Positron Corporation (OTCBB:POSC), a Cardiac Molecular Imaging Solutions Company, announced today that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received 510(k) submission for the Company’s jointly developed Attrius™ Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scanner product line. This is the first in a series of nuclear imaging products Positron plans to develop through its joint venture Neusoft Positron Medical Systems, based in Shenyang, China. Positron’s Attrius™ is a cardiac specific PET only device that competes with other cardiac imaging modalities with its superior quantification capabilities and disease management software all at an attractive price point.

Joseph Oliverio, President of Positron states that “This 510(k) submission is a significant milestone for Positron. Through our joint venture Neusoft Positron Medical Systems we have developed a state of the PET scanner in the Attrius™ that adds great value to our company and our nuclear cardiology product solutions.” Oliverio also stated, “The industry has seen an increasing market demand for cardiac PET. This increase stems from favourable reimbursement compared to other imaging modalities combined with its improved diagnostic accuracy. Positron’s Attrius™ PET scanner is the solution that thousands of cardiology groups are looking for to improve their bottom line, reduce healthcare costs and provide patients with a superior diagnosis of coronary artery disease. We believe that we can meet and expand the existing market demand with the Attrius™.”
