Siemens Medical Systems' Nuclear Medicine Group announced this month that the Food and Drug Administration has cleared the Hoffman Estates, IL, division's Emory Cardiac Toolbox, a cardiac image processing software package. Developed by Emory University Medical Center in Atlanta, the package can be used on Siemens' Icon computer systems.

Cardiac Toolbox streamlines nuclear cardiology procedures on Siemens gamma cameras, automatically locating the myocardial apex, base, and center surfaces of the heart. The program includes a 3-D image fusion technique that processes nuclear and angiography data and allows for computer display and 3-D rotation of heart images.
