cancer thumb New technology aids cancer detectionA new cutting-edge technology that detects and diagnoses breast cancer has become available in the US.

Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) can detect lesions that are so small, they don’t show up on a traditional mammogram, providing early detection and treatment.

BSGI requires the patient to be injected with a low-dose radioactive tracer. That tracer is absorbed into cancerous cells, which then light up on the image.

A mammogram detects about 85 percent of breast cancers in women, and doctors say BSGI could be more reliable in uncovering cancers that we wouldn’t see any other way.

The technology is also useful both for newly diagnosed patients and high-risk women who carry the breast-cancer gene BRCA.
