Acuson of Mountain View, CA, has migrated its Native Tissue Harmonic Imaging technique to its 128XP ultrasound scanners. NTHI was first introduced on the super-premium Sequoia system last year. Since then it has been moved to other systems in the company’s product line, such as Aspen and 128XP. The upgrade will begin shipping next year and will be available to all 128XP users.

In other Acuson news, the company landed a preferred provider contract with Columbia/HCA, which named Acuson as one of three ultrasound providers to the hospital chain. The deal extends an existing relationship between Acuson and Columbia. Acuson estimated that the agreement will be worth about $15 million over the next two years.
