ECAT Scintron is an upgrade to Siemens Healthcare's ECAT 47, ECAT HR+, and ECAT Accel legacy PET systems, according to the companies.

The upgrade involves removing workstations based on ACSII and Sun Microsystems operating systems and replacing them with new PC-based technology. The upgrade provides new and existing users of the ECAT-series PET systems with access to faster processing speeds, new acquisition protocols, and parts availability, the firms said.
