Development of a Targit training simulator

As we believe that surgeons and the interdisciplinary team should be equipped with the appropriate new practical skills required to perform the procedure, we have designed and built a model that can be used for training all aspects of this technology which accelerates the learning curve to the optimum level within shortest time.

The training simulator is realistic anatomically, and constructed from hotmelt thermoplastic polymer material with similar physical characteristics and radiation attenuation qualities to the breast and allows an accurate demonstration of technical aspects of TARGIT. Simulated tumours of different sizes and locations are implanted within the model to simulate a real life experience as far as possible. 

Participants get an opportunity to practice the implementation of the entire treatment workflow on this specially designed training simulator. There is also in-depth demonstration of the practical aspects by reviewing the recorded operative procedure.
