Ultrasound developer Acuson of Mountain View, CA, has signed an agreement with TomTec Imaging Systems to incorporate the Munich, Germany-based company's 3-D software technology into Acuson's Sequoia and Aspen ultrasound platforms. The two companies displayed preliminary clinical images in Acuson's booth at last month's Radiological Society of North America meeting.

The software will be used for cardiac, obstetric, gynecological, and radiological applications and will include 3-D fetal assessment surface rendering for viewing the fetal face and limbs, as well as 3-D organ assessment volumetric rendering, which allows users to reconstruct and manipulate data sets.
