1 European distribution for CT April 09

2 A Stereotactic Biopsy and Treatment System — improving physician and patient outcomes and reducing side effects. Flagship Product TargetScan Touch™

3 Touchscreen Panel PC Visually displays GUI and US Images Replaces Mouse and Control Box Input Provides Virtual Keyboard Stores Data and Controls Unit Ultrasound Probe USB Connection Transmits and Receives Acoustic Signals Converts and Processed Signals DK Articulating Arm Stable Platform for Probe Optional on Treatment Configuration System Stand Supports System Components Bluetooth Printer Not Shown

4 Point and Click Interface: ‘Touch’ the Needle and Instantly Image in the Other Plane No Need to Purchase a $20,000 Digital Stepper, Connect Straight into your treatment planning software. Real-Time Dosimetry Version with two Monitor Mounts for System and Laptop Smaller Footprint for Your Brachytherapy Needs

5 TargetScan: What’s the Difference? 4 World-Wide Unique Features:  Motionless probe  Pliable needle  Interactive software  Touch-screen control

6 TargetScan: What’s the Difference? Stationary Probe Minimizes Movement Automation Patient Comfort Digital Controls

7 TargetScan: What’s the Difference? Pliable Needle A llows access to the prostate while maintaining the stability of the stationary probe Ensures needle placement when targeting planned biopsy or treatment points. Allows needle to be bent and directed towards specific targets in prostate

8 TargetScan: What’s the Difference? Interactive Software Coordinates confirm and record pre-planned biopsy sites and assist in locating treatment targets Interact with both the sagittal and transverse planes Efficiently generate 3-D images throughout the gland Adaptable: Provides platform to integrate future research

9 TargetScan: What’s the Big Deal? A Coordinate System Standardization Planning Reproducibility Feedback Loop

10 TargetScan: Biopsy New Information Split Screen Orthogonal Orientation Planned Locations Stored Locations

11 TargetScan: Therapy New Information Split Screen Orthogonal Orientation Point and Click No Searching

12 TargetScan: Clinical Results  Cancer detection rate for first time biopsy was 55.5% compared to the average of ~27% of traditional TRUS-guided biopsy techniques  Detection rate for the second biopsy was 27.7%, compared to the average of ~17% of traditional TRUS- guided biopsy techniques Vladimir Mouraviev 1, Janice M Mayes1, Leon Sun1, John Madden2, Judd Moul1, and Thomas J Polascik, 1 Duke Prostate Center and Division of Urologic Surgery, Department of Surgery 2 Department of Pathology; Duke University Medical Center, Durham, NC Presented at: First International Workshop on Focal Therapy and Imaging of Prostate Cancer, February 21-22, 2008, Washington Duke Inn and Golf Club, Durham, North Carolina)

13 TargetScan: Clinical Results  Of 23 prostatectomy specimens, 20 (87%) had pathologically significant disease.  The biopsy predicted the prostatectomy Gleason score in 12 patients (52%), overestimated in two (9%), underestimated in eight (35%), and biopsy Gleason score could not be assigned in one (4%) Ifeanyichukwu I.
