Arineta Launches New Chinese Venture, Arineta (Shandong) Medical Equipment Co., Addressing Rapid Rise in Cardiovascular Disease Deaths in China

Updated on May 6, 2024

Arineta, a leader in advancing cardiovascular imaging solutions through cutting-edge technology, is announcing its partnership with Shandong Yituo Medical Technology Development Co. Ltd. (SYMT), a JMC-invested company. Its new joint venture company, Arineta (Shandong) Medical Equipment Co. Ltd., is anticipating the installation of its first 

SpotLight™ Duo at a leading health system in Jinan, China, supporting the growing need for ultra-premium cardiac CT in China. Arineta’s FDA-cleared SpotLight Duo provides a single-beat, whole-heart scan optimized with 140mm coverage at a rotation speed of 0.24 sec per rotation. Its deep-learning imaging reconstruction (DLIR) technology provides superior image quality by reconstructing cross-sectional images, which allows for a more complete and accurate scan. The SpotLight Duo adds high-resolution thoracic clinical capabilities for lung cancer and other pulmonary diseases to its cardiovascular technology.

With China consistently in the  top 10 countries with the highest incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) the introduction of Arineta’s advanced cardiovascular and thoracic imaging technology will support the need for ultra-premium cardiac and lung CT in the region. “For patients in need of cardiovascular and cardiothoracic imaging, the SpotLight Duo is the first dedicated cardiothoracic CT incorporating all of Arineta’s patient centric technologies,” said Doug Ryan, CEO of Arineta and the Chairman of the new JV Company. “With one heartbeat, we can provide both high-temporal and  iso-temporal resolution images that can be used for comprehensive cardiac and thoracic CT assessment. At the same time, we are reducing radiation and contrast for scans while delivering more detailed and accurate images for better informed decision-making by physicians.”

“The establishment of  the Arineta (Shandong) Medical Equipment Co. Ltd. in collaboration with our partners at SYMT based in the Jinan Medical Center in Shandong is a major milestone in the growth of Arienta and our commitment to Physicians and Patients in China to address their growing cardiothoracic care needs.”For more information, visit arineta.com.
