SonoSite acquires SonoMetric Health

Compact-ultrasound developer SonoSite of Bothell, WA, has acquired privately held SonoMetric Health, a developer of proprietary software to assess and manage cardiovascular disease in conjunction with an ultrasound examination.

SonoMetric's software product, SonoCalc, automatically measures wall thickness of the carotid arteries. The application utilizes proprietary algorithms for automated edge detection of the carotid artery wall, SonoSite said. The Food and Drug Administration granted SonoCalc marketing clearance in 2003.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. The transaction is not expected to have a material impact on SonoSite's 2004 financial results, the company said.
