"Precise and reliable biopsies are critical in the quest for better patient outcomes," said Dr. Paul Guzzetta, Interventional Radiologist, Advocate Christ Medical Center. "By delivering greater tissue volume, the new SuperCore Advantage provides the pathologist with the tissue needed to perform necessary diagnostic tests and determine potentially life-altering diagnoses or treatment options for patients."

"Argon is proud of the innovation we are bringing to soft tissue biopsies. The SuperCore Advantage was designed with input from healthcare professionals to help address the clinical needs and wants of those who perform biopsies on patients at a critical crossroad in their lives," said George Leondis, President & CEO, Argon Medical.
