Multi-Media Productions (USA), Inc. today announced that Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI), a breakthrough breast cancer imaging procedure, will be featured on 21st Century Health, beginning June 17. BSGI offers women peace of mind after a suspicious mammogram by helping to pinpoint difficult to detect cancerous lesions.

BSGI is a molecular breast imaging procedure that images the metabolic activity of breast lesions through radiotracer uptake. The technique allows lesions to be seen independently of tissue density and discover very early stage cancers. Dilon Technologies is the leader in molecular breast imaging, and its cornerstone product, the Dilon 6800, is a high-resolution, compact gamma camera optimized to perform Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI).

Dr. Kristen Brill, Breast Surgeon at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, PA., describes BSGI as, “an aide in determining the extent of the disease and helpful in detecting additional sites of cancer within the breast.”
