BSD Medical Announces Purchase of BSD-500 Hyperthermia System by Horizon Medical Services.

SALT LAKE CITY -- BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ:BSDM) (the "Company" or "BSD") announced today that Horizon Medical Services (Horizon) in Tamarac, Florida has purchased a BSD-500 Hyperthermia System (BSD-500). Horizon is a sophisticated, freestanding, mobile radiation therapy center that offers technologically advanced cancer care in the South Florida area. Horizon has offices in Miami and in Coral Springs. Horizon's mobile radiation therapy units provide treatments throughout Southern Florida. The purchase of the BSD-500 by Horizon increases the number of patients who will have access to innovative hyperthermia treatment. This sale is further evidence of the growing use of hyperthermia therapy in Florida and in the United States.

"Clinical studies have shown that hyperthermia delivered using the BSD-500 can significantly increase the effectiveness of radiation therapy without a significant increase in toxicity for certain tumors. We are excited to have a BSD hyperthermia system placed in the prestigious Horizon Medical Services facility," stated Harold Wolcott, BSD's President.

About the BSD-500 Hyperthermia System

The BSD-500 Hyperthermia System is used to deliver therapeutic heating (hyperthermia) using either non-invasive (external) hyperthermia, which is delivered using antennas placed over the tumor, or interstitial hyperthermia, which is delivered using antennas that are inserted into the tumor, or a combination of both. The BSD-500 has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) pre-market approval (PMA) for the use of hyperthermia in conjunction with radiation therapy to treat certain tumors.
