NEWPORT NEWS, Va., April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DILON Diagnostics and GE Healthcare are pleased to announce that they will present GE Healthcare's FDA 510k pending dual head MBI localization accessory for breast biopsy at the SBI/ACR Breast Imaging Symposium. The Annual meeting will be held in Austin, Texas, and the exhibit hall will be open from April 7 to 9. The MBI localization accessory will be presented at the Dilon booth number 209. This important milestone in the breast imaging segment comes shortly after Dilon and GE signed an agreement for DILON to distribute GE's Discovery NM750b Molecular Breast Imaging system in select geographies across the globe.
The Discovery NM750b breast imaging system, designed to measure and image the distribution of selected single photon emission radioisotopes in the human body to aid in the evaluation of lesions, offers clinicians an important tool for imaging of a broad range of patients, including those with dense breast. The MBI localization accessory is a complementary technology to the Discovery NM750b breast imaging system which is designed to accurately locate, in three dimensions, lesions in the breast using information derived from stereotactic pairs of two-dimensional images. It is intended to provide guidance for interventional purposes such as biopsy and pre-surgical.
The power of functional imaging to see and localize early changes is a key factor in early detection of breast cancer.
*510k pending at FDA. Not for sale in the United States. Not CE Marked. Not cleared, approved or authorized by any national regulatory authorities for commercial availability.
