National Institute of Cancer Is the First Center in Mexico to Offer Positron Emission Mammography
Date:10/19/2011

SAN DIEGO, Oct. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Institute of Cancer (INCan), one of the best-equipped oncologic centers in Latin America, is the first to offer Positron Emission Mammography (PEM) to the residents of Mexico. PEM is the breast application of the Naviscan high-resolution PET scanner that shows the location as well as the metabolic phase of a lesion.  It is the only FDA-cleared 3D Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) device on the market.

The Naviscan PEM scanner is compact, mobile and easy-to-use for precisely characterizing breast cancer, enhancing surgical planning, monitoring patient response to chemotherapy and evaluating suspected recurrence.  It is designed to show the metabolic phase of a lesion allowing for early breast cancer diagnosis and assisting physicians in making optimal care decisions by providing an ability to distinguish between benign and malignant lesions - what researchers term "specificity."

"With the arrival of PEM to the National Institute of Cancer in Mexico, we are offering our patients a diagnostic tool that will allow us to more accurately localize lesions as well as characterize them at a much earlier stage, with which we expect to reduce the harm that cancer causes our population," said Dr. Enrique Estrada-Lobato, Chairman of the Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Department of the National Institute of Cancer in Mexico.

"INCan's adoption of PEM is an outstanding validation of our technology and the center's dedication to providing patients with the best breast cancer care available.  Naviscan is proud to partner with this center to provide the latest technological advances in breast cancer care to the women of Mexico," said Paul J. Mirabella, Chairman and CEO, Naviscan, Inc.
