CARLSBAD, CA (PRWEB) October 06, 2017
CMR Naviscan Corporation announces that it has acquired certain Gamma Medica (GM) assets and intellectual property. The GM Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) technology, including the LumaGEM® MBI scanner complements the existing CMR Naviscan organ-specific positron emission tomography (PET) product portfolio, including its Solo II® Breast PET Imaging (BPI) system, positioning CMR Naviscan as a comprehensive solutions provider to the diagnosis and care of breast cancer patients.
“With the addition of this Molecular Breast Imaging technology, we are now able to offer healthcare providers a more comprehensive portfolio of screening and problem solving tools for the care of breast cancer patients, including secondary screening of dense breasts, image-guided biopsy, surgical planning, and treatment monitoring,” said Tonatiuh Monroy, CMR Naviscan’s President.
The value of MBI in the patient care continuum is detailed in the recently published article, Molecular Breast Imaging in Breast Cancer Screening and Problem Solving, (RadioGraphics 2017:37:1309-1327; https://doi.org/10.1148/rg.2017160204). Furthermore, with guidance on MBI as appropriate radiologic care, American College of Radiology (ACR) Practice Parameter, published in July, (https://www.acr.org/~/media/ACR/Documents/PGTS/guidelines/MBI.pdf?db=web), the role of the technology is becoming a standard of care. By adding MBI to its suite of solutions, CMR Naviscan continues on its path as a leader in molecular imaging and problem solving.
Please visit CMR Naviscan at the 2017 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), November 26 – 30, to learn more of the tools and solutions now available. We will be located as part of the Compañia Mexicana de Radiologia (CMR) exhibit, located at Booth #2941, McCormick Place, Chicago.
