Emory University Hospital to Evaluate CardiArc SPECT System

August 28, 2007 – CardiArc Inc. announced that researchers at Emory University Hospital will perform evaluations in clinical settings of the design and performance of the company’s CardiArc SPECT system, the second healthcare facility to research and provide clinical evaluations of the heart imaging system after an agreement with Cleveland Clinic was announced in June.

The testing and research is expected to yield valuable data in gaining additional knowledge of heart disease and to optimize the imaging system’s performance.

Emory’s evaluation will consist of a large number of scans performed on individuals using both the CardiArc SPECT system and again on a conventional SPECT machine currently in use at Emory University Hospital. All patient identification information will be removed.

“The CardiArc system has potential to shorten the time and improve the comfort of SPECT scans for the patient,” observed James R. Galt, Ph.D., principal investigator and director of nuclear medicine physics, “and I am particularly intrigued by the scanner’s simplicity and the design’s focus on resolution, which should result in improved image quality and more accurate diagnoses.”
