American Journal of Roentgeneology (AJR) retrospective study confirmed Gamma Medica's Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) technology had high incremental cancer detection rate of 7.7 cancers per thousand (7.7/1000) and overall clinical effectiveness as a secondary screening tool in finding 13 malignancies among 1,696 women with dense breast tissue following mammograms that read negative for cancer.

Mayo Clinic study determined that the addition of Molecular Breast Imaging (MBI) for women with dense breast tissue resulted in a lower cost per cancer detected than screening with mammography alone. The study found MBI technologies led to more accurate diagnosis rates, and in combination with mammography resulted in a cost savings of approximately 15 percent.
