Nuclear Associates of Carle Place, NY, has developed a prone breast

cushion to be used during scintimammography exams. The cushion

enables nuclear medicine physicians to separate the breasts from

other structures, such as the chest wall, and eliminates the need

for a dedicated imaging table, according to the company. The cushion

can be used with any gamma camera and comes with a free guide

to scintimammography.
