SonoSite scores NBA contract
SonoSite, a developer of point-of-care ultrasound systems, and the National Basketball Association (NBA) have signed a multiyear agreement to introduce SonoSite’s ultrasound technology to the NBA’s medical and athletic training professionals.

As part of the agreement, the Bothell, Wash.-based company will be the provider of ultrasound products to the NBA and the NBA Development League (NBA D-League). Hand-carried ultrasound offers athletic trainers the ability to examine a player at point-of-care location, including a training facility, courtside or wherever the injury occurred.
