Medical 1

Compact scintimammography gamma camera for early detection of breast cancer

Medical 2

Jefferson Lab's mini scintimammography gamma camera attached to a Fisher Imaging stereotactic biopsy system at Oyster Point Surgical Associates in Newport News, Virginia. The system is being used in a clinical study to improve the early detection of breast cancer.

Compact Scintimammography Gamma Camera

Jefferson Lab's researchers developed and patented a Compact Scintimammography Gamma Camera to improve the early detection of breast cancer. For more information, see:

Detector developed and patented at the DOE's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility through the technology transfer mechanism and co-sponsored by the DOE Division of Nuclear Physics
