Positron has sold four Attrius PET scanners to cardiology practices, which ordered six scanners from its joint venture, Neusoft Positron Medical Systems for immediate delivery.

The Indianapolis-based company attributed the increase in demand for its cardiac PET systems to  the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) 2010 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, whereby reimbursement for cardiac PET increased and reimbursement for SPECT decreased, even though some of those reimbursements cuts have now been reversed.
