The nuclear medicine service of the Spanish region of Navarra in Pamplona is the recipient of the country's first robot-assisted gamma camera. The unit involved is the SKYLight nuclear medicine camera, made by ADAC Laboratories. The hospital has praised the unit's high flexibility, patient access and image quality. Navarra's nuclear medicine service hopes that these features will enable it to achieve a 60% increase in patient throughput. In 2001, the hospital performed some 8,600 scans and administered around 5,500 doses of radiopharmaceuticals. ADAC Laboratories, of Milpitas, California, was acquired by Philips Medical Systems in December 2000.
