US testing of wood

Hi,
Can anybody tell me where I can purchase US testing
equipment for in situ nondestructive evaluation of
wooden structural elements in buildings?
I'd like to know if low frequency transducers with
conical heads specially designed for use on wood,
like the type mentioned in the paper by Sandoz
(10th International Symp on NDT of Wood, Lausanne,
1996) are available in the market.
Any information on US NDT of wooden structures
and anyone interested in sharing experience on the
subject is also welcome.
Best regards,
Nihan
