The ECAT Scintron is the first and only upgrade path available to the Siemens ECAT 47, ECAT HR+, and ECAT Accel PET systems. The ACSII and SUN workstation are removed from the system and replaced with new PC-based technology that provides new and existing users of the ECAT series PET systems access to faster processing speeds, new acquisition protocols, and parts availability.  With improved reliability and longevity, the ECAT Scintron redefines the life cycle of dedicated PET systems in the U.S. market.

T. Kuehl, MiE President & Chief Executive Officer states that "A long demanded product is finally here. With our ECAT Scintron we can close the gap between solid PET scanner technique and shortened development cycles of computer software and hardware. We are proud of our strong development team that did a fabulous job to create a terrific product."

M. Hewitt, NIS President & Chief Executive Officer adds that "It is exciting to be a part of this project in which the MiE team has put a lot of hard work into making the Cardiac PET Scintron a reality. This is the type of product that makes better imaging technology available to more patients by providing a cost-effective solution for Cardiac PET that physicians can afford."
