Dilon Technologies Announces National Agreement with MedAssets
Date:6/19/2008

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Dilon Technologies, makers of a gamma imaging system optimized for early breast cancer detection, announced today that they have signed a three-year agreement with one of the nation's largest group purchasing organizations, MedAssets Supply Chain Systems, a MedAssets company (Nasdaq: MDAS). The agreement, with an effective date of June 1, 2008 provides MedAssets' customers access to Dilon's cornerstone product, The Dilon 6800 Gamma Camera.

The Dilon 6800 performs a molecular breast imaging technique called Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI), which can detect lesions independent of tissue density and discover very early stage cancers. BSGI serves as a complementary diagnostic adjunct procedure to mammography and ultrasound for difficult-to-diagnose patients. With BSGI, the patient receives a radioactive tracing agent that is absorbed by all the cells in the body. Cancerous cells in the breast, due to their increased rate of metabolic activity, absorb a greater amount of the tracing agent than normal, healthy cells and generally appear as "hot spots" on the BSGI image.

BSGI is ideal for patients with mammograms that are difficult to interpret due to a variety of factors, such as: dense breast tissue, suspicious areas on a mammogram, lumps that can be felt but not seen with mammography or ultrasound, implants and breast augmentation, scarring from previous surgeries and for women with a strong positive family history of breast cancer.
