Syncor Overseas, a subsidiary of nuclear pharmaceutical and medical imaging company Syncor, has acquired MRI Trinidad and Tobago, an MRI center in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

Syncor acquired the center from Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Trinidad and Tobago Ltd., said Mike Mikity, Syncor’s senior vice president and chief financial officer. The Woodland Hills, CA-based company already operates imaging centers in Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Colombia.

MRI Trinidad and Tobago generated $1 million in 1999 and Syncor expects the new center to make money for the company this year, Mikity said. Another Syncor subsidiary, Comprehensive Medical Imaging, operates 42 domestic and seven international imaging centers.

Correction:An article in SCAN 4/12/00 stated that a Syncor subsidiary operates 43 PET centers in Florida, Arizona, and Southern California. It should have said Comprehensive Medical Imaging operates 43 imaging centers in those states. Syncor plans to open its first PET center sometime in the third quarter 2000 in Rancho Mirage, CA.
