Cardinal to Provide UltraSPECT with Image Processing Solution

April 3, 2008 - Cardinal Health signed an exclusive agreement with UltraSPECT to provide cost-effective imaging processing software to cut scanning time in half or double the image resolution of existing nuclear medical imaging equipment.

UltraSPECT's Wide-Beam Reconstruction (WBR) technology is designed to reduce scan time without compromising image quality. Reduced scanning time makes patients more comfortable and less apprehensive, which helps eliminate motion artifacts during nuclear diagnostic imaging. Higher resolution imaging enables faster reading of scans and higher diagnostic confidence. In addition, the image reconstruction process is completely transparent to the department's clinical workflow.

Terms of the multiyear agreement, give Cardinal Health exclusive U.S. distribution rights for UltraSPECT's WBR image processing packages for cardiac and bone nuclear imaging applications. WBR products address the clinical needs for significant reduction in acquisition time, boosting patient throughput and comfort without sacrificing image quality, and for substantial improvement in image resolution in bone imaging, offering better lesion localization and higher diagnostic confidence. The image processing packages are compatible with most major brands of nuclear medical imaging equipment.
