ZONARE Ranked Best in KLAS as Hand Carried Ultrasound Vendor in 2007 Top20: Year-End Report

Zone Sonography Technology(TM) Developer Cited Number One in Image Quality,

Ergonomics and Throughput

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- ZONARE Medical Systems, a developer of premium ultrasound systems, today announced it has been ranked Best in KLAS as the top hand carried ultrasound (HCU) vendor in the KLAS Top20: Year-End Report published this week. Previously, the company was ranked number one in the inaugural HCU KLAS study. KLAS, a highly respected research firm specializing in monitoring and reporting the performance of information technology and medical imaging vendors in the healthcare field, continued several studies to incorporate additional customer data in order to determine Best in KLAS for 20 different categories for the year, including the HCU market.

"To be further honored as Best in KLAS for the HCU market, is extremely gratifying since this is based on our own customers' satisfaction and feedback," said Donald Southard, president and CEO for ZONARE. "ZONARE has been shipping the ultrasound system for just over ten quarters. This significant recognition helps reconfirm the rapidly expanding acceptance of our proprietary Zone Sonography(TM) technology and Convertible Ultrasound(TM) platform."

The 2007 Top20: Year-End report was the result of KLAS' effort to uncover answers to a number of questions regarding the impact of HCU on the facilities and patient care. With independently reported growth of more than 40 percent in 2006 alone, HCU is the fastest growing segment within the overall ultrasound market and one of the fastest in all diagnostic imaging. ZONARE was cited as number one in image quality, ergonomics and throughput by the KLAS HCU study.

Zone Sonography technology has enabled ZONARE Medical Systems to bring its unique, patented Convertible Ultrasound platform to the industry providing premium image quality and performance together with greater portability at an attractive price to value ratio compared to conventional ultrasound systems. Clinicians are able to convert the system, at the touch of a button, from a full-featured, cart-based system into a premium compact ultrasound system, optimizing its versatility in a variety of clinical settings, without sacrificing image quality or performance.

Unlike most other HCU systems, the system's Zone Sonography software-based architecture allows its performance to continue to improve as greater processing power becomes available. System upgrades can be downloaded via the internet, allowing for fast, convenient advances in clinical capabilities, enabling clinicians to cost-effectively maintain a state of the art premium ultrasound system.

"We are committed to maximizing our customers' investment by providing ongoing upgrades to optimize clinical data and workflow efficiencies," said Mark Miller, vice president of sales and marketing for ZONARE. "The KLAS study provides an excellent measurement of our success in achieving this goal. We will monitor our progress through this ongoing study as we continue to improve our technology and services in support of our customers' imaging needs."
