Digirad is a San Diego-based company that is developing a mobilegamma camera that uses solid-state digital detectors rather thanscintillation crystals and photomultiplier tubes to detect scintillationevents. The technology could represent the next step in nuclearmedicine detector technology by offering improved image resolution(SCAN 7/6/95).

Digirad will display a detector head from its DigiCam NotebookImager, a gamma camera under development. When completed, thecamera will be mounted on a wheeled cart about the size of anultrasound scanner and will employ a small cadmium zinc telluridedetector for organ-specific imaging. The detector head measuresabout 8 x 8 inches and weighs 25 pounds with collimator. Digiradhopes to file a 510(k) application for DigiCam Notebook Imagerin 1996.
