Technology captured in real-time.
Dilon Diagnostics (Newport News, VA) showcased the Dilon 6800 Gamma Camera, which performs breast-specific gamma imaging (BSGI), also known as molecular breast imaging (MBI), and provides detection of small lesions. This diagnostic adjunct to mammography and ultrasound can be used for breast and other nuclear medicine imaging procedures. The company also highlighted GammaLoc, its FDA-cleared gamma-guided localization system for needle biopsy. This system enables BSGI-guided stereotactic needle biopsy procedures to be performed on the Dilon Gamma Camera.
FUJIFILM Medical Systems U.S.A. (Stamford, CT) showcased workflow improvements to Synapse 3D, a suite of clinical applications integrated directly with Synapse PACS and Synapse Cardiovascular solutions. Clinicians can access advanced diagnostic tools without having to use the same workstation. The platform is vendor-neutral, multimodality capable, and can be used with PET, CT, MR, and nuclear medicine systems. Its diagnostic clinical tools include multidimensional and dynamic data viewing, image fusion, and Sector MPR.
Hologic Inc. (Bedford, MA) announced it has received an approvable letter from the FDA for the Selenia Dimensions 3-dimensional digital mammography tomosynthesis system. The system is designed to eliminate distortion caused by tissue shadowing or density. Hologic also announced it has signed an exclusive US partnership agreement with SuperSonic Imagine. Hologic will sell, install, and service the Aixplorer Multiwave breast ultrasound technology, which enables B-mode image quality and supports ShearWave Elastography, a tool designed to provide a real-time, color-coded map of local tissue elasticity.
Konica Minolta (Wayne, NJ) unveiled Aeor DR, a new wireless digital radiography (DR) system designed for easy-to-use, high-quality imaging. The flat panel detector has a cesium iodide scintillator with a detector quantum efficiency level for high-quality images acquired with reduced x-ray dose exposure. The panel weighs 6.3 lbs and has a battery for extended life and short charge cycles. The detector is designed to fit existing wall stands and Bucky trays.
