HOUSTON, Aug. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bederra Corporation , a medical imaging and diagnostic company, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary Lumar Imaging, Inc. has entered into a Joint Venture (JV) agreement with Advanced Nuclear Consultants, LLC, a leading provider of refurbished nuclear gamma cameras with state-of-the-art technology. According to the JV, Lumar's facility will offer nuclear imaging services in the areas such as Cardiac, Bone, Brain, Thyroid, Gastrointestinal and a variety of other specialized Imaging tests.
The non-invasive nature of nuclear medicine imaging systems makes it favorable for physicians and patients alike, and demand for nuclear medicine is dramatically on the rise.
