Medical Ultrasound Bids Farewell to one of its Pioneers


December 8, 2008 - Martin Buchalter, 76, a pioneer in the field of Medical Ultrasound, died Monday, November 17th at his home in New York City. Mr. Buchalter was the president and CEO of Parker Laboratories Inc., a leading manufacturer of ultrasound and electromedical contact media.

He is survived by his wife of 45 years, Carol; three children; and six grandchildren.
