Esteemed Endorsements Recognize Promising Future of Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI)
Date:11/19/2009

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging/Molecular Breast Imaging (BSGI/MBI) has been recognized and endorsed by two highly esteemed organizations for the fight against breast cancer: The Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and the American College of Surgeons. Both societies published articles supporting the further application of this breakthrough imaging technology for the early detection of breast cancer.

"These endorsements reinforce what I have found to be true in my own center: BSGI performs better than MRI in many patient cases," Christine B. Teal, M.D., F.A.C.S. Director, Breast Care Center, The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates. "BSGI is more sensitive and specific, and it costs less than MRI. We are a big supporter of BSGI in our breast center and use it routinely for the surgical planning for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, as well as for screening of high risk patients."

In the Fall 2009 issue of the SBI News, the article, "Nuclear Medicine Breast Imaging: An Exciting Frontier," discusses the advancements in nuclear medicine imaging of the breast. According to the article, "nuclear medicine is an exciting field of development for breast imaging and will almost certainly lead to improved detection of breast cancer in the future."

The article goes on to present the numerous benefits of BSGI, including: high sensitivity; specificity slightly better than MRI; more specific than mammography in screening patients with dense breasts; relatively straightforward to implement; well received by patients; quick to interpret; helpful alternative for patients who are unable to undergo MRI due to metallic implants, renal failure, claustrophobia or for whom MRI is not available; and the cost of molecular breast imaging is usually less than MRI.

The Consensus Conference III panel, formed by the American College of Surgeons, concluded in a special r
