WHY:

Gamma Medica recently announced growth across the U.S., with
global expansion set for 2017 to bring its LumaGEM (MBI) system to
more leading health care facilities, giving women critical access
to accurate secondary breast cancer screenings options. This
growth coincides with the company’s educational Be
Certain campaign
, aiming to eliminate myths and raise
awareness about the facts on breast cancer detection and breast
health. Detecting breast cancer in dense breast tissue (affecting
50 percent of U.S. women) can be like looking for a snowflake in a
snowstorm, as dense tissue and cancerous growths both show white
on mammograms, as well as yield high
false positives
via other common screening methods. Molecular
imaging technology is
changing
that, so every woman – no matter her breast density –
can get a fair and accurate diagnosis. Secondary screenings are an
important part of early breast cancer detection. MBI was
specifically designed to detect cancer in dense breast tissue.

 

About Gamma Medica, Inc.
Gamma Medica, Inc. is a women’s
health company focused on overcoming the limitations of anatomical
imaging experienced by mammography and other screening modalities in the
early detection of breast cancer, with women who have dense breast
tissue. The company’s LumaGEM® MBI system is the first commercially
available, FDA-cleared, fully solid-state digital imaging system
utilizing dual-head Digital Direct Conversion Gamma Imaging™ (DDCGI™)
technology for molecular breast imaging. With over 90 percent
sensitivity and specificity, LumaGEM MBI has been shown to significantly
improve cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue with fewer
false positives relative to anatomical imaging technologies, such as MRI
and whole breast ultrasound. For more information, visit, www.gammamedica.com
