SALEM, N.H. & PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Gamma Medica, a leader in molecular breast imaging (MBI) technology, today announced that Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia has committed to purchase Pennsylvania’s first clinical LumaGEM®Molecular Breast Imaging system. MBI is a secondary screening and diagnostic tool that is particularly useful for women who have dense breast tissue and women with a high risk of being diagnosed with cancer. It is a proven, effective supplementary screening method to standard mammography and/or tomosynthesis (3D mammography), significantly increasing early detection in women who are at a higher risk due to dense breast tissue.
2016 clinical evidence confirms that adding LumaGEM®Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) to mammography as a secondary screening method is more than twice as effective as mammogram and ultrasound in detecting cancer for women with dense breast tissue

Authors of American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) study used the LumaGEM® MBI System on 1,696 women to detect 13 cancers missed by routine mammograms, reporting MBI yielded a high detection rate and low biopsy rate .
SALEM, NH – Aug. 1, 2016 – A breakthrough retrospective study in AJR’s August issue confirmed Gamma Medica’s molecular breast imaging (MBI) technology’s high incremental cancer detection rate of 7.7 cancers per thousand (7.7/1000) and overall clinical effectiveness as a secondary screening tool in finding 13 malignancies among 1,696 women with dense breast tissue following mammograms that read negative for cancer.Approximately 85 percent of these cancers were confirmed to be node negative (with 7.6 percent being confirmed node positive, and 7.6 percent being unknown), indicating they were detected at an early stage and therefore presented a better prognosis.

SALEM, NH – May 5, 2016 – Gamma Medica, a leader in molecular breast imaging technology (MBI), announced today it has launched the Be Certain campaign, featuring a dedicated microsite as the cornerstone of an initiative to spread awareness on breast density. Today, about half of all women in the United States have dense breast tissue, making them four to five times more likely to develop breast cancer. Traditional screening technology alone is not advanced enough to accurately detect cancerous tumors for these women who have a higher intrinsic risk of developing cancer during the course of their lifetime.
