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 and indium-111 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.

The company's focus is on the development of compact gamma cameras for imaging radionuclides distributed in the body. The technical approach uses solid-state detectors and miniaturized readout circuits for creating potentially new diagnostic tools and treatment capabilities.
