Women's Digital Imaging of Ridgewood First Private Medical Practice in New York Area to Screen With Breast Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI)
Date:5/14/2009

p>

WDI uses the Dilon 6800 Imaging Camera from Dilon Technologies, Inc, a high-resolution camera that creates clear pictures of cancers as small as 3 millimeters. It can detect early stage cancers, see lesions in dense breast tissue and provide multiple angle views. It can also give us images of the axilla (armpit) to help identify abnormal lymph nodes.

BSGI and MRI have similar sensitivity, the ability to detect disease, but BSGI has better specificity, determining that disease is not present. Studies comparing both modalities have consistently found that BSGI and MRI have 90 percent sensitivity. However, BSGI was able to reduce the number of inconclusive findings by 50 percent, according to a study presented at this year's Annual Interdisciplinary Breast Center conference in Las Vegas. Proving that suspicious areas are not cancerous eliminates the need for biopsies which can be uncomfortable and expensive.

BSGI is more effective than MRI in detecting invasive lobular carcinoma, a type of breast cancer found in 15-20 percent of all breast cancer cases that begins in the milk-producing glands, or lobules, and then can spread to surrounding tissues. A study comparing Breast Specific Gamma Imaging, MRI, Mammography and Sonography published in the February issue of the Journal of Roentgenology, documented sensitivities of 93 percent, 83 percent, 79 percent and 68 percent respectively.
