Positron is a nuclear medicine healthcare company specializing in the business of cardiac Positron Emission Tomography (PET). Cardiac PET is the superior method in diagnostic nuclear imaging for the detection of coronary artery disease (CAD), a leading cause of death in the United States. Positron’s products and services empower healthcare providers to more accurately diagnose CAD and improve patient outcomes while practicing cost effective medicine.

Positron, a pioneer in nuclear cardiology for over 30 years, is establishing a unique position by vertically integrating the fragmented and limited supply environment that exists in the cardiac PET marketplace today. Positron’s approach is to provide nuclear cardiologists an end-to-end solution by offering award-winning imaging technology, clinical services, imaging agents and innovative financing packages conveniently from a single source.  Positron's business approach will bring substantial advantages in accelerating the adoption of this superior modality and growth of the nuclear cardiology industry.

Positron Corporation is a publicly listed company. Shares of common stock of Positron Corporation are currently trading on the National Association of Securities Dealers, Inc.'s under the symbol POSC.

Key Business Components 
PET Imaging System and Services
The Attrius®, dedicated PET imaging system, is optimized for cardiology. Positron's Attrius provides customers with state-of-the-art imaging technology for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular disease. The Attrius is the only dedicated PET scanner in the world and was awarded Frost & Sullivan's Most Innovative Medical Device of the Year award as "the ideal solution for cardiologists and hospitals looking to add high accuracy, cost effective imaging technology."  Positron complements its technology by offering comprehensive world-class clinical, technical and service support through their PosiStar™ customer care plan.

Financing Solutions
Positron provides customers with a variety of financing solutions for its full solutions model designed to minimize any barriers to entry, thus accelerating the expansion of cardiac PET and further securing Positron's current and future position in the market.


Market Opportunities
Nuclear medicine helps in the diagnosis, management and prevention of patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Radiopharmaceuticals are injected into a patient to provide the most accurate, non-invasive test for identifying narrowed coronary arteries, mild cholesterol build-up or diffuse coronary vascular disease; conditions that are responsible for almost all heart attacks. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States and constitutes 17% of overall national health expenditures (Forecasting the Future of Cardiovascular Disease in the United States, American Heart Association, 2011).  Direct CVD costs are projected to increase from $273 billion in 2010 to $818 billion in 2030, and indirect costs (due to lost productivity) will rise from $172 billion in 2010 to $276 billion in 2030.
 
Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
PET is a more advanced and accurate technology. In cardiac perfusion imaging, PET scanners, in particular Positron's Attrius, have superior sensitivity and specificity compared to that of SPECT cameras. PET also produces less radiation exposure and is capable of performing quantitative measurements. Cardiac PET imaging has been shown to provide a 50% reduction in invasive coronary arteriography and coronary artery bypass grafting, leading to a 30% costs savings and excellent clinical outcomes compared to SPECT (M.E. Merhige, M.D., et al. Journal Nuclear Medicine 2007; 48: 1069-1076).  
 
The cardiac PET equipment market is much smaller than SPECT but has seen significant annual growth, of 25-30%, during the last decade. For many years, a major constraint for this market has been the high cost of PET and PET/CT scanners for cardiac studies. Positron has managed to reduce the buyers' barrier to entry by bringing to market the Attrius; the only cardiac dedicated PET system in the world. All other manufacturers (GE, Philips, Siemens) offer PET/CT systems that have a comparable performance of cardiac studies but have a 200% to 300% higher price, in relation to the Attrius. These same PET/CT systems also possess attributes not optimized or conducive for cardiac imaging. 


Products
Attrius®
Attrius is the only FDA approved new dedicated PET scanner optimized for cardiac imaging.

The Attrius provides a robust, cardiac specific imaging software package designed to ensure effortless interpretation for today's most challenging clinical cases for nuclear cardiologists.  This innovative software includes coronary artery overlay display, open architecture for new protocol development, customization and motion correction and the ability to monitor therapy. The Attrius is targeted for cardiac clinics and hospitals and is designed to meet the performance, budget and space constraints of the most demanding cardiologists.
Attrius was named the "Most Innovative Device of 2010" by the renowned business research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.

Positron achieved significant advancements with the Company's new state-of-the-art coronary flow reserve (CFR) software, developed in collaboration with the University of Texas.
The CFR software, a clear differentiator for PET imaging compared to SPECT, was developed by a leading cardiologist and industry luminary Dr. K. Lance Gould and is considered to be a key driver in the upcoming growth in cardiac PET.


Positron is PET.
