Micro-Ultrasound and its Significant Clinical Benefits are Featured at Leading Prostate Cancer Conference in a Main Clinical Talk, 2 Oral Presentations and in 11 Clinical

Posters

KYOTO, Japan, Feb. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Exact Imaging (www.exactimaging.com), the world's leader in high-resolution micro-ultrasound systems enabling real-time imaging

and biopsy guidance for the prostate, and its ExactVu micro-ultrasound system will be featured prominently at the 11th International Symposium on Focal Therapy and Imaging in Prostate and Kidney Cancer in Kyoto, Japan from February 9 – 11th, 2019. There will a main talk on the Applications for Focal Therapy using 29 MHz Micro-Ultrasound (Dr. Sangeet Ghai) and two oral poster presentations on "A Multi-Institutional Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Novel First-Generation High-Resolution Micro-Ultrasound with Conventional Frequency Ultrasound for Transrectal Prostate Biopsy" (Ghai et al.) and "A Prospective Validation of the Diagnostic Accuracy of PRI-MUS for Prostate Cancer Risk Identification" (Luger at al.). In addition, 11 posters citing the ExactVu micro-ultrasound will be presented during the conference. Exact Imaging will also be exhibiting the ExactVu platform, along with the FusionVu application during the commercial exhibition. The conference and exhibit will be held at the Kyoto Hotel Okura in Kyoto, Japan.

"We are proud that ExactVu micro-ultrasound continues to build strong adoption worldwide and that our clinical evidence base continues to amass from leading centers of excellence through to smaller community urology practices," says Randy AuCoin, Exact Imaging's President and CEO. "The ExactVu micro-ultrasound system provides the highest real-time resolution for targeted prostate biopsies and the results being generated across our extensive network of customers shows the utility of the system for improving practitioners' abilities to visualize and guide their targeted biopsies".

The following posters citing the clinical utility of the ExactVu micro-ultrasound system will be presented at the conference:

  • A Multi-Institutional Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Novel First-Generation High-Resolution Micro-Ultrasound with Conventional Frequency Ultrasound for Transrectal Prostate Biopsy
  • Added Value of mpMRI and High-Resolution 29 MHz Micro-Ultrasound Targeting During Prostate Biopsy on Suspicion of Prostate Cancer

About Exact Imaging:

Exact Imaging (www.exactimaging.com) is the world's leader in high-resolution micro-ultrasound systems enabling real-time imaging and guided biopsies in the urological market for prostate cancer. Exact Imaging's ExactVu™ micro-ultrasound platform operates at 29 MHz and enables a whole new level of resolution with the benefits of ease of use, affordability, and is an extension of the current urological workflow. Using the Exact Imaging platform, urologists are able to visualize areas of interest in the prostate and specifically target biopsies at those areas. For those cases where MRI might assist (i.e., prior negative biopsies), the FusionVu™ micro-US/MRI fusion application operates on the ExactVu micro-ultrasound platform and facilitates MRI fusion-based targeting. The ExactVu micro-ultrasound system including the FusionVu application have received regulatory approval in the European Union (CE Mark), the United States (FDA 510(k)) and Canada (Health Canada medical device license).
