Dilon Technologies' Slant15(TM) and LEHR Collimators Enhance Imaging Capabilities
Date:2/3/2009

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dilon Technologies, Inc., a leader in molecular breast imaging, today announced the release of two new collimators: the Slant15 Collimator for breast imaging and the Low Energy High-Resolution (LEHR) Collimator. Both collimators are attachment options for the Dilon 6800 Gamma Camera that help to optimize imaging for the respective applications.

The Slant15 Collimator is a 15-degree slant parallel-hole collimator that minimizes the dead space along the edge of the detector, allowing better visualization of the chest wall in breast imaging. Uses include: breast imaging; sentinel node imaging; thyroid imaging; and parathyroid imaging.

LEHR collimator is a high-resolution collimator for general nuclear medicine applications. Uses include thyroid imaging, parathyroid imaging, sentinel node imaging, spot bone imaging, gall bladder ejection, and pediatric imaging studies.

"With the release of these new collimators, we are expanding breast imaging and general nuclear applications for the Dilon 6800 Gamma," said Bob Moussa, President and CEO of Dilon Technologies. "This is another step in providing a broader service offering to clinicians."
