Gamma camera developer Digirad (Hall A, #4951) is putting the finishing touches on its marketing plan for Digirad 2020 TC Imager, a gamma camera that uses solid-state digital detectors made from cadmium zinc telluride rather than sodium iodide crystals

Gamma camera developer Digirad (Hall A, #4951) is putting the finishing touches on its marketing plan for Digirad 2020 TC Imager, a gamma camera that uses solid-state digital detectors made from cadmium zinc telluride rather than sodium iodide crystals and photomultiplier tubes. The San Diego company received 510(k) clearance for the system in May (SCAN 6/11/97) and is planning to begin commercial deliveries in 1998.

At its RSNA booth, Digirad will emphasize the flexibility and portability of the camera and will show images from all parts of the body, according to Karen Klause, president and CEO. The camera is unable to conduct whole-body bone scans, however, due to the size of its 8 x 8-inch detector head. Digirad may also show SPECT scans collected by the system.
