Device features latest innovations in diagnostic imaging that enable more accurate diagnosis

SYDNEY, Australia – October 7, 2013Samsung Medison,
a global leading medical devices company, today announced that it is showcasing two new ultrasound systems including
the UGEO WS80A, the first premium ultrasound device for OB/ -GYN at the 23rd ISUOG (International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology) World Congress. Samsung Medison is also holding a number of academic programs in collaboration with leading professionals at the show, being held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre from October 6 - 9.

The UGEO WS80A combines Samsung's latest innovations in display to deliver fast and accurate diagnoses in women's health. Key features include:

21.5" Wide LED Screen with 10.1" Touch Panel.
FRV™ + Inversion Mode — Faster realization of FRV™ (Feto Realistic View) that displays life-like detail of anatomic structures.
5D NT™ (Nuchal translucency)* — Enables realistic visualization of NT images that help detect Down syndrome.
5D Cine™ — Provides images that can be viewed on 3D TV for healthcare practitioners to acquire new clinical value through more accurate diagnoses of lesions and blood vessels. Apart from the clinical benefit, this feature also gives soon-to-be-parents the opportunity to meet their yet-to-be-born baby in 3D.
Features the latest breast elastography that makes it easier for users to distinguish benign from malignant masses through acquiring the strain ratio between the target and reference area faster than the previous models.

Visitors to the ISUOG 2013 World Congress will be able to experience the latest features of UGEO WS80A. Samsung is also showcasing the new high-end hand held UGEO HM70A at the exhibition center. The versatile device can be deployed across a number of fields including OB/GYN, Radiology and Cardiology. Both products will be available in Korea, Australia as well as other countries in Europe and Southeast Asia beginning this month, with a launch in the US and Japan to follow in the beginning of next year.

Samsung Medison will also be hosting a number of academic sessions including the Satellite Symposium where successful clinical research will be presented by renowned medical professionals in OB/GYN.

"We look forward to seeing what the UGEO WS80A will bring to the market following a successful launch at ISUOG 2013 World Congress. As the first premium device, the UGEO WS80A represents the latest ultrasound innovation and leading IT technologies of Samsung,” said Soo-in Cho, CEO of Samsung Medison. “Samsung will continue to put its best efforts towards developing medical devices that deliver true-to-life images and features that provide faster diagnosis."
