Figure 2

MBI study performed with injection of 290 MBq Tc-99 m sestamibi and a dual-head DC-MBI system. In this 63-year-old woman, a 0.8-cm ductal carcinoma in situ appears as a moderate intensity mass (arrow) and was detected at all three acquisition types: (A) 10 min-per-view, (B) 5 min-per-view, and (C) 5 min-per-view with WBR. Image count density of 1,020 counts/cm2 in the 10-min-per-view acquisition was considered low. Both readers assigned a test positive assessment of 4 (suspicious) for all three acquisition types.
