Exact Imaging Receives CE Mark Approval for its ExactVu™ Micro-Ultrasound System for Prostate Imaging and Biopsy
Company Plans for Commercial Sales and Organizational Expansion into Europe

TORONTO, ON-- (Wednesday, November 23, 2016) Exact Imaging (, the world’s leader in high resolution micro-ultrasound systems enabling real-time imaging and biopsy guidance of the prostate, today announced that it has received CE Mark approval for its ExactVu™ system for prostate imaging and biopsy guidance.

“We are thrilled with the achievement of CE Mark approval for our ExactVu system, which is the culmination of many years of technical development”, said Randy AuCoin, Exact Imaging’s President and CEO. “There is significant built-up demand for acquiring the ExactVu instrument and this approval will allow us to be able to commercialize our platform in Europe. With the ExactVu platform, urologists will have a new level of real-time resolution to facilitate actually targeting their prostate biopsies at suspicious regions. The goal is to provide the best tools to help the urologist make the most informed decisions and ultimately, to improve patient outcomes”.

The ExactVu micro-ultrasound is a novel platform for prostate imaging and biopsies with unmatched real-time resolution (down to 70 microns). The system’s high resolution derives from its operating frequency of 29 MHz, which is in comparison to usual operating frequencies of conventional ultrasound systems of 9 – 12 MHz. Due to this significant increase in resolution, the ExactVu system enables the urologist to visualize suspicious regions and in addition to performing systematic biopsies, can also perform biopsies targeted at suspicious regions in the prostate.

Exact Imaging is in the process of expanding its European direct sales, clinical applications and technical support operations and will shortly be announcing its new European headquarters that will be based in Belgium.
