February 18, 2009 - MEDRAD’s Intego PET Infusion System has been named one of Medical Imaging Magazine’s top eight most innovative products of the year.
The magazine designated its top eight based on what its readership considers to be the most far-reaching, game changing or otherwise groundbreaking medical devices on the market.
MEDRAD’s Intego PET infusion system automatically measures and delivers patient-specific Fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) doses on demand. With on-board dosimetry, the system reportedly can deliver precise, repeatable FDG doses within +/- 2 percent of the measured dose. The Intego also minimizes FDG handling and is fully-shielded, reducing radiation exposure by more than 20 percent compared to conventional (syringe-based) FDG delivery methods.
