 IMAGING CAPABILITY NOW COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE
 MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A new diagnostic ultrasound technique allows physicians to watch blood flow in the brain of strike victims, monitor their condition and initiate a course of treatment. According to the Courage Stroke Network, there are 500,000 stroke victims in the United States each year.

 In addition to stroke, Acuson Transcranial Imaging (TCI) will assist in monitoring the course of recovery for patients with severe head injuries or intracranial bleeding. There are more than two million head trauma victims each year, 500,000 of whom are injured severely enough to require hospitalization, reports the Massachusetts Head Injury Association.
 The TCI product from Acuson (NYSE: ACN) consists of a special probe, which the physician places against the patient's temple or base of the skull, and a new computer software package, which provides a real time look at the blood flow within the brain. Acuson Transcranial Imaging may be used immediately with thousands of Acuson Computed Sonography Systems in daily use throughout the country.
 Since the TCI technique is compatible with the leading diagnostic ultrasound equipment, the Acuson(R) 128XP system, it is faster and simpler to use than previous ultrasound methods. Acuson TCI also will complement other diagnostic imaging techniques, such as magnetic resonance (MRI) or computed tomography (CT), by adding information not available from them.
 Acuson is a leading international manufacturer and marketer of medical diagnostic ultrasound systems. In 1991 the company realized sales of $336 million. Acuson is headquartered in Mountain View.
