The Health Care Products (HCP) division of Marconi Medical Systems has signed a one-year agreement for North American distribution of bone measurement systems made by Norland Medical Systems.

With the agreement, Marconi becomes the second major multimodality vendor to offer a line of bone mineral densitometers. The first, GE Medical Systems, in 2000 acquired Lunar and its line of x-ray and ultrasound BMD products.

In November, Norland signed an agreement with Cooper Surgical to distribute Norland bone density measurement systems to physician and group practices providing ob/gyn services in the U.S. and Canada. The Marconi HCP agreement is exclusive to hospitals and imaging and mammography centers in North America.
