Frost & Sullivan Lauds U-Systems for Its Unique Technology and Strategic Excellence Paving the Way for Robust Growth PR Newswire MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Aug. 28, 2012 -- The company's path-breaking ultrasound technology and educational efforts have made it a market leader in breast imaging MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the breast imaging market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes U-Systems, Inc. with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. The company has already won the 2011 Technology Innovation Award in the automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) market and has now received recognition for leveraging its unique products and demonstrating strategic excellence that has resulted in robust growth. Approximately 40 percent of women in the United States have dense breast tissue, a condition for which studies suggest that up to 75 percent of cancers can go undetected through screening with X-ray mammography alone. While ultrasound has always been an effective adjunct to mammography, especially for women with dense breasts, its heavy dependence on operator expertise was a disadvantage. U-Systems' pioneering somo-v ® Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) system addresses this and many other challenges to the standard deployment of ultrasound for breast imaging.

-- The company's path-breaking ultrasound technology and educational efforts have made it a market leader in breast imaging MOUNTAIN VIEW, California,Aug. 28, 2012/PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the breast imaging market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes U-Systems, Inc. with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Entrepreneurial Company of the Year. The company has already won the 2011 Technology Innovation Award in the automated breast ultrasound (ABUS) market and has now received recognition for leveraging its unique products and demonstrating strategic excellence that has resulted in robust growth. Approximately 40 percent of women inthe United Stateshave dense breast tissue, a condition for which studies suggest that up to 75 percent of cancers can go undetected through screening with X-ray mammography alone. While ultrasound has always been an effective adjunct to mammography, especially for women with dense breasts, its heavy dependence on operator expertise was a disadvantage. U-Systems' pioneering somo-v ® Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) system addresses this and many other challenges to the standard deployment of ultrasound for breast imaging. "Through its provision of an automated breast ultrasound solution that reduces breast ultrasound screening exam times while improving the accuracy of breast cancer detection in women with dense breast tissue, U-Systems addresses some of the biggest challenges in breast imaging today," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Roberto G. Aranibar. "As a result, U-Systems is on track for significant growth in 2012 and destined to become a key contender in the North American breast imaging equipment market." U-Systems' somo-v ABUS system automates the breast ultrasound imaging process by providing 3D ultrasound images of breast tissue, making it an ideal imaging modality for a high-volume screening environment. Another differentiating feature of the system is its Reverse Curve™ Soft Touch transducer technology. Unlike conventional transducers, this one has a concave shape that enables a quicker, more comfortable breast exam, while improving imaging resolution and reducing artifacts. The system enables rapid review and archiving of patient exams, which optimizes the workflow of the screening process and allows the operator to select individual diagnostic planes, including a high-resolution coronal view, a feature that cannot be achieved on 2D ultrasound. "By overcoming the ultrasound modality's limitations as an adjunctive to mammography, U-Systems has developed a technology that has the potential to emerge as a life-saving diagnostic aid that enables physicians to effectively diagnose the breast cancers missed by mammography," noted Aranibar. "Even given the recent controversies surrounding breast density and cancer risk, the company's commitment to investing in clinical research aimed at delivering this
