It has an expanded field-of-view processing capability and new automated workflow features for a quick, comfortable exam. MyoSPECT provides a remarkable picture of cardiac architecture and pathology to aid doctors in choosing the best course of treatment for patients. It was developed using the company's proprietary Alcyone technology and CZT module design.
The Institute for Radioelements (IRE), a pioneer in the manufacturing of Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99), the radioisotope that is most frequently used in nuclear medicine for diagnostics, announced that it has produced its first batch of Mo-99 Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) for the US market.
