BK Ultrasound, Powered by Analogic, Introduces New Premium Cardiac Imaging
Software for the bk3500 Ultrasound System for the Point of Care Market

PEABODY, Mass., 2016-10-14 18:15 CEST (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Analogic Corporation (Nasdaq:ALOG), enabling the world's medical imaging and
aviation security technology, today announced that it will introduce its new
premium cardiac imaging software for the bk3500 ultrasound system at the ACEP
Scientific Assembly 2016 (American College of Emergency Physicians), October
16–19, 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

BK Ultrasound’s bk3500 system was launched in the US in March of 2016 to
satisfy the needs of emergency and other point of care (POC) departments, with
adaptable layouts that cater to all expertise levels and an interface that
walks the user through the exam step by step from data entry to reporting. This
new software release provides a level of cardiac imaging that is designed to
reach beyond POC standards to be on par with premium shared-service ultrasound
systems.

“The imaging performance on the new software release of the bk3500 is a
significant enhancement,” said Christopher C. Raio, MD MBA FACEP, Chairman,
Emergency Medicine, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, and Chief,
Emergency Medicine Service Line, Catholic Health Services, Long Island, New
York. “BK Ultrasound listened to feedback from physicians and brought
substantial improvements that will really help us at the bedside.”

The bk3500 is a robust, slender, easy-to-maneuver premium ultrasound system
that delivers superb image quality, integrated IT functionality, a long-lasting
battery, and a hybrid user-interface with both tactile buttons and touch
screen. In addition, the rapid boot-up time and guided workflow allow
clinicians to start exams quicker and finish faster.

To ensure a complete point of care solution, bkHub offers a unique, software
image management system designed for storage, quality assurance, training and
billing to help streamline the emergency department workflow and reduce the
time, cost and paperwork associated with clinical practice.

“We have developed our bk3500 ultrasound system specifically for clinicians at
the point-of-care, with features like Absolute Workflow, a unique workflow
design that ensures that the system is absolutely easy and absolutely designed
for everyone,” said Jacques Coumans, Ph.D., VP and chief marketing and
scientific officer. "In addition, the bk3500 has advanced technology such as
Vector Flow Imaging Assist, which is currently being studied to measure its
impact on fluid responsiveness in septic patients, and is a novel technology
that automatically finds maximum velocity, measuring the diameter of the
vessel, and calculating flow volume in a matter of seconds. VFI Assist has the
potential to be another clinical game changer in emergency medicine."

BK Ultrasound will feature live scanning at its booth during ACEP 2016: Sunday,
October 16, 2:30-3:30 pm; Monday, October 17, 11:00-12:00 pm; and Tuesday,
October 18, 11:00-12:00 pm. They will also showcase a bk3500 in the InnovatED
section of the exhibit hall in the Critical Care Room.
