Canadian gamma camera manufacturer IS2 Research reported this month that the Food and Drug Administration has cleared its two digital single-head gamma cameras for commercialization. The cameras, NuCamma C+ and NuCamma Rx, were designed by founder Iain Stark, formerly of Park Medical. They were introduced at this year’s Society of Nuclear Medicine meeting (SCAN 8/5/98).

NuCamma C+ has a circular field of view, while NuCamma Rx is a rectangular system. The electronics of both units are incorporated into their detectors, and the systems will carry list prices between $150,000 and $190,000. The Nepean, Ontario-based company has almost completed the manufacturing of its first batch of 10 cameras.
