      Company Overview
       Verathon Inc. (Verathon), formerly known as Diagnostic Ultrasound Corporation, is a privately held medical device company that
       designs, manufactures and distributes medical devices and services. It is a subsidiary of Roper Industries. The company’s lead
       product, BladderScan, is used in urology, acute care, primary care, and extended care. The product eliminates unnecessary
       urinary catheterization by reducing the rate of urinary tract infection, and helps in the diagnoses of urinary-related problems. Its
       innovative product, GlideScope Video Laryngoscope, provides a clear view of the patient’s airway, allowing quick intubation.
