This article was originally published in Clinica
GE Medical Systems is to distribute Imatron's dedicated cardiac scanner, the C-150 Ultrafast CT, in the US and Canada. GE Medical Systems says the product, which uses electron beam tomography technology to create "stop-action" images of the heart and measure calcium deposits in coronary arteries, is an "ideal addition" to its own range of CT scanners. San Francisco-based Imatron will assume installation and customer services activities, while GE Medical, of Waukesha, Wisconsin, will provide financing options for customers.
