February 3, 2009 - Dilon Technologies Inc. today released two new collimators: the Slant15 Collimator for breast imaging and the Low Energy High-Resolution (LEHR) Collimator.
Both collimators 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 minimizes the dead space along the edge of the detector, reportedly 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.
