BSD Medical Expands MicroThermX® Ablation Market Opportunity By Introducing Short Tip SynchroWave Antenna

BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ:BSDM) (the “Company” or “BSD”) announced today that the Company has significantly expanded the MicroThermX ® Microwave Ablation System (MicroThermX ®) market opportunity by introducing a new SynchroWave short tip (ST) antenna. The SynchroWave ST antenna can be used to deliver smaller, spherical ablation zones that more accurately target smaller areas of diseased tissue (tumors). The existing SynchroWave LT (Long Tip) antenna delivers larger ablation zones, reducing the need for multiple ablations on larger tumors. The multiple configurations of the SynchroWave antenna provide physicians the ability to precisely target the ablation zone to the numerous sizes and shapes of diseased tissue, significantly increasing the number of cases that can be treated with the MicroThermX ®. The MicroThermX ® continues to allow non-parallel placement of multiple antennas with one generator and flexibility in approach angles for placement of antennas in difficult to reach areas.

The ability to easily and precisely ablate a wide range of tumors is required for successful clinical use of microwave ablation. The introduction of multiple SynchroWave antenna configurations allows the Company to market products that meet the needs of the entire interventional radiology marketplace.
