Based on its recent analysis of the breast imaging systems market,
"While other adjunct technologies such as ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging are available, either their inability to locate microcalcifications or their low specificity can throw up inconclusive results," said
The LumaGEM MBI system has the highest negative predictive value (NPV) among adjunct technologies used for breast cancer diagnosis, making it one of the most reliable systems for this purpose. It also has a high intrinsic spatial resolution of 1.6 millimeters and provides high-quality images that enable clinicians to locate tumors, measure them, and understand their functional and metabolic activities.
While there are shortcomings with every adjunct technology that is used for breast cancer diagnosis, the LumaGEM MBI system, with a high sensitivity of 91 percent and a high specificity of 93 percent, offers customers unprecedented precision. The LumaGEM MBI system utilizes a dual-head technology that effectively locates cancers in cases that previously were either inconclusive or determined to be negative on mammography images.
As the imaging is done on the mediolateral oblique and the cranio-caudal planes, it is easily comparable to mammography images. The scanning procedure in the LumaGEM MBI system uses minimal compression and is performed with the subject in a seated position.
"The LumaGEM MBI system has a small-sized gamma camera that is located closer to the breasts," noted
