April 22, 2008 - NeuroLogica Corp. will acquire all technology and assets for Xenon CT Perfusion from Diversified Diagnostic Products Inc., looking for the combination of portable CT and Xenon CT perfusion to allow faster, more accurate and quantifiable information on cerebral blood flow in patients with a variety of neurological emergencies such as stroke and traumatic brain injury.
Xenon CT Perfusion, though used under IRB permission in the U.S., is reportedly considered the gold standard in measuring cerebral blood flow.
The CereTom is a portable eight-slice CT scanner that can be used in the ICU, ER, OR, NICU, MICU, SICU, interventional suite or medical clinic. The CereTom is compact and is 29 inches (74 cm) deep, five feet (153 cm) tall and four feet (134 cm) wide and weighs approximately 750 pounds (341kg).
