The Food and Drug Administration cleared Toshiba America Medical Systems' coincidence detection imaging software for its Toshiba E. Cam last month, according to Lin Sinclair, product manager for the company's nuclear medicine division. Toshiba's E.Cams are supplied by Siemens Medical Systems, and the Hoffman Estates, IL, vendor obtained a 510(k) for its E.Cam coincidence package in October 1997. Toshiba of Tustin, CA, was required to apply for its own clearance, however, because its version of E.Cam uses Sun Microsystems UltraSparc computers, rather than the Macintosh-based Icon computers employed in Siemens E.Cams.
