Korea-based Medison has enhanced its Sonoace 9900 with real-time 3-D, pulse inversion harmonics, stress echo, and a multiplane transesophageal echocardiography probe for cardiac study. Connectivity has also been improved between the ultrasound scanner and the company’s PC-based SonoView Pro software for ultrasound image management. Release of the 3-D capability underscores Medison’s hold on this technology despite the impending sale of its Austria-based subsidiary, Kretztechnik, to GE Medical Systems (SCAN 7/25/01).
