging center what do you tell them?

You know the Beekley Skin Marking System® for Mammography provides clear communication for radiologists with an effective way to identify nipples, raised moles, surgical scars, palpable masses, and non-palpable areas of concern or pain for precise interpretation. As a result, mammograms can be more accurate, and callbacks can be reduced.

You know each of the five shape serves a distinct purpose:
  • Nipple markers improve accuracy and can be used on every patient to differentiate a retro areolar finding from the nipple.
  • Mole markers can eliminate questions and help reduce avoidable callbacks.
  • Scar markers act as a reference point and eliminate confusion by identifying the location of a biopsy or previous surgery.
  • Palpable mass markers readily identify the symptomatic area.
  • Non-palpable areas of concern or focal pain markers indicate the precise location of an area in question.

But, how do you synthesize that information in a simple and engaging way?
