Regulatory clearances obtained in late September will enable Sumitomo Metal Industries, the exclusive sales agent for ADACLaboratories in Japan, to begin selling several dual-head gammacameras designated for export to Japan by the Milpitas, CA, company.

The Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare approved applicationsfor ADAC's Vertex Plus, Solus, and Cardio nuclear imaging systems.The ministry also cleared Molecular Coincidence Detection, ADAC'shigh-energy imaging technique.

Vertex Plus is ADAC's premium variable-angle camera, Solusis a fixed 180° dual-head optimized for oncology, and Cardiois a fixed 90° dual-head system devoted to cardiology.

The approval of MCD was the first of its kind for a high-energyimaging system in Japan, according to ADAC officials. ADAC's optionalMCD feature enables Vertex and Solus gamma cameras to performcoincidence-based fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) imaging with a SPECTcamera.
