Picker International received good news last month when the Food and Drug Administration approved the company's 510(k) application for PinPoint, a frameless stereotactic arm that can be mounted on a CT scanner. PinPoint allows physicians to trace the path of a biopsy needle to a target on a CT scan before the needle is inserted.

The product will be marketed with Venue FACTS, the Cleveland company's new integrated x-ray fluoroscopy/CT system (SCAN 3/18/98). Picker awaits 510(k) approval for the FACTS unit, which uses a solid-state digital detector. Both Venue FACTS and PinPoint can be used with Picker's PQ series scanners.
