ZONARE Highlights New Software, Hardware and Transducer Technology for Its Next Generation Premium Convertible Ultrasound(TM) Pl

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/12/08 -- AIUM Booth #313 -- ZONARE Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase upgrades including new software, hardware and transducer technology for its ultra system -- the company's next generation premium Convertible Ultrasound(TM) platform -- here at the 2008 American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) annual conference, March 12-15, 2008.

"The mobility and flexibility of the system highlight significant improvements in the way diagnostic care is administered today," said Bruce Silver, M.D., chairman of Radiology at Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago. "Specifically, the portability of the system is extremely important because it allows us to take the small unit up to the intensive care unit to do procedures, and then back down to review at a larger monitor.

"Additionally, the image resolution is superb for such a small unit, providing our physicians with critical information necessary for improved diagnoses," continued Dr. Silver.

In the recently published Hand-Carried Ultrasound (HCU) report issued by Klein Biomedical Consultants (KBC), the industry's leading analyst, ZONARE is projected to be one of the market leaders in 2010 in the HCU market. The ultra system was also awarded the 2007 Best in KLAS for the top HCU system because it offers excellent value to clinicians worldwide, whether in its cart-based configuration or converted to the system's compact portable unit.

New Software, Hardware and Transducer Technology

The company will highlight the following new software, hardware and transducer technology at the 2008 AIUM annual conference:

--  Comprehensive obstetrical calculations package, which includes Nuchal
    Translucency (NT) and nasal bone length measurements, cerebella diameter,
    humeral, radius, ulna and fetal fibula measurements.
--  An optional battery pack, which enables cordless scanning for up to
    three hours with no need to power down or reboot between patients.
--  Multi-Transducer Port (MTP) so clinicians can easily choose between
    three transducers that are all connected simultaneously to the cart-based
--  New C6-2 curved array transducer for abdominal, abdominal vascular,
    obstetrics, fetal heart and gynecologic imaging. The transducer also
    provides excellent imaging for needle guided procedures and technically
    difficult-to-image patients. The C6-2 offers 11 frequencies including two
    frequencies each for 2D, Compound Harmonic, Color Doppler and PW Doppler,
    plus three for Tissue Harmonics.
--  New high frequency, 14-5 MHz linear array transducer* featuring a wide
    field of view as a work-in-progress (WIP). The L14-5 transducer has an
    aperture of 55 mm, and offers virtual apex capability. The transducer has
    10 frequencies including three fundamental, one tissue harmonic, two
    compound imaging and two each for color Doppler and PW Doppler modes. The
    L14-5 is especially useful for imaging breasts, small parts and superficial
--  New C9-3 curved array transducer* (WIP), which is designed for first
    trimester obstetrical and pediatric imaging. The C9-3 will include multiple
    frequencies in both fundamental and tissue harmonic imaging. In addition,
    the clinician can take advantage of automated capabilities, such as Auto-
    Opt with ZST, and compound imaging modes.

"We believe our new software and hardware upgrades, as well as the new transducer technology, will not only help clinicians to optimize clinical data and workflow efficiencies, but also to maximize their investment," said Don Southard, president and CEO at ZONARE Medical Systems. "Our new transducer technology, along with its wide bandwidth imaging and expanded range of frequencies, provides increased penetration and sensitivity as well as excellent image resolution. This, in turn, offers greater clinical information and expanded clinical applications," continued Southard.

Zone Sonography(TM) technology has enabled ZONARE Medical Systems to bring its patented Convertible Ultrasound platform to the industry, providing physicians with premium image quality and performance together with greater mobility. Clinicians are able to convert the system from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact ultrasound system, and as a result, optimize its versatility in a variety of clinical settings, with no sacrifice to image quality or performance.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
