Following Picker's acquisition of Elscint's CT business, Siemens has signed a new agreement with Picker, to carry on with the deal it had with Elscint on CT technology, development and OEM arrangements. While Siemens and Picker will continue to make their own products in CT, Siemens will double its volume of CT detectors and sub-second imaging technology. Picker points to economies of scale as one of the reasons for continuing to collaborate with Siemens.
