ATL SHOWCASES NEW CAPABILITIES FOR HIGH DEFINITION IMAGING AT THE RSNA

 CHICAGO, Nov. 30 |PRNewswire| -- Advanced Technology Laboratories Inc. (ATL) (NASDAQ-NMS: ATLI) said that today it presented an expansion of the clinical capabilities of its all-digital High Definition(TM) Imaging (HDI|TM~) system at this week's annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago.
 The new clinical capabilities, called the Level 3 Upgrade, offer additional imaging and analysis performance to ATL's Ultramark(R) 9 HDI system in the areas of cardiology, cerebrovascular assessment and real- time quantification of blood flow (Doppler) studies. The company also previewed its Digital Laboratory, an ultrasound information and networking system.
 ADULT ECHOCARDI0GRAPHY -- NEW MARKET FOR HDI
 ATL's new P3-2 Broadband Cardiovascular Phased Array Scanhead provides high-quality cardiac images with superb near- and far-field resolution of anatomical and tissue detail. The P3-2 scanhead also supports highly sensitive steerable CW Doppler that allows detection of subtle cardiac abnormalities.
 The addition of the P3-2 scanhead extends HDI technology into a key market segment comprised of those ultrasound departments performing both radiology and adult cardiology examinations. This "shared service" capability is of particular importance in the international markets and in U.S. community hospitals.
 TRANSCRANIAL COLOR DOPPLER (TCD) - IMAGING VESSELS OF THE BRAIN
 ATL's new P3-2 scanhead also provides real-time color Doppler imaging of the brain's major vessels and blood flow characteristics, aiding in the noninvasive assessment of many intracranial vascular conditions. Additionally, a small footprint static probe facilitates examination of the cerebral Doppler signal on those patients who are difficult to image.
 HIGH Q(TM) AUTOMATIC DOPPLER ANALYSIS - REDUCING EXAMINATION TIME
 High Q Analysis automatically measures, calculates and displays blood flow measurements in real time thereby reducing examination time and measurement variability. It is the most advanced Doppler analysis program available today for abdominal, ob|gyn and vascular examinations.
 DIGITAL LABORATORY - MANAGING ULTRASOUND INFORMATION
 ATL also previewed its Digital Laboratory, an ultrasound information and networking system for the digital management, analysis and storage of ultrasound images, both still and real time.
 Available in staged options during 1993, the initial implementation of the Digital Laboratory will be an integrated optical disk drive in the digital Ultramark 9 HDI system. Various options provide workstations for off-line analysis, networking to various areas of the hospital and transmission via modem for remote consultation.
 The Digital Laboratory will preserve important diagnostic information and facilitate its analysis by the radiologist, allow increased patient throughput and reduce the expense of storing images on film.
 ATL, with headquarters in Bothell, Wash., is a worldwide leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of medical ultrasound systems. ATL stock is traded on the NASDAQ National Market System under the symbol ATLI.
