DANVERS, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boston Imaging today announced that it received the US Defense Health Agency’s Authority to Operate (ATO) designation based on the Risk Management Framework (RMF) for three Samsung ultrasound systems – HM70 EVO, HS60 and the V8. The ATO designation increases the ability of the Department of Defense (DoD) to use Samsung's ultrasound systems in Medical Treatment Facilities (MTF) worldwide.
