Superior directionality and complete flexibility
The C-Trak Apollo gamma probe allows for the detection of radiation during sentinel node biopsies, parathyroid and tumour localisation. The C-Trak Apollo’s distinctive feature is our superior sensitivity and directionality,
but now we also offer wired or wireless connectivity with the same probe allowing for complete flexibility.
Using our proven and well respected OmniProbe® the Apollo allows for accurate and precise detection of various isotopes. Its superior directionality allows for less invasive dissections and in turn faster patient recovery.
Software for the C-Trak Apollo has been re-imagined, with several new features including autoranging capabilities, choice of four audible signals, easier switching between isotopes (such as Tc-99m and I-125), storage of calibration tests and prompts for renewing calibration sources.
The directionality of a gamma probe is not only determined by the collimation, but the energy of the gamma rays. Incoming gamma rays are deflected by scattering within the tissue. This scattered radiation, known as Compton Scattering, can give a false representation of where the specimen of interest is, especially if deep within the tissue.
The C-Trak Apollo system uniquely eliminates scattered radiation, therefore providing superior directionality. The surgeon can then dissect in the right direction to find the tissue of interest, making smaller incisions and dissecting less healthy tissue in the process.
