BSD Medical Completes Implementation Of New MicroThermX® Direct Sales Program In Major U.S. Metropolitan Areas

BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ:BSDM) (Company or BSD) (, a leading provider of medical systems that utilize heat therapy to treat cancer, announced that the Company has completed implementation of the new MicroThermX ® Microwave Ablation System (MicroThermX ®) direct sales program in major metropolitan areas throughout the U.S. BSD has moved to a direct sales model in order to capitalize on the Company's new rental program, which allows hospitals to purchase disposable antennas and pay a fee-per-use for the treatment of patients using the MicroThermX ®. This new sales model will allow BSD to clearly focus on major areas of opportunity in the ablation market. BSD has hired direct sales representatives to cover the following key metropolitan areas: Florida, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Southern California, Dallas and Houston. The Company plans to continue to expand the direct sales program into other metropolitan areas in the future.

“We are pleased with the success of the direct sales model for the MicroThermX ®,” said Harold Wolcott, BSD President and CEO. “Our new program has already resulted in over a 100% increase in clinical evaluations scheduled over the next quarter. There has also been a significant increase in requests for purchase and interest in the fee-per-use rental program.”

About the MicroThermX ® Microwave Ablation System

The MicroThermX ® is a compact, mobile, state-of-the-art, proprietary system that includes a microwave generator, single-patient-use disposable antennas and a thermistor-based temperature monitoring system. The innovative design of the MicroThermX ® is the first of its kind that allows delivery of higher power levels using a single generator. The MicroThermX ® utilizes innovative synchronous phased array technology that was developed and patented by BSD to provide larger and more uniform zones of ablation during a single procedure. The MicroThermX ® introduces into the Company’s product line innovative, high-end disposables (SynchroWave antennas) that are used in each ablation treatment and will provide a significant ongoing revenue stream. The soft tissue ablation world market potential is estimated to exceed $2.3 billion. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted the Company a 510(k) clearance to market the MicroThermX ® for ablation of soft tissue. BSD has also received CE Marking for the MicroThermX ® System, which allows BSD to market the MicroThermX ® in Europe. CE Marking is also recognized in many countries outside of the EU, providing BSD the ability to market the MicroThermX ® to a number of international markets.
