DANVERS, Mass.--(HSMN NewsFeed)--NeuroLogica Corporation, a provider of pioneering portable imaging equipment in CT and SPECT, today announced its expansion into the Chinese medical device market with the approval of the company's life saving CereTom Portable CT Scanner by the Chinese State Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The CereTom is compact and lightweight; only 29 inches (74 cm) deep, five feet (153 cm) tall and four feet (134 cm) wide and weighs approximately 750 pounds (341kg). It is being used by leading hospitals and medical centers around the world.

"We believe the performance and convenience of our Portable CT scanner will make a positive contribution to the quality of health care throughout China."

Final approval of the CereTom Portable CT to the Chinese standard included several key components. The device was required to pass safety testing by an independent Chinese testing laboratory, including review of submitted safety data regarding the scanner’s history of performance. In addition, NeuroLogica Corporation’s design and manufacturing systems had to demonstrate compliance with the rigorous ISO 13485 International Quality System Requirements for Medical Devices and the U.S. Food & Drug Administration Quality System Regulations. These reviews were completed by the Chinese government agencies with no reservations regarding the systems' capabilities.
