Three-dimensional ultrasound developer Life Imaging Systems continues to reach milestones in its relationship with B-K Medical of Copenhagen, Denmark. Life Imaging has developed a prototype that integrates Life's 3-D technology with B-K's ultrasound scanners and transducers. The resulting product allows one system to feature 2-D capabilities with 3-D reconstruction and visualization, according to Life Imaging, based in London, Ontario.

Life plans to deliver the first version of the system to B-K at the beginning of April. Under the terms of the October 1997 agreement signed between the two firms, B-K has worldwide rights to market the technology, which is targeted primarily at urology and surgical applications, according to Life.

With these kinds of collaborative relationships with ultrasound vendors, Life expects to experience substantial revenue growth. The company anticipates sales of $4.5 million (Canadian) in 1999.
