August 7, 2023 (Caesarea, Israel).Arineta Cardio Imaging is excited to announce the FDA 510(k) clearance of the SpotLight and SpotLight Duo family of cardiovascular CT (CCT) scanners. The 2 products extend Arineta’s leadership as the only dedicated cardiovascular CT system, and the Duo system adds high resolution thoracic clinical capability, including for lung cancer, COVID19, and other pulmonary diseases.Both the SpotLight and SpotLight Duo systems add extended coverage for peripheral vascular and runoff studies, a rapidly growing procedure for vascular therapies.
“Arineta has been the leader in cardiovascular CT technology, and the new SpotLight systems continue Arineta’s history of clinical innovation”, said Scott Schubert, Arineta CEO. “Our vision is to grow cardiac CT as the front-line non-invasive test for diagnosing, therapy planning and monitoring of cardiovascular disease … the #1 cause of death and costs for healthcare worldwide.”
“The recent change in guidelines from the ACC and AHA are now clear that Cardiac CT is the Level 1A evidence recommended test for diagnosis of stable and acute chest pain,” said Chaim Lotan MD, Professor at Hadassah-Hebrew University. “According to the World Health Organization, 4 of the top 6 causes of death are cardiovascular and thoracic diseases*.”
The SpotLight system is a 25cm Field of View (FOV) dedicated CCT system, enabled by Arineta’s proprietary Stereo CT technology. SpotLight has best-in-class specifications for temporal resolution (120msec), 1 beat whole heart coverage (14cm), spatial resolution (0.5mm detector), and x-ray tube power for superior image quality (139kW effective). SpotLight Duo is the 2nd generation of Arineta CT technology, with 45cm high resolution scanning for full cardio-thoracic clinical applications. Both systems include workflow advances for higher patient throughput.
At the recent Society of Cardiovascular CT (SCCT) conference, Arineta users presented “Cardiac CT in an office/outpatient setting”, and highlighted Arineta’s leadership in bringing CCT to point-of-care. Also showcased was Arineta’s unique Mobile CCT system, that expands access to underserved populations in rural, outpatient, and community hospital settings. This will grow Cardiac CT access without requiring a CT scanner and expensive construction at every site.
