Naviscan to distribute PEM scanners in Colombia
Naviscan has received regulatory approval from the Colombian Ministry of Health for the commercial introduction of its positron emission mammography (PEM) scanner into Colombia.

The scanner uses PET technology to produce tomographic images that allow physicians to visualize breast tumors down to 2 mm, said Naviscan, which is headquartered in San Diego. Naviscan has shipped its first PEM scanner to Colombia which will be installed at University Hospital of the Fundacion Santa Fe de Bogota in Colombia.

Naviscan said it has partnered with Nuclear Medicine Distributors for the PEM scanner distribution in Colombia, Peru, Venezuela and Dominican Republic.
