Florida Women’s Center Acquires Dedicated Breast MRI

June 2, 2008 – Aurora Imaging Technology Inc. said today the Aurora 1.5Tesla Dedicated Breast MRI System is immediately available for the first time to Floridians at the Bay Radiology Women’s Imaging Center in Panama City.

The Aurora System is reportedly the only FDA cleared breast MRI system specifically designed for the detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast disease.

According to the Florida Annual Cancer Report, the percentage of advanced stage breast cancer has steadily decreased since 1981 in Florida, and early cancer detection through breast cancer screening and physical examination has contributed to this decline. However, breast cancer accounts for almost 30 percent of all cancer diagnoses in Florida women and is the second leading cause of female cancer mortality in the state.
