Eviva Breast Biopsy System

At Hologic, we make it our business to define the patient experience in stereotactic and 3D-guided breast biopsy. Listening to physicians and technologists about the women they treat is the foundation for the Eviva breast biopsy device’s innovative design. 


Hologic is taking breast biopsy to a higher standard with the Eviva breast biopsy system. Designed with enhanced technology compared to the ATEC breast biopsy device, the Eviva system combines better patient access with seamless integration for a compassionate, minimally invasive breast biopsy. Designed for both prone and upright systems, the Eviva breast biopsy system offers multiple device options to reach the broadest spectrum of patients with the utmost care. This innovative system delivers these important features with every breast biopsy performed. 

Compassionate care:

  • 4.5-second tissue acquisition cycle makes for a quick and efficient biopsy procedure.
  • Saline lavage and constant aspiration assists in consistent core retrieval, minimizing pain and bleeding.
  • Minimal incision size for a positive cosmetic outcome.

Seamless integration:

  • One unified system for biopsy and site marking.
  • Allows physicians to easily deliver local anesthetic directly to the biopsy site during every cycle without interruption.

Maximum patient access:

  • Optimized access to challenging lesions.
  • Biopsy needle options for a wider spectrum of patients.

Tactile thumb wheel:

  • A tactile thumb wheel provides direct control of the tissue sampling location during the biopsy procedure.

Remote firing:

  • A quiet, remote firing mechanism reduces patient anxiety during rapid advancement into the breast.

Remote tissue filter:

  • Improved access to collected tissue samples in a protected remote chamber.

Integrated biopsy site marking:

  • End-deploy biopsy site marking provides streamlined and accurate marker placement.

Saline lavage:

  • Helps ensure consistent retrieval of high quality tissue samples. This feature has also been shown to reduce the rate of hematoma occurrence by 25%, as well as a reduction in the average size of hematoma.1


  • Enables physicians to automatically or manually deliver local anesthetic directly to the biopsy site without interrupting the procedure.
