The MegaScan line of monitors formerly sold by EMED found a new home after monitor manufacturer Aydin Displays acquired the business from Access Radiology. The deal should help Aydin expand into the healthcare business from its core activities in military and industrial displays. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Teleradiology firm EMED provided MegaScan monitors to PACS OEMs, and Access of Lexington, MA, acquired the line with its purchase of EMED in December (SCAN 11/25/98). Access sold the division to Aydin as part of a larger strategy of focusing on electronic medical imaging technology and systems, according to Scott Sheldon, Access CEO.

Although Aydin Displays has primarily developed CRT monitor technology for military and industrial applications, the Horsham, PA-based company has begun developing active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD) flat-panel technology for medical uses. The MegaScan deal offers Aydin a line of high-resolution medical imaging CRT monitors and gives MegaScan financial stability, according to Aydin.
