Zonare expands ultrasound business into Germany, Switzerland, Austria

3 October 2005

Geneva, Switzerland. Zonare Medical Systems, a developer of next-generation ultrasound technology, announced the opening of the company's new affiliate, ZONARE Medical Systems GmbH, at the seventeenth annual European Congress of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology at the end of September.

The new entity will market and service Zonare's ultrasound unit, the world's first convertible ultrasound system, throughout Germany, Switzerland and Austria. Zonare's affiliate will be located in Erlangen, Germany.

The system is based on revolutionary Zone Sonography (TM) technology. This new architecture has allowed Zonare Medical Systems to bring the first Convertible Ultrasound(TM) platform to the industry with superb image quality at a substantial price to value ratio. Basically, clinicians are able to instantly convert the system from a full-featured, cart-based unit into a premium compact, ultrasound system with all the performance of substantially larger and more expensive ultrasound units, yet, with greater portability and clinical flexibility than conventional compact systems.

"We are very excited about the promise of Zone Sonography technology and the ability to finally retain all of the ultrasound data," said Dr. Joerg A. Boenhof, Department of Imaging Techniques at the DKD Deutsche Klinik fur Diagnostik (German Diagnostic Center) in Wiesbaden, Germany. "This technology also allows us to add upgrades quickly and take complete advantage of new computing power as it is developed. We, as ultrasound professionals, and our patients will realize multiple benefits from it."
