    LOS ALAMOS, N.M., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- IMTEC Corporation proudly
 presents the SPRITE, a revolutionary new low cost, small footprint CT
 system. Designed with a new level of ease of use and scanning speed, the
 SPRITE joins IMTEC's line of industry leading industrial scanning systems.
     "IMTEC has greatly simplified CT with the introduction of the SPRITE,"
 said IMTEC President and CEO Tim Thompson. "With this new user-friendly
 machine, CT is now practical for users of all levels of experience."
     The system uses state-of-the art touchscreen technology as its User
 Interface, and an advanced 4-stage rotary system to simplify and ensure
 successful scanning setup and execution. "The SPRITE system represents a
 revolution in Computed Tomography. It brings many new innovations to market
 all in one package -- low cost, convenient size and automated scanning.
 SPRITE will vastly expand the 3D scanning market," said Tom Nora, IMTEC
 Product Manager for CT Technologies.
     The IMTEC Technology Center in Los Alamos, New Mexico is well known for
 over a decade's worth of experience in industrial imaging. Drawing on this
 experience and expertise, IMTEC has created a simple system that retains
 all of the features associated with IMTEC's Industrial FlashCT(R) product
 line. The result is a system that can be used with minimal training and
 setup, allowing the user to begin scanning immediately. Using the SPRITE is
 as simple as placing a sample on the stage, closing the door and pressing
     The SPRITE also has other convenient features: rollers for ease of
 movement and dimensions small enough to allow passage through any
 conventional doorway. With the SPRITE, IMTEC continues to realize its long
 term strategy of incorporating FlashCT(R) imaging technology in areas not
 previously associated with industrial and healthcare 3D imaging.
