Lantheus Medical Imaging is committed to the field of nuclear medicine and to developing the next generation of diagnostic products to advance patient care. The company’s clinical development efforts include promising programs to develop novel Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging tracers, including flurpiridaz F 18, an F-18 labeled myocardial perfusion imaging agent which Lantheus recently initiated Phase 3 clinical trials, as well as LMI1195, a unique cardiac neuronal imaging agent which has completed Phase 1 clinical trials to evaluate safety and dosimetry. Lantheus has additional early stage programs in the areas of imaging vulnerable plaque and other disease states.
For more than half a century, Lantheus Medical Imaging has helped physicians enhance patient care with its pioneering product portfolio that illuminates the heart and other organs. Formed in 1956 as New England Nuclear Corporation (NEN), the company grew to become a leader in the field of diagnostic imaging and later evolved through its transition from NEN to DuPont, and then Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) Medical Imaging. In 2008, BMS Medical Imaging was acquired by Avista Capital Partners and formally re-launched as Lantheus Medical Imaging, operating again as an independent company. Lantheus has approximately 600 employees worldwide with headquarters in North Billerica, Massachusetts, and offices in Puerto Rico, Canada and Australia.
