Gamma camera newcomer Dilon Technologies received good news last month when the Food and Drug Administration cleared its gamma camera. The Newport News, VA, firm submitted a 510(k) application for its Dilon 2000 system in December, just after the RSNA meeting in Chicago (SCAN 2/3/99), and announced that it had been cleared March 30. The company is completing production prototypes for the unit, and hopes to launch sales of Dilon 2000 this summer. Dilon licensed technology for the high-resolution digital gamma camera from Southeastern Universities Research Association and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility.
