Further Testing With Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) Uncovers Additional Cancer in Breast Cancer Patients, Changes Surgical Management
Date:4/27/2009

ents who have dense breasts, scar tissue, implants, or palpable lesions that cannot be detected using mammography or ultrasound.

Boolbol and her team conducted an IRB-approved review of all patients who underwent BSGI at Beth Israel Medical Center from 2005 to 2008. A total of 82 patients underwent BSGI for newly diagnosed breast cancer. There were five cases of invasive ductal carcinoma, two DCIS, one LCIS, two papillomas, and eight benign biopsies. One patient proceeded directly to mastectomy and an area of DCIS was found, which corresponded to the BSGI.

Conclusions

In the study group, 22 percent of patients had a change in surgical management based on BSGI findings. BSGI detected additional cancer in 9 percent of patients.

"We know that mammography will not detect all breast cancers. This study proves that BSGI is an additional tool to detect breast cancers otherwise missed by standard imaging. Therefore, BSGI plays an important role in the clinical management of patients with known breast cancer," said Dr. Boolbol.
