November 18, 2008 - Dilon Technologies Inc. said today that they have formed an alliance with Terason Ultrasound to offer an expanded imaging capability when molecular breast imaging and ultrasound may be required.
BSGI is a molecular breast imaging technique that can see lesions independent of tissue density and discover very early stage cancers, particularly for women with high risk factors or that present with questionable mammograms. With BSGI, metabolic activity is assessed and cancerous cells generally display as "hot spots."
Terason is a leader in integrating patented microsystem technology with an Apple MacBook Pro PC. The Terason t3000 Ultrasound System reportedly offers quality imaging performance with the portability and functionality of a laptop.
When used as a complement to the Dilon 6800 Gamma Camera, physicians are able to move from BSGI to ultrasound without leaving the exam room.
The Terason t3000 reportedly offers best-in-class image quality; ease of use with a dual user interface; and an integrated information management and communications protocol in one system. For quick on-the-spot, accurate scanning in a wide array of clinical applications, transducers quickly connect to the system allowing technicians to perform an ultrasound exam at the point of patient care. Terason's patented high-density, beam-forming architecture provides a superior performance cost-effective ultrasound solution.
The ultrasound system is built upon an industry respected combination of the Apple PC coupled with Windows Operating System to provide seamless networking capabilities, compatibility with various applications, standard connections, and software updates. The system includes DICOM, wireless, integrated CD/DVD and USB capability.
