Hybridyne's compact gamma cameras provide a new fully digital probe to localize the uptake of radionuclides
in the body. The gamma cameras use nuclear medical
diagnostic techniques to better visualize abnormal tissues in anatomical regions of interest. They rely on the imaging of radio-pharmaceutical
agents, which are designed to have higher affinity for attachment to abnormal tissue, such as cancer cells, compared to normal tissue. These radio-pharmaceuticals contain one or more gamma-emitting isotopes (e.g., Technetium-99m
isotopes). By imaging the emitted gamma rays, users can obtain the location of the abnormal tissue within the region of interest in an accurate, rapid, and less invasive manner.
