IZI Medical Products Introduces Comprehensive Line of Products for Improved Mammography Imaging and Patient Comfort

BALTIMORE, MD--(Marketwire - Jun 22, 2011) - IZI Medical Products, a leading innovator, manufacturer and distributor of quality medical devices, today announced the expansion of its line of mammography products. For the past decade, IZI Medical Products has leveraged manufacturing and sales excellence to bring innovative solutions to market that help clinicians improve accuracy, decrease procedural time, save money, and increase patient comfort. The expanded line of mammography products includes the CareCushion(TM) mammography pad, ColdCare(TM) Pack, Indicator(R) Radiolucent Markers, and Indicator(R) Radiopaque Markers which include new nipple markers.

"Because we care about women's health and the value of accuracy and time, IZI Medical Products now has a full line of products that enhance the way mammography procedures are performed," said Helen Shafer, chief executive officer of IZI Medical Products. "Our commitment to quality and customer service, as well as competitive pricing, is among the reasons why so many providers choose our products."

The new CareCushion™ mammography pad improves patient comfort during mammography procedures. Technicians are able to quickly and easily apply the CareCushion to the front side of the image detector (bucky) without forming gaps or air bubbles, which improves center workflow. The CareCushion from IZI features substantial padding that improves patient comfort and provides a cleaner, softer, warmer surface resulting in greater patient compliancy throughout the mammogram procedure. The CareCushion is available in three sizes including: 18cm x 24cm (CC6001), 25cm x 29cm (CC6002) and 29cm x 30cm (CC6003) to accommodate various receptor plate and breast sizes. Convenient dispenser boxes of 25 CareCushion pads are disposable or can be returned to IZI Medical Products for disposal.

ColdCare™ Pack
The new ColdCare™ Pack gel pad offers long-lasting cold therapy for patient comfort following biopsy procedures to reduce swelling and bruising. Offering convenient cold therapy for up to three times longer than ice or chemical packs, ColdCare Packs allow patients to receive soothing pain relief discreetly beneath clothing for 45 to 60 minutes. The ColdCare Pack measures three inches in diameter and ships in boxes of 25. Two options are available including the ColdCare WingPack (CP1001) that features two adhesive side tabs that secure the gel pad directly to the affected area and the ColdCare Pack (CP1002) that does not include adhesive tabs and can be worn under clothing by tucking into an undergarment. The ColdCare Pack is reusable, providing patients with continued comfort at home.

Indicator® Radiolucent Mammography Markers
Indicator® Radiolucent Mammography Markers from IZI Medical Products is a reference marker that identifies moles, scars and masses during mammography procedures. Indicator Radiolucent Markers help facilitate quick, accurate diagnosis by eliminating artifacts and revealing underlying pathology. The markers feature a flat design that prevents indentation and artifacts. Double-pull tabs allow for easy application and removal. The disposable and cost effective markers are available in circles, triangles and lines in a variety of sizes.

Indicator® Radiopaque Mammography Markers
Indicator® Radiopaque Mammography Markers from IZI Medical Products are used in a variety of imaging procedures to identify any point of interest, such a nipples, masses, scar tissue, moles or birthmarks with no artifacts. The markers prevent tissue indentation and the adhesive backing aids in precise marker placement. The disposable markers are available in a variety of shapes and sizes including crosses, lines and arrows. The newest product in IZI's mammography offering is the BB, a high-density nipple marker that stays adhered throughout imaging procedures and offers flexibility for healthcare professionals.
