Distributors' extensive support and technical expertise will support growing demand in the urological markets in Italy and Spain for the ExactVu™ micro-ultrasound platform

TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Exact Imaging (www.exactimaging.com), the world's leader in high resolution micro-ultrasound systems enabling real-time imaging and biopsy guidance for the prostate, announced two exclusive regional distributors for its ExactVu platform: AB Medica in Italy and Medicina Analitica Consumibles MAC S.A. in Spain.

"With growing demand for our ExactVu platform and our commitment to the highest level of service and support, we are thrilled to announce that AB Medica has become an exclusive regional distributor for our ExactVu product line in Italy," says Randy AuCoin, Exact Imaging's President and CEO. "They join MAC, our exclusive distributor in Spain, who has been doing an excellent job developing the Spanish market - including supporting our first Spanish sale for the ExactVu micro-ultrasound at Urología Clínica/IMQ in Bilbao, Spain".

"Our mission - 'about people, about health'- is a continuous commitment to look for the most innovative solutions offering the best possible quality of life and treatment. With this point of view, it's not the first time that ab medica has pioneered the introduction of innovative technologies in Italy. We can recognize the potential of a revolutionary product and we saw those characteristics in the ExactVu micro-ultrasound system," explains Francesca Cerruti, ab medica's Marketing and Communication Director. "We believe that this platform has a real opportunity to change urologic diagnostics in making the prostate biopsy more precise, clear and targeted. With the same passion that has characterized us for more than 30 years, we are therefore more than ready to contribute to the national distribution of the ExactVu micro-ultrasound system with a team trained and motivated to demonstrate and support this technology to our extensive install base of urological customers across Italy".

"As the leading distributor for urological products in Spain, the inclusion of the ExactVu platform - along with the forthcoming FusionVu™ feature – were natural choices for us to distribute," says Florencio Gómez Montila CEO of MAC. "With offices in Madrid and Sondika and technical and clinical experts in all facets of urology, including real time targeting with the ExactVu micro-ultrasound, we are continuing to fulfill market demand for Spanish urologists and facilities that are looking for the ExactVu platform, an affordable, easy-to-use and high-throughput imaging and targeted biopsy system".

Exact Imaging uses highly specialized urologically-focused distributors, such as AB Medica and MAC, in certain key markets. In Europe, the USA and in Canada, Exact Imaging has dedicated sales, clinical applications support and technical support teams.
