"One of the important reasons I am a breast cancer survivor is because Gamma Medica’s LumaGEM detected breast cancer after my mammogram read negative – my accurate diagnosis empowered me to take action immediately. If you have dense breast tissue, MBI could save your life like it did for mine."

"I wish that everyone had access to this tool. I felt no discomfort and the entire process went incredibly smoothly. It was a blessing to have the peace of mind of knowing the results immediately after the screening."

"Molecular breast imaging offers women with dense breast tissue a much better chance at detecting breast cancer when treatment is easier and more successful. It has really changed the dynamics in our center. It is well tolerated by patients, quick to interpret and allows us to go over the results in real time with patients (acting on any findings on the same visit). The published data and our clinical experience has been exceptional. Our referring physicians and dense patients have a lot more peace of mind."
