MUSTPAC, a three-dimensional ultrasound medical imaging device, was developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for Army MASH units. The technology can bring medical expertise to military personnel on aircraft carriers and the battlefield. MUSTPAC was tested in 1996 by the Army in Bosnia and also went along on an expedition up Mt. Everest in the spring of 1998. The Department of Defense funded development of MUSTPAC.
