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

eport that BSGI may have equal sensitivity and improved specificity when compared with breast MRI. The panel also concluded that BSGI and positron emission mammography (PEM) may be used as alternatives to breast MRI when MRI is not available or is contraindicated in certain patients. The panel also agreed that in some situations, BSGI may be useful as an additional problem-solving tool.

The report was published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons in June 2009. The panel of physicians met to reassess debated issues, available evidence and implications of ongoing investigations, as well as to develop recommendations for diagnosis and treatment of image-detected breast cancers. The panel was comprised of physician specialists in the areas of diagnosing and treating breast disease.

Dilon Diagnostics®, makers of the Dilon 6800® Gamma Camera optimized for BSGI, welcomes the growing acceptance and adoption of the technology for breast cancer imaging as a standard of care.

"The recognition of BSGI by two major medical societies is a great step toward achieving our goal of BSGI being considered a critical part of the standard of care," said Doug Kieper, vice president of Science and Technology, Dilon Diagnostics.
