Solos Endoscopy to introduce new system for the early detection of breast cancer

Boston 23 January 2007Solos Endoscopy Inc. has launched worldwide its new Solos Breast Endoscopy System. Solos Endoscopy will roll out the system to hospitals and doctors throughout the world. The Solos Breast Endoscopy System is ideal for performing Mammary Ductoscopy procedures, which allows physicians to examine the mammary ducts under direct visualization. Clinical studies have shown that Breast Endoscopy or Mammary Ductoscopy is capable of visualizing lesions consistent with ADH and early stages of cancer at dramatically smaller sizes than is currently possible through mammography.


With the Solos System, physicians worldwide can find breast cancer and precancerous breast lesions as small as 0,2 mm in diameter. This is 25 times smaller than is typically seen on a standard mammogram. This means the tumour can be found up to 5 years earlier - while still confined within the mammary ducts where treatment survival rates of 99 percent have been reported.

The Solos Breast Endoscopy System employs advanced micro-endoscopes and optical technology to give physicians sharp, clear images of the milk ducts, where the majority of breast cancers arise. The system is a versatile and customizable piece of medical equipment that can support multiple procedures including biopsies, lumpectomies, and other intraductal procedures. The Solos Breast Endoscopy System has the potential to help the early diagnosis of more than 1 million cases of breast cancer discovered each year throughout the world.

"We are pleased with the development of our Breast Endoscopy System and the many benefits it offers to women's health care providers and especially the women themselves. This product could significantly help to redefine the breast cancer detection market and we believe that our marketing campaign will help increase international awareness for this life saving technology", stated Bob Segersten, President of Solos Endoscopy Inc.

Solos Endoscopy Inc. recently announced the selection of Joseph N. Gassman as Vice President of International Sales. The position is pivotal in the company's efforts to expand its presence in the European market. Mr. Gassman has 30 years of sales and management experience in the medical industry and has focused on medical devices, covering both capital equipment and disposable surgical products.

Solos Endoscopy Inc. is a health care technology company whose mission is to develop and market breakthrough technology, applications, medical devices, and procedural techniques for the screening, diagnosis, treatment and management of medical conditions. Backed by technical support, Solos' sales team can help make the right buying decisions for the hospital, surgery centre, or physician office.
