Jubilant Radiopharma and Cardiac Imaging, Inc. announce exclusive partnership to expand access for mobile cardiac PET offering

September 29, 2023
MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jubilant DraxImage Inc., dba Jubilant Radiopharma, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jubilant Pharma Limited, has entered into an exclusive partnership with Cardiac Imaging, Inc., of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, to provide a daily-leased rubidium solution to healthcare facilities interested in performing cardiac PET. Offering healthcare facilities with the option to either use a flexible daily-leased rubidium program or build a full time PET program will ultimately increase access for suspected CAD patients to state of the art imaging with cardiac PET.

“This partnership with Cardiac Imaging allows unprecedented access of RUBY Rubidium Elution System™ and RUBY-FILL® (Rubidium Rb82 generator) to various types of facilities interested in performing cardiac PET,” said Sergio Calvo, President, Jubilant Radiopharma, Radiopharmaceuticals Division. “Given our mutual goal to expand patient access to state-of-the-art myocardial perfusion, the partnership was a natural next step for both companies. Cardiology practices will have the ability to start a cardiac PET program on a part-time basis, and then determine how it will fit into a broader program for their patients in the future.”

“At Cardiac Imaging, our priority has always been to provide patients with access to the leading cardiac care services. Through our partnership with Jubilant, we’re able to further that mission and offer a Cardiac PET solution for every practice,” said Sam Kancherlapalli, CEO, Cardiac Imaging, Inc. “Our daily-leased rubidium program is the newest addition to our portfolio, and we’re thrilled to have an innovative, patient-centric partner in Jubilant as we continue to drive forward.”

Cardiac Imaging, Inc. is the nation’s leading provider of cardiac PET services through their mobile and fixed site services. Their cutting-edge fleet of mobile coaches delivers all-inclusive Cardiac PET/CT imaging services straight to cardiologists’ offices. Cardiac Imaging, Inc.’s fixed site program is a comprehensive turnkey offering, enabling physicians to administer Cardiac PET in their own facilities. Through these solutions, Cardiac Imaging, Inc. is advancing the field of cardiac PET and delivering premier cardiac care across the US.

Jubilant Radiopharma and Cardiac Imaging, Inc. will both have a booth at the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) meeting held September 29 to October 1, 2023 at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto, Canada, booth 201 and booth 101, respectively.
