Privately owned gamma camera manufacturer Digirad announced that it has received $10 million in private equity financing. The most notable investors are Columbia/HCA Healthcare, the largest hospital chain in the U.S., and Mitsui, Digirad’s Japanese distributor.

Digirad will use the funds to increase its manufacturing capacity and expand its sales and marketing efforts. The company is headquartered in San Diego. Its primary product to date is the 2020tc Imager, a portable gamma camera that uses innovative solid-state detectors instead of the conventional photomultiplier tubes and sodium iodide scintillation crystals used in other gamma cameras.
