FDA clears Imatron's EBT (Electron Beam Tomography) for virtual colonoscopy

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The US FDA has given Imatron the go-ahead to market its Electron Beam Tomography (EBT) scanner as a tool for performing virtual colonoscopy. The company's new EB-colonography software, which permits the visualisation of the interior surface of the colon from a "fly-through" mode perspective, makes Imatron's EBT system the only type of CT scanner specifically cleared for colonographic use, claims the San Francisco company.
