Society of Nuclear Medicine Releases New Guidelines for Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging
Date:6/22/2010

mize our practice of medicine, it is necessary to establish when and how to use a particular procedure. Our goal was to communicate concise guidelines to our nuclear medicine colleagues as well as to the medical community at large."

According to several recent studies, BSGI has comparable sensitivity, but superior specificity when compared to MRI. Therefore, like MRI, BSGI can detect cancers missed by the mammogram, but it leads to fewer biopsies of benign lesions. In addition, BSGI with the Dilon 6800® demonstrates a high sensitivity for identifying early stage cancers as small as 1 mm and has also been shown to improve the surgical planning in patients with cancer and in detecting cancer in high-risk patients.  

In addition to being available in the United States, Dilon's molecular imaging technology is also available in Europe, Mexico, select countries of the Middle East, parts of the Asian-Pacific basin, and the Caribbean.
