Zecotek Attending the Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference in San Diego, California

SINGAPORE, Nov. 2, 2015 /CNW/ - Zecotek Photonics Inc. (TSX-V: ZMS; Frankfurt: W1I.F; OTCPK: ZMSPF), a developer of leading-edge photonics technologies for industrial, healthcare and scientific markets, is pleased to announce that representatives of the Company are attending the Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference from October 31 through November 7, 2015 in San Diego, California.  Zecotek will join Hamamatsu Photonics and NuCare Medical Systems as they showcase patented imaging technologies.

"The prestigious Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference is the major conference of the year for medical imaging with vendors, customers and scientific leaders meeting in one single location," said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek Photonics Inc.   "We have scheduled a number of meetings with positron emission tomography (PET) OEMs and other leaders in the photonics world.  We are encouraged by the recent developments with our patented LFS scintillation crystals, and expect to make significant progress with interested parties."

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers holds an annual conference which includes three areas of focus: medical imaging, nuclear science and room-temperature semiconductor detectors.  The Medical Imaging Conference is the foremost international scientific meeting on the physics, engineering and mathematical aspects of nuclear medicine based imaging.  As technologies advance, multi-modality and new-generation approaches are becoming increasingly important. There is a growing emphasis on the methodologies of PET, x-ray, gamma, optical and MR imaging as they relate to nuclear imaging techniques.  Zecotek's patented LFS scintillation crystals, solid-state photo detectors, readout system and integrate detector modules are all cost effective and ideal for use in new PET scanner configurations and various types of detection devices.

The Nuclear Science Symposium provides the opportunity for scientists and engineers, actively working in the fields of nuclear science, radiation instrumentation, software and other applications, to meet and discuss new developments from around the world. The program emphasizes the latest developments in technology and instrumentation and their implementation in experiments for space sciences, accelerators, homeland security, and other radiation environments.

About the NSS/NIC/RTSD
The 2015 IEEE Nuclear Science Symposium and Medical Imaging Conference together with the Symposium on Room-Temperature Semiconductor X-Ray and Gamma-Ray Detectors will be held at the Town & Country Hotel in San Diego, California, from October 31st to November 7th. This conference is the premier meeting on the use of instrumentation in the Nuclear and Medical fields. The meeting has a very long history of providing an exciting venue for scientists to present their latest advances, exchange ideas, renew existing collaboration and form new ones. The NSS portion of the conference is an ideal forum for scientists and engineers in the field of Nuclear Science, radiation instrumentation, software engineering and data acquisition. The MIC is one of the most informative venues on the state-of-the art use of physics, engineering, and mathematics in Nuclear Medicine and related imaging modalities, such as CT and increasingly so MRI, through the development of hybrid devices. The RTSD is an ideal companion to both the NSS and MIC segments of the conference and impacts both interest areas.
