Ultrasound vendor Acuson scored a coup this month when it sold 10 echocardiography systems, combined with its KinetDx PACS product, to Health First Heart Institute of Brevard, FL. Health First has installed one of Acuson’s Aspen units and nine of its Sequoia C256 units, along with KinetDx, at hospitals and clinics in its network: Cape Canaveral Hospital, Palm Bay Community Hospital, Health First Healthplex Outpatient Clinic, and Holmes Regional Medical Center. The Aspen and Sequoia systems will include Acuson’s Imagegate hardware and software upgrade package, which it launched in September (SCAN 9/15/99).

Acuson introduced KinetDx in April at the Symposium for Computer Applications in Radiology in Houston (SCAN 5/12/99). KinetDx will link all four of Health First’s facilities into a single network.
