ExactVu™ micro-ultrasound platform - - now with FusionVu - - enables the
highest real-time resolution for targeted prostate imaging and biopsy 

TORONTO, Sept. 12, 2018 /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 it has received Health Canada approval for its FusionVu™ application for micro-ultrasound/MRI fusion using the ExactVu high resolution micro-ultrasound system.

"We are excited to have received regulatory approval from Health Canada allowing our FusionVu application, a feature of our ExactVu micro-ultrasound system, to be commercially available in Canada," says Randy AuCoin, Exact Imaging's President and CEO. "The ExactVu micro-ultrasound system provides the highest real-time resolution for targeted prostate biopsies. Urologists who appreciate the benefit of MRI for select clinical cases, such as patients with repeat negative biopsies but with increasing risk indications, can now have the best of both worlds. They can leverage FusionVu to align the patient's MRI with the live micro-ultrasound image to either perform Cognitive Assist™ or micro-ultrasound/MRI fusion-guided biopsies, all with the benefit of the 70-micron resolution of micro-ultrasound".
 
The ExactVu installed base is growing globally and rapidly and this approval allows Exact Imaging's Canadian customers to now use the FusionVu application. FusionVu has already received its CE Mark, allowing commercial access in the European Union as well as its FDA 510(k) clearance enabling commercial access in the United States.
