Ultrasound vendors ATL Ultrasound and Medison have formed a partnership to develop and distribute digital ultrasound systems in the $30,000 to $50,000 price range. The first step in the partnership will be the North American introduction of ATL Ultramark 400, an all-digital, gray-scale scanner targeted at the ob/gyn market.

Ultramark 400 will be demonstrated this month at the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology meeting in New Orleans. Manufacturing of Ultramark 400 will be conducted by Medison in Seoul, South Korea. Pending Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance, Ultramark 400 is expected to begin shipping in the third quarter, according to Bothell, WA-based ATL. The scanner will be sold in North America by ATL’s women’s healthcare sales force.
