CTI, Toshiba to work on integrated PET/CT

CTI PET Systems (CPS) and Toshiba Medical Systems have agreed to jointly develop a line of integrated PET/CT systems for Toshiba to distribute in Japan.

The development agreement serves to formalize the collaborative work that has taken place between the two companies for over a year, according to Knoxville, TN-based CTI. It also expands the relationship of the companies under which Toshiba is presently a distributor in Japan for dedicated PET units manufactured by CPS, which is a unit of CTI Molecular Imaging.

Under the agreement, the new PET/CT platform is being designed based on the PET technology of CPS and the CT technology of Toshiba. The first prototype PET/CT developed between CPS and Toshiba was unveiled in Japan at the Congress of the Japan Radiological Society on April 8 this year. CPS and Toshiba anticipate that the new PET/CT will be commercially available during the first half of 2005.
