CEC Will Service, Distribute CardiArc SPECT Systems

February 2, 2009 - CardiArc, Inc., along with Clinical Engineering Consultants Inc. (CEC) of Erlanger, KY, today said CEC will provide field service for the CardiArc HD-SPECT system.

CEC also brings technical consultation with CardiArc on the field service manual. In addition CEC will sell the CardiArc system in the Ohio River Valley area.

SPECT is a standard noninvasive diagnostic imaging that creates three-dimensional images of blood flow and function of the heart. The design of the CardiArc camera allows clinics and hospitals to scan patients more efficiently than conventional SPECT equipment, yet produces very sharp images, the company said.

The CardiArc HD-SPECT device has been specifically optimized for use in outpatient settings and emergency rooms. It can pass through a standard 36-inch wide doorway, can be used in a 6- by 7-foot exam room, requires no room modifications for installation or operation and uses standard U.S. or European voltage. Power consumption is typically less than 100 watts.
