MINNEAPOLIS, May 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ProUroCare Medical, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PUMD, PUMDU and PUMDW), a provider of proprietary imaging products, today announced that it will be attending the American Urological Association (AUA) 2010 Annual Scientific Meeting in San Francisco, May 29 June 1. At the conference, the company's investigational prostate imaging system, the ProUroScan, will be presented to educate urologists about the concept and potential of elasticity (or mechanical) imaging of the prostate gland. The company will also be displaying a portable version of the system that is being developed to offer health care providers additional flexibility and adaptability in utilizing the patented technology, once approved by the FDA.
The ProUroScan system is under review for market clearance by the FDA but is not currently marketed or sold in the United States. The product is intended to be used to produce an elasticity image of the prostate as an aid in documenting abnormalities of the prostate that are initially identified by digital rectal examination. The system utilizes a trans-rectal probe with pressure sensor arrays and a motion tracking system and provides real-time elasticity images of the prostate. This system is a documentation tool.
According to Rick Carlson, CEO of ProUroCare, "The AUA Annual Meeting is a perfect venue for physicians to try the ProUroScan system on simulated prostate models."
The AUA, founded in 1902, is the foremost professional association for the advancement of urologic patient care, and works to ensure that its more than 16,000 members are current on the latest research and practices in urology.
