FluoroScan unveils enhanced Mini C-arm imaging system.

NORTHBROOK, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 16, 1995--FluoroScan Imaging Systems Inc. (NASDAQ, NM:FLRO), today unveiled a new generation FluoroScan which provides ultra-high resolution, real time images at a cost well below conventional x-ray and fluoroscopic equipment.

The new FluoroScan version, introduced at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in Orlando, FL, features a VGA Video Enhancement System that incorporates contrast expansion and edge enhancement in real time, providing superior resolution. The system uses a non-interlaced VGA monitor that is free of traditional flickering.

"Despite the substantial quality improvements introduced at this meeting, the price of the FluoroScan remains the same as the prior model which is about one-third that of conventional x-ray equipment. Our revolutionary Mini C-arm technology has become the state of the art in orthopaedic surgery." said Larry S. Grossman, CEO. "It lowers radiation exposure by at least 90 percent when compared to traditional x-ray imaging equipment. FluoroScan systems are mobile and extremely easy to operate," he explained.

The FluoroScan Imaging System employs a "night vision" intensifier, that amplifies the image about 50,000 times. This means much lower patient dose and almost immeasurable scatter radiation to the surgeon. Since the FluoroScan is safe and fully automatic, it does not require the use of a radiology tech in most cases.
