Initial clinical trials for Cardius X-ACT will take place at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to improve imaging clarity and accuracy and reduce imaging time and radiation dose.

Two other clinical studies are planned for the system, which is based on Digirad's Cardius 3 triple-head SPECT camera.

Digirad hopes to market Cardius X-ACT sometime next year after receiving regulatory clearance.
