ATL Ultrasound continues to enjoy the fruits of its product development relationship with Medison of Korea. The Bothell, WA, company last week introduced a new color ob/gyn scanner, Ultramark 400C, that is the third system developed by the two companies since they signed their R&D joint venture last year.

Ultramark 400C builds on Ultramark 400, a digital grayscale system developed by Medison that ATL introduced last spring (SCAN 5/13/98). ATL believes the new scanner offers digital color imaging at a breakthrough price point for the ob/gyn segment. Color-flow ob/gyn imaging can help sonographers evaluate pelvic masses or ectopic pregnancies, and allows clinicians to more closely observe the hemodynamic status of a fetus. Meanwhile, Ultramark 400C’s grayscale capabilities support breast imaging, the company said.
