At the HIMSS Health IT Conference in Orlando, Fla., clinical information systems provider Aventyn Inc., of California, and medical device maker Adolesco AB, of Sweden, announced they have joined together to develop the Cardiotom mobile 3D clinical imaging solution.

As a mobile tomographic gamma camera unit, the Cardiotom can be positioned and used at hospital wards without moving or interfering with the patient’s safety and comfort. According to the firms, image acquisition time is approximately 2 minutes, and the entire process, from radionuclide injection to final results, takes less than 10 minutes. The companies say that by connecting the unit to a wall socket, rapid unpacking and deployment can be achieved, which thereby reduces installation time and maintenance cost.

“We are very excited to partner with Adolesco on this revolutionary product,” said Navin Govind, CEO at Aventyn. “The flexible mobile form factor will allow hospitals and physician offices faster access to clinical information to save lives and improve healthcare efficiency.”

"This is a key relationship for Adolesco," said Nils-Arne Lindqvist, CEO Adolesco AB. “With Aventyn’s strong regional presence we will be able to provide our newest clients an advanced, yet affordable clinical solution that meets our mutual healthcare customers immediate needs.”
