FDA Gives Digirad OK to Market Ergo Device

4/27/10

Digirad (NASDAQ: DRAD), a medical imaging company based in Poway, CA, says it got regulatory approval to market Ergo, a new nuclear imaging camera system for hospitals. Digirad CEO Todd Clyde tells the San Diego Union-Tribune that what sets the solid-state camera apart is its field of view and its portability, which means patients won’t have to be wheeled from their hospital rooms to get scanned.
