Imatron of South San Francisco, CA, has received orders for four ultrafast CT scanners, the company reported this month. Two of the systems were shipped in the fourth quarter of 1997 and were sent to the Cardioguard Clinic in Sarasota, FL, and the Cardiovascular Institute Dedinje in Belgrade, Yugoslavia.

The other two orders will be shipped this quarter to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and to a Cardioguard Clinic being planned for Orlando. Cardioguard intends to open a total of six ultrafast CT centers in Florida in the next 18 months. The systems were ordered through Imatron's distributor, Siemens Medical Systems of Iselin, NJ, which is giving up rights to Imatron's scanners in April under an agreement reached between the companies late last year (SCAN Special Report 12/97).
