07:14 EDT 24th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

Diagnostic Sonar was founded in 1975, our aim to introduce the first real-time medical ultrasound scanner manufactured in the UK which we subsequently did a year later.
Over the following 3 decades, the company has expanded into other areas of Industrial Non-Destructive Testing and Medical Imaging. This has placed us in a unique position within these markets.

The industrial side of the company has developed alongside the medical, from the introduction of high performance transducers to the UK through to instrumentation including Flaw Detectors, Thickness Gauges and Real Time Flaw Imaging systems. Diagnostic Sonar also produce a unique range of ultra-safe Ultrasound Couplants for all industries including nuclear and high temperature applications.
