Wire-free, radioactivity-free, hassle-free tumor localization.

Sirius Pintuition delivers a better alternative. Offering a pinpoint approach to non-palpable tumor localization, it provides you with intuitive guidance.


Sirius Pintuition gives you intuitive and robust guidance towards the marked target from any direction, by real-time distance detection in millimetres.

Directional guidance

Point source localization

Real time millimeter accuracy



The video below shows the actual performance of the Pintuition System. It shows the real-time distance measurement, directional guidance towards the seed and the ease of use, also in the vicinity of surgical instruments.

Surgeons demand change

Now, more than 40 years after the introduction of wire-guided localization, it’s time for a change. In recent years, new devices have been developed that overcome many of the disadvantages of wires. Of these, radioactive seed localization is the most prominent newcomer.

However, the use of tiny radioactive sources and its strict chain of custody requirements introduce radiation safety concerns, resulting in limited adoption.
