Imatron CEO Lewis Meyer said his company’s sale of an electron-beam tomography scanner to The Matilda Hospital in Hong Kong not only helps the company’s finances but also may be a harbinger of an upswing in activity in the Asia-Pacific region’s capital equipment market.

The Matilda Hospital will use the EBT scanner for coronary artery scanning, electron-beam angiography, and lung scanning. South San Francisco, CA-based Imatron has placed 29 EBT scanners in Japan and five in China. This is the sixth EBT scanner Imatron has sold in its second quarter of 2000.
