Film and printer manufacturer Imation has inked an agreement with ultrasound vendor Hewlett-Packard of Andover, MA, in which HP will use Imation's DryView 8300 dry-process laser printers in demonstrating ultrasound scanners. DryView 8300 will be used to produce hard copies of scans acquired with HP's ImagePoint ultrasound system at hospitals around the country.

Imation and HP made the announcement at last month's American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine meeting in San Diego. DryView 8300 began shipping in the fourth quarter of last year, and is finding uses in ultrasound applications as a replacement for multiformat cameras, according to Dan Torborg, market development manager for the Oakdale, MN, company.

Imation also displayed DryView 8700, a 14 x 17 dry laser printer, at the AIUM conference. DryView 8700 is useful in networked ultrasound departments, and Imation recently shipped its 2000th DryView 8700, Torborg said.
