Mayo Clinic licenses breast imaging technology to Gamma Medica-Ideas

By Kelley Luckstein

Mayo Clinic has licensed a technology to Gamma Medica-Ideas Inc. designed to boost the imaging power of its diagnostic device, especially for women with dense breasts. Invented by a team of Mayo doctors and scientists led by Michael O’Connor, the technology, which includes advanced imaging processing software, can help doctors better diagnose breast cancer with smaller amounts of radiation.

 

“We believe that the combination of GMI’s detector technology and the algorithms and techniques developed at Mayo, will enable us to achieve a significant reduction in the radiation dose required for molecular breast imaging, and increase the diagnostic utility of this technique,” O’Connor said in a statement.
