In the study, the LumaGEM MBI System established its clinical importance by demonstrating a reduction in radiation dose from 20mCi3 to 8mCi, a dose reduction not achievable with older-generation scintillating gamma cameras, known as scintimammography or breast-specific gamma imaging systems4.
Screening has become more complicated with introduction of positron emission mammography (PEM) and breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) which involves much higher radiation levels and injection of radio-opaque dye which increase the risk of cancer up to 20 to 30 times compared with traditional X-rays (Morales, 2013).
Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (an imaging technique that is a follow-up to mammography that can see lesions independent of tissue density and discover early stage cancer) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (which creates detailed pictures of the breast and gives physicians information about the location and nature of the cancerous or non-cancerous mass).
New studies show improved detection with techniques such as breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI), also referred to as molecular breast imaging; positron emission mammography (PEM), and more recently, combination PET and MR imaging.
Radionuclide imaging of the breast covers a number of different forms of nuclear medicine scans, from positron emission mammography (PEM) to breast-specific gamma imaging to molecular breast imaging (MBI).
Summary: Dilon Diagnostics, the leader in molecular breast imaging (MBI) also known as Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) and Philips (NYSE:PHG) (NYSE:AEX:) (NYSE:PHI) , today announce that they have entered into a distribution agreement.
Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) - a molecular imaging procedure, along with breast MRI, are expected to increase at a compound growth rate of 28 percent over the next five years, according to the Millennium Research Group's U.
In a retrospective study in 159 women with at least one biopsy-proven cancer, follow-up breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI) identified clinically and mammographically occult cancer in 14 of 45 lesions.
