Dilon’s Two New Collimators Enhance Gamma Camera Imaging Capabilities

February 4, 2009 - Dilon Technologies released of two new collimators: the Slant15 Collimator for breast imaging and the Low Energy High-Resolution (LEHR) Collimator, which are attachment options for the Dilon 6800 Gamma Camera that help to optimize imaging for the respective applications.

The Slant15 Collimator is a 15-degree slant parallel-hole collimator that reportedly minimizes the dead space along the edge of the detector, allowing better visualization of the chest wall in breast imaging. Uses include: breast imaging; sentinel node imaging; thyroid imaging; and parathyroid imaging.

LEHR collimator is a high-resolution collimator for general nuclear medicine applications. Uses include thyroid imaging, parathyroid imaging, sentinel node imaging, spot bone imaging, gall bladder ejection and pediatric imaging studies.

The release of these new collimators is part of Dilon expansion of breast imaging and general nuclear applications for the Dilon 6800 Gamma.
