Digital gamma camera developer Digirad has added to its product line what it claims is the world's first dual-head, solid-state imaging system designed exclusively for cardiology applications. The CardiusSST system is smaller and weighs significantly less than conventional gamma cameras, providing greater flexibility for imaging applications in office spaces, says the San Diego, California firm. Additionally, the dual-head system offers faster patient throughput than conventional dual-head cameras, enabling physicians to perform more procedures in a given time period, the company adds. Digirad noted that around million nuclear cardiac imaging procedures known as myocardial perfusion imaging are performed annually in the US.
