Analogic Corporation: BK Ultrasound, Powered by Analogic, Launches bk5000 Ultrasound System Designed for Surgery

Premium System Offers Superb Image Quality, Simplicity and SpeedPEABODY, Mass., Oct. 06, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Analogic Corporation
(Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and aviation security
technology, today announced the launch of the bk5000(TM) Ultrasound System,
the newest addition to its flagship BK Ultrasound brand products. The design
of the bk5000 will give surgeons the real-time guidance they need in the
operating room, seamlessly fitting into the rhythm of the surgical team.

The bk5000 is designed to help surgeons work smarter and faster. The superior
image quality of the bk5000 provides surgeons with the anatomical detail they
need to help confirm or adjust their procedure in real-time. The new No-Touch
Autogain feature rapidly and automatically optimizes image quality without
user intervention, independent of depth, by adapting gain to different
environments.

Advanced features include elastography, which allows the surgeon to see subtle
differences in tissue stiffness, and contrast imaging, which helps identify
specific regions of interest. Sensitive color and pulsed wave Doppler make it
easy to see flow location and direction. The bk5000 has standard presets that
allow quick mode changes and customizable presets to provide immediate image
preferences. A rapid boot-up time, typically under 20 seconds, ensures that
the system is ready when needed, even if the on-board battery isn't fully
charged.

The bk5000 has a large, 19-inch monitor and is compatible with an array of
eight highly-specialized surgical transducers that support clinical
applications such as colorectal surgery, general surgery, and neurosurgery.

"We considered the increasing complexities of healthcare technology,
specifically in the operating room, and designed the bk5000 for simplicity,"
said Jacques Coumans, vice president, chief marketing officer and chief
scientific officer at Analogic. "The bk5000 addresses the need for fast,
high-quality imaging that will help the surgeon make confident decisions."

"We were very impressed with the new bk5000," said Dr. Gavin Quigley,
consultant neurosurgeon at Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. "The image
quality is the best we've seen. The No-Touch Autogain feature automatically
adjusts the system settings for a great image so you are ready to go
immediately. This allows the surgeon to verify the anatomy and provides a
higher degree of confidence during our neurosurgical procedures."

The new bk5000 ultrasound system and its accompanying transducers will be
presented at the 2015 American College of Surgeons (ACS) meeting in Chicago,
Illinois, October 4-8. It made its European debut at the 67th Congress of the
German Society of Urology (DGU) meeting in Hamburg, Germany, September 23-28.
