suspicious lumps in their breast, figuring out whether it's cancer or not - involves a breast biopsy. but that process just got a lot easier.. and as our doctor jo explains.. it's all thanks to research out of the university of south florida.. hailee carroll cherishes time with her daughter, now more than ever what color did you get today in school? green. green? that's because at the age of 25, hailee's already had four breast lumps surgically removed i've had three procedures in the last four years for the first two procedures, wires were placed into hailee's breast - pinpointing and guiding surgeons to the lumps. hailee says, that process didn't go smoothly the wire localization took a very long time. you couldn't move while you had the wire in place and it hurt to put the wire in. the lidocaine wore off and i had to have another dose. five months ago, with her last procedure, hailee's doctor tried something new. it's called savi scout. it's a game changer it could affect the lives of literally millions of women usf health's dr charles cox was not only the first to use this device in a patient, he helped develop it. instead of bulky wires that stick out of the breast, savi scout requires a tiny incision, and is basically injected into the breast through a large needle . ??how long does it take
4:27 am
like a geiger counter, savi scout isn't radio-active. instead it uses radar technology. infr-red light in the handpiece penetrates the breast reaching the reflector buried inside. that's the advantage in the breast because it's compressable - so even if it's at the bottom you'd be able to press down within a millimeter of where it is unlike wires that must be inserted in the hosptial just before surgery, savi scout can be placed in the doctors office up to a month in advance. a benefit that dr cox says will likely offset it's ???cost many times with wire localizations you're delayed between a half an hour and two hours one half an hour of delayed time in the operating room is between two and five thousand dollars hailee's device was placed three days before her surgery with the savi scout it was quick easy, they used the lidocaine, made a quick incision - placed it - i went back to work. i had the savi scout place that whole weekend i have two small children i could still pick them up and while she hopes she won't need any more procedures... going forward if i have to do it again i will absolutely do
4:28 am
savi scout is being used in more than 50 medical centers across the u.s. as for hailee, she works at u-s-f in a different department. her procedure was covered by insurance. still ahead in our next half hour: a snake comes crawling out of the hood of a man's car.. on his way home from work.. the video you have to see.. but first,
