MBI Guided Breast Biopsy
The GammaLôc® MBI Localization System, an accessory to the Dilon Molecular Imaging System, enables MBI-guided breast biopsy procedures of suspicious lesions. The MBI Localization System is compatible with all major Biopsy Systems:
- VACORA® from C.R. Bard, Inc. (VC10140MRS)
- ENCOR® from C.R. Bard, Inc. (ECMRINTLOC)
- ATEC® from Hologic, Inc. (ILS0914-20)
- Mammotome® from Devicor Medical Products, Inc. (ADT08S)
The MBI Localization System
- Allows physicians to calculate lesion location and depth
- Guides the user through the procedure with detailed instructions
- Provides 180 degree easy, open access for MBI-guided biopsies
The MBI Localization Procedure The MBI Localization System utilizes the CorreLocator™ paddle and the StereoView™ collimator system. The StereoView™ collimator is used to take 20 degree angle stereo views from both the right and left side, similar to the technique that is used in stereotactic X-ray localization (see illustration below). Location and depth of the lesion are clearly identified at the point where the angles intersect. The CorreLocator™ paddle provides optimal breast stabilization with consistent results.
Disposables for MBI Localization (Order Form)
The Source sleeve, a SINGLE-USE sterile disposable, is used in conjunction with the Source Holder to verify the location of the lesion prior to its excision. The Source Holder is a multi-use disposable included in the MBI Localization system. Order the correct Source Sleeve that is compatible with your breast biopsy device.
The Equipment Drape, a SINGLE-USE sterile disposable, is used to protect the patient and the equipment. The Drape is compatible will all Dilon Molecular Imaging Systems.

Information: Cerium 139 Isotope (Ce-139)
The Ce-139 is used to localize a biopsy needle in relation to areas of uptake of Tc-99m during the MBI guided biopsy procedure. Ce-139 is embedded in the Source Holder and Fiducial Marker that are included in the MBI localization system. For licensing and other important information, download Ce-139 document (PDF)
