Cyclomedica Australia PTY LTD
Technegas -- First Choice , Only Choice for Lung VQ imaging.
Cyclomedica manufactures medical equipment for nuclear medicine lung imaging. Cyclomedica's core product is Technegas.
The Techengas system is a device which creates Technegas; an ultra-fine dispersion of Tc99m labeled carbon used for nuclear medicine ventilation/ perfusion (V/Q) lung imaging. V/Q imaging is used to diagnose pulmonary embolism.
Technegas has been on the market since 1984 and since then over 3.5 million patient exams performed. Technegas is not yet available in the United States.
Technegas offers significant advantages over all other V/Q agents because it behaves as a true gas allowing its nano-sized particles to penetrate deep into the alveoli where they remain bound to the lining of the alveoli resulting in a very stable, true functional image of the highest quality. Showing a higher sensitivity and specificity result over traditional planar V/Q, Technegas is considered the agent of choice for quality SPECT-VQ in the asseesment and follow up for PE AND more recently in the evaluation of COPD and other airways disease.
Technegas SPECT-VQ has shown to have the same sensitivity as CT- Pulmonary Angiograms,(CTPA) with much less radiation burden to the patient and has become a standard of care for lung imaging in Nuclear Medicine.
