Nuclear medicine vendor ADAC Laboratories (Hall B, #6711) is promising a new product announcement for the meeting but is planning to keep the news to itself until the show. One new product the Milpitas, CA-based company is talking about is WebView, a work-in-progress workstation that enables physicians to interpret and process images in their departments, homes, or offices.

General-purpose and specialized SPECT and cardiac displays have been built into WebView. In addition to nuclear medicine studies, WebView supports multimodality images via the DICOM 3.0 standard. The software runs on Windows NT and Windows 95 operating systems.

ADAC will also discuss MCD/AC, the company's high-energy Molecular Coincidence Detection upgrade package with attenuation correction capabilities. MCD/AC uses an external cesium-137 radioactive source to create an attenuation map of tissue densities in the body, and this map is used to compensate for artifacts created by tissue, bone, and other obstructions (SCAN 6/25/97).

MCD/AC improves the visualization of organs and structures deep in the body and could help extend coincidence detection from oncology applications into cardiology uses. MCD/AC received 510(k) clearance in October.
