Dilon Technologies, of Newport News, Va., has released a Dilon 6800 software update that offers enhancements for breast and general nuclear medicine applications image processing.

The software now includes functionalities that complement the Slant15 Collimator for breast imaging and Low Energy High-Resolution Collimator for general nuclear medicine applications, both made available earlier this year.

According to the company, the software package has processing protocols for pediatric lung and renal, as well as gallbladder imaging and ejection studies. Dilon says the new features provide the gamma camera with a broader range for imaging, beyond breast, thyroid, sentinel node and spot bone imaging.

Furthermore, an onscreen measurement toolkit and quantification toolkit helps to determine lesion size and location in breast imaging. Also, the software enables simultaneous processing and acquisition.
