Solis Women's Health Brings Molecular Breast Imaging to Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
Date:7/1/2008

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Solis Women's Health, with eight centers across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex devoted entirely to mammography and breast imaging, announced today that it is adding molecular imaging to the diagnostic tools it has available in its DFW locations. This exciting technology is performed with the Dilon 6800, a high-resolution, small field-of-view gamma camera, optimized to perform Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI). It is initially being implemented at Solis' Central Plano location, with further implementations planned at Solis locations throughout the Metroplex.

BSGI is a molecular breast imaging technique that can see 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 pharmaceutical tracing agent that is absorbed by all the cells in the body. Due to their increased rate of metabolic activity, cancerous cells in the breast absorb a greater amount of the tracing agent than normal, healthy cells and generally appear as "hot spots" on the BSGI image.

Solis has been using the Dilon 6800 in its Solis-Bertrand Breast Center in Greensboro, N.C., for over a year. Molecular imaging will be used as a part of Solis' advanced imaging program for breast diagnosis, which also includes the use of breast MRI, when appropriate.

"BSGI has proven to be an important adjunct to mammography and ultrasound in the diagnosis of breast cancer at the Solis-Bertrand Center, and we are excited to be the first in the Metroplex to offer this important advance in care," said Brad Hummel, CEO of Solis.

"At Solis our commitment is to the women of our communities, and this commitment extends to selecting technologies that demonstrate diagnostic value in our mission to diagnose cancers when they are small and at their most treatable. We studied
