Portable Nuclear Imaging System Expands Utility, Performance

 

April 27, 2010

April 27, 2010 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) this week cleared a large field-of-view, general-purpose portable nuclear imaging system.

The camera, ergo, makes it possible to image without boundaries for a diverse range of locations, including the nuclear department, intensive care unit, cardiac care unit, operating rooms, emergency departments, pediatrics, trauma units, patient floors and ambulatory services.

The ergo has a large 12.25-inch by 15.5-inch field-of-view. The system delivers an intrinsic spatial resolution of 3.25 mm, energy resolution of 7.9 percent and count rate capabilities of 5 Mcps. Its design features three compound detector motions and a portable base for positional flexibility.

Digirad plans to ship its first production systems beginning in June.
