We measured CAC with either an Imatron
C-150XL electron beam CT scanner (GE-Imatron) or a multidetector CT scanner as described (27).
This work was supported by the Heinz Nixdorf Foundation, Essen, Germany; the German Ministry of Education and Science, Berlin, Germany; and Imatron
Inc., South San Francisco, GA, USA, which produced the electron-beam computed tomography scanners.
Craig Hahn, a manufacturing engineer at GE Imatron
, South San Francisco, Calif., explains that normal CAT scan systems have a ring that spins around patient at a high speed.
Lewis Meyer, CEO of Imatron
, "The level of interest in and the cardiology community support of the powerful cardiac applications of our proprietary electron beam tomography technology has never been higher.
Sensar is in negotiations with a po-tential buyer but no agreement has been reached...InVision Technologies and Imatron
entered a joint two-year research agreement, by which they will explore the use of Imatron
's electron beam tomography (EBT) technology for use in explosive detection systems...QIAGEN GmbH, of QIAGEN N.V., and Visible Genetics announced an intended three-year supply agreement, by which QIAGEN will supply VGI with certain nucleic acid sample preparation products from its QIAamp product line.

Separately, the March t issue of the AHA's journal Circulation reported that the first large, nationwide study has concluded Ultrafast CT coronary artery scanning, manufactured by the Imatron
company in San Francisco, has "excellent sensitivity for the detection of coronary artery disease."
I worked hard at providing editing, writing, and publishing skills, under limited resources, to two different high-tech firms: first at The Cyclotron Corporation and then at Imatron
Companies developing these systems include Vivid, EG&G Astrophysics, and Imatron
CAC was measured in years 15 and 20 in Oakland and Chicago by electron beam computed tomography (CT) (Imatron
, Inc.) and in Birmingham and Minneapolis by multidetector CT (General Electric Light-speed in Birmingham and Siemens S4+ Volume Zoom in Minneapolis) in all willing participants who attended the respective examination.
The cine CT, developed by Douglas Boyd of the University of California at San Francisco, who now heads a company called Imatron
, Inc., uses a rotating electron beam to hit tungsten rings and generate X-rays.
