New agreement widens imaging agent availability

Cardinal Health : 19 March, 2008  (Company News)
Cardinal Health and GE Healthcare reached an agreement to broaden the availability of GE Healthcare's Myoview (Tetrofosmin) cardiac imaging agent through Cardinal Health's leading network of specialised nuclear pharmacies.
The agreement will give Cardinal Health's customers greater access to Myoview, a leading myocardial perfusion imaging technetium agent used in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.

'With this agreement, Myoview will over time become the flagship branded cardiac imaging agent offered through Cardinal Health's nuclear pharmacies,' said John Rademacher, president, Nuclear and Specialty Pharmacy Services for Cardinal Health. 'Our commitment to the nuclear pharmacy business runs deep, and partnering with GE Healthcare to provide broader access to their product portfolio illustrates the unique way Cardinal Health can bring service and value to our customers and the nuclear medicine community.'

Cardinal Health operates the largest radiopharmacy network in the USA with more than 150 nuclear pharmacy locations. The company is also the largest employer of nuclear pharmacists in the world. The combination of that expertise and the size of its network allow Cardinal Health to reach 85 percent of all US hospitals within three hours and provide service and clinical expertise to the nuclear medicine community.

'GE Healthcare and Cardinal Health are ideal collaborators to advance the field of nuclear medicine,' said John Chiminski, president and chief executive officer of Medical Diagnostics at GE Healthcare. 'Myoview has been a strong and growing brand in the nuclear cardiac imaging market for more than a decade, and partnering to bring it to Cardinal Health's radiopharmacies will help clinicians reach even more patients.'

'We are committed to continually investing in nuclear medicine,' said Chiminski. 'We believe working together with Cardinal Health will help us to do just that.'
