SonoSite reported third-quarter net earnings of $4.7 million, or 27 cents per share, up from $1.5 million or 9 cents per share in the same period last year, mainly on higher sales.

The Bothell-based ultrasound equipment maker said changes in foreign currency rates and reduced capital spending at U.S. hospitals could slightly impact sales for the rest of 2008.
