The Commission instituted this investigation on December 2, 2005, based on a complaint filed by SAS Praxim (“SAS”) of La Tronche, France, and Varian Medical Systems, Inc. (“Varian”) of Palo Alto, California. The complaint, as supplemented, alleged violations of section 337 by Resonant Medical, Inc. (“Resonant”) of Montreal, Canada, in the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain devices for determining organ positions and certain subassemblies thereof by reason of infringement of claims 1, 2, 5, and 10 of U.S. Patent No. 5,447,154. 70 FR 72314 (2005).

On February 16, 2006, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 5) granting a motion to intervene as a complainant filed by non-party Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble) (“UJF”) of Grenoble, France. That ID was not reviewed by the Commission.

On April 10, 2006, the three complainants and sole respondent Resonant jointly moved to terminate the investigation in its entirety on the basis of a settlement agreement. On April 20, 2006, the Commission investigative attorney filed a response supporting the joint motion. On April 25, 2006, the ALJ issued an ID (Order No. 12) granting the joint motion to terminate.

No petitions for review of the ID were filed.

The authority for the Commission's determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in section 210.42 of the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.42).
