Breast Imaging Specialists Joins the Health Gorilla™, Inc. Online Marketplace

Leading Provider of Tomosynthesis Joins Marketplace

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2014) - Health Gorilla, Inc., the first online healthcare marketplace to connect doctors and clinicians with over 9,000+ diagnostic labs and 35,000+ radiology centers, and Breast Imaging Specialists ( have announced a new multi-year agreement which extends Breast Imaging Specialists diagnostic imaging services through the Health Gorilla Marketplace. Breast Imaging Specialists is one of the leading providers of tomosynthesis (3D mammography) services in the western United States.

"Breast Imaging Specialists brings very advanced diagnostic technology and services to our marketplace," said Steven Yaskin, Chief Executive Officer. "3D mammography has the real potential to save lives. Our marketplace enables customers such as Breast Imaging Specialists to process diagnostic imaging orders electronically and then deliver results rapidly and securely to doctors."

Headquartered in Los Gatos, California, Breast Imaging Specialists has led the way in bringing advanced technology and better diagnostic techniques to women's health. Tomosynthesis or 3D mammography is a relatively new breast imaging modality which will likely replace traditional (digital) mammography due to its increased detection rates and superior performance when compared to regular 2D mammography. The June 2014 Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) summarized the increased detection rates seen in multicenter center study which involved Harvard (The Massachusetts General Hospital) and the University of Pennsylvania. The study showed a remarkable increase in invasive cancer detection of 41% using tomosynthesis. The detection rate increase for Breast Imaging Specialists in the same category is 100% (59% increase over the other large scale institutions in the JAMA study which is being presented at the international meeting of radiologists, The Radiological Society of North America in November, 2014).

"It is our mission to bring the very best technology and expertise to our patients. Better diagnosis has the potential to save more lives," said Dr. Dipa Patel, Chief Medical Officer at Breast Imaging Specialists. "The Health Gorilla Marketplace has enabled us to more easily and accurately extend our services to any doctor and to more rapidly support our mutual patients. We've set the stage to enable patient access to their data through the Health Gorilla Marketplace. It is a big win for us."
