In the medical technology industry, experienced investors pay attention to sectors whose technological advances promise to deliver extraordinary new products that could change the face of healthcare. Sometimes they pay a lot of attention.

That has certainly been the experience of OmniSonics Medical Technologies Inc. (Wilmington, MA), whose recently closed C round of funding has turned out to be one of the largest venture capital deals of the past year. Originally closed in October 2003 at $26 million, the round was reopened to take in oversubscription that eventually increased the company's total by about 60%. By the end of February 2004, the round's final tally had reached $43 million, making the company the top medical device VC fundraiser of the year.
