ProxiScan™, a compact gamma camera for imaging of radionuclides distributed in the body developed by Hybridyne Imaging Technologies, Inc. and Brookhaven National Laboratory, can localize the uptake of radiation in tissue in detail assisting with diagnosis at an early stage and with radiopharmaceutical-guided surgery. Based on cadmium zinc telluride detectors, ProxiScan™ delivers high-resolution images for detecting small areas of interest.

ProxiScan™ is intended for the use of imaging the distribution of radionuclides in the human body using planar imaging techniques. It may also be used for intraoperative investigations, on pathological specimens, and for endocavity applications if a protective sheath is used.
