 FIDELITY MEDICAL NAMES INDUSTRY EXECUTIVE AS CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER
 FLORHAM PARK, N.J., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry F. Keller, 58, a senior executive with top international management experience in the medical imaging industry, was elected as chief operating officer of Fidelity Medical, Inc. (NASDAQ: FMSI). He will be elected a director at the board's next meeting. Keller will report to Werner J. Haas, president and chief executive officer who joined Fidelity Medical, from Siemens A.G., in July.
 Herbert Grossman, chairman of the board, commented, "With the addition of Hank Keller, Fidelity Medical now has the senior management in place to move forward aggressively toward growth and profitability. We are quite fortunate to have recruited two top-level, hands-on executives from the medical electronics field. Hank brings a wealth of marketing and operations experience, and his skills complement those of Werner Haas in strategic global management and research and development. We expect significant achievements from this team."
 Keller said that he is "most enthusiastic about Fidelity Medical's opportunities to expand applications of the company's current technology, broaden product offerings to its customer base and explore new markets worldwide." He added, "bringing Fidelity Medical to its full potential will take some time, but Dr. Haas and I hope to offer early signs of progress."
 Keller's prior experience includes the presidency of Elscint, Inc., the United States subsidiary of Elscint, Ltd., an Israeli manufacturer of magnetic resonance imaging ("MRI") scanners, computed tomography ("CT") scanners, nuclear gamma cameras and ultrasound devices. He previously served as group vice president of Picker Corporation. At Picker, he had responsibility for six divisions producing CT scanners, ultrasound and X-ray devices with total sales of $220 million. Earlier in his career, Keller was corporate vice president of Becton Dickinson and president of the Orthopaedics Division of Howmedica Inc., a subsidiary of Pfizer, Inc.
 Most recently, Keller was chief executive officer of Imaging Sciences, Inc., a venture of diagnostic imaging centers controlled by Merrill Lynch. He directed the company's turnaround from loss to profit, leading to a merger with Raytel Corp.
 Keller earned a B.S. in mechanical engineering from the University of Hartford. His advanced studies included work at the New York University Graduate School of Business and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Keller and his wife have two grown sons, and plan to relocate from the Boston area to New Jersey.
 Fidelity Medical's products include systems for real-time digital image display of certain X-ray and catheterization procedures; condensed image storage using optical disk technology which replaces cumbersome and more expensive film archives; and other innovative microprocessor- based cardio-diagnostic devices.
