ADAC Laboratories has a first customer for its recently approved Skylight nuclear medicine camera: Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Cedars-Sinai placed an order for the $1 million imaging device, along with a C-PET positron emission tomography system and three Forte gamma cameras, at the end of May. ADAC will begin delivering systems sometime in the company's fiscal year 2001, which begins in October.

The cameras will be installed in the hospital's S. Mark Taper Imaging Department. Nonprofit Cedars-Sinai's imaging department performs more than 264,000 examinations annually.

ADAC claims the gantry-free Skylight system is revolutionary in design. Its architecture allows gamma detectors to be mounted in a room structure, which removes limitations associated with the floor-based mechanical gantries of other nuclear medicine systems. ADAC received FDA approval to market the Skylight in May (SCAN 5/10/00).
