Millennium VG Hawkeye, an imaging system that combines CT anatomic
images with PET functional images. At one clinical test site, doctors
reported that Hawkeye images influenced treatment in 25% of patients,
the company said in a news release.
During more than a year of intensive testing, researchers used
Hawkeye to create more than 1,000 clinical images. The first test
sites were at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Rambam Medical
