TomTec's 3-D ultrasound technology lives on. The defunct ultrasound developer has sold rights to the technology to a group of managers from the company's German subsidiary in Munich. The executives have formed a new company, TomTec GmbH, with the intention of carrying forward TomTec's 3-D legacy.

TomTec Imaging Systems closed its doors last month after its venture-capital backers pulled out of the company and its management failed to find new funding (SCAN 6/11/97). In liquidating the company, TomTec's management said it intended to sell off the company's assets.

The Munich-based management team includes Bernhard Mumm, Frank Schlau, and Ulrich Haupt, who intend to resume on a worldwide basis all of the 3-D business activities and end-user relationships of TomTec Imaging Systems. The Munich facility had been the headquarters of TomTec predecessor Tomographic Technologies, which was merged with Prism Imaging/Freeland Systems to create TomTec Imaging Systems in late 1993.

All of TomTec's 3-D products, including TomTec Echo-Scan, EchoView, and Compact 3-D, will continue to be produced and marketed. TomTec GmbH will also continue the development of Windows NT-based clinical procedure and visualization packages for cardiac and general imaging applications.
