Dilon Adds Features for Lung, Renal, Gallbladder to MI Solution

June 16, 2009 – Dilon Technologies Inc. today announced the release of a new Dilon 6800 Software update, including enhancements for both breast and general nuclear medicine applications image processing.

The new software functionalities complement the Slant15 Collimator for breast imaging and the low energy high-resolution (LEHR) Collimator for general nuclear medicine applications, both released earlier this year as purchase options for the Dilon 6800 gamma camera.

Processing protocols for pediatric lung and renal, as well as gallbladder imaging and ejection studies are now standard in the Dilon 6800 software package. Detailed images for these protocols can be acquired utilizing Dilon’s new high resolution collimator. These additional features help broaden the versatility of the Dilon 6800 gamma camera beyond breast, thyroid, sentinel node and spot bone imaging to provide additional high-resolution, organ-specific studies to maximize clinical utility and economic benefit.

This compact and mobile system provides the flexibility to image at patient bedside or to move the unit between multiple facilities. Other enhancements include an onscreen measurement toolkit and quantification toolkit useful for various applications, but especially to help determine lesion size and location in breast imaging. In addition, the new software allows for simultaneous processing and acquisition.

The Dilon 6800 has traditionally served as a diagnostic adjunct to mammography to provide breast-specific gamma imaging, BSGI. However, with the addition of the Slant15 and LEHR collimators and expanded software functionalities, facilities are now able to utilize the camera for other general nuclear medicine applications and can maximize clinical patient throughput by using the standard gamma cameras for whole body and SPECT studies- thus offloading studies of smaller body parts to the Dilon 6800.
