Today, publically-listed DIGIRAD CORPORATION provides advanced cardiovascular imaging services solutions and solid-state nuclear medicine imaging products to nearly 1,000 clients worldwide.

DIGIRAD's proprietary technology is based on solid-state semiconductor technology, which was developed in-house and originally used in defense technology applications.”
