Edinburgh-based Voxar announced a four-fold increase in annual U.S. sales to $1 million, and says it is planning to go public within the next year.

Voxar's Plug 'n View 3D, which allows rapid display of 3-D CT, MRI, and other images on standard PC hardware, has shown marketing success in Europe and Japan as well, according to a company spokesperson.

The firm recently announced new funding of $7.2 million and said it plans to relocate to larger quarters and double its number of employees to 150 within the next year.

Investors have agreed to increase employee equity in Voxar from 10% to 15%, which will "provide a significant boost to our recruitment program," according to a statement by CEO Andrew Bissell.
