"Breast Specific Gamma Imaging is very important now in my decision of whether or not to biopsy when the mammogram, ultrasound, and physical exam are inconclusive. Patients really benefit from having fewer short interval follow-ups and fewer unnecessary biopsies," said Dr. Bertrand. "And, with the added benefit of lower cost and higher patient compliance of BSGI as compared to breast MRI, it may be used to improve detection while lowering healthcare costs."
According to Gerald Kolb, Chief Knowledge Officer of Solis Women's Health, "We are very proud of Dr. Bertrand and her work establishing the viability of BSGI in a clinical breast center setting. Solis is dedicated to improving the quality of care for our patients, and BSGI appears to be raising the bar for care in a manner that is also cost effective."
