A continuum of information for women's breast health to help clinicians...

Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) is a type of functional imaging i.e., the pictures it creates show differences in the activity of breast tissue.  Breast tissue that contains cells that are rapidly growing and dividing, such as cancer cells, appears brighter than less active tissue.

Dr. Deborah Rhodes, M.D., a member of the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, stated, "MBI substantially increases detection rates of invasive cancers in dense breasts without an unacceptable high increasse in false positive findings has important implications for breast cancer screening decisions. MBI has a more favorable balance of additional invasive cancers detected versus additional biopsies incurred relative to other supplemental screening options."

The pictures generated during MBI is the result of an injection of a small amount of radioactive tracer.  The tracer attaches to the cancer cells which are detected by the gamma camera of the MBI system.



Secondary Screening for Early Detectionthe - The LumaGEM ® Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) system has advanced photonics and image processing that provide images with a resolution as small as 1.6 mm. The high sensitivity and specificity of our products provide highly accurate imaging information that enable physicians to detect and treat breast cancer.

SOLO II™ Breast PET Scanner

PET, short for Positron Emission Tomography, scans are not used to screen women for breast cancer. Rather to detect small tumors. PET scans can be useful for evaluating people after breast cancer has already been diagnosed, (

The Solo II™ produces high-resolution images, with far more detail than conventional breast imaging. By producing tomographic images of lesions with resolution down to 1.6 mm (approximately the size of a grain of rice), this technology provides valuable clinical data on invasive and non-invasive disease across the continuum of care.
