Ultrasound vendors ATL andInterspec have begun to reap benefits from their just-finalizedmerger. ATL's HDI CV cardiology ultrasound system was displayedat the Interspec booth at the American Society of Echocardiographyconference in San Francisco last month. The cardiology versionof Bothell, WA-based ATL's HDI platform was introduced in Europea year ago (SCAN 2/16/94).

HDI CV will now be handled by Interspec's cardiology-focusedsales force, allowing ATL's U.S. sales group to concentrate onradiology. In turn, Interspec's new Apogee RX400 radiology systemwill become a mid-tier offering in ATL's radiology line, positionedbeneath the premium Ultramark 9 HDI.

HDI CV was shown at the ASE meeting with two new probes. However,the enlarged ATL company has not yet combined Interspec technologywith its own. An Interspec-designed multifrequency pediatric transducerfor the HDI cardiac scanner should be coming soon.
