COMPVIEW MEDICAL FORMS STRATEGIC ALLIANCE WITH GE HEALTHCARE

CompView Medical's All-In-One Equipment Management and Visualization System Key Component of GE Healthcare Surgery Division's Product Portfolio

Beaverton, Ore. – (Sept. 12, 2007) – CompView Medical, a leading provider of integrated audiovisual systems for healthcare environments, today announced a monumental partnership with GE Healthcare through their General Electric Healthcare Surgery business, whereby GE Healthcare Surgery will be a distributor of the CompView Medical NuBOOM® video integration and equipment management system. This unique agreement enhances the minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedure market that GE Healthcare supports through it's OEC products as the combined efforts of both companies provide a complete surgical solution for in-patient hospital facilities and outpatient ambulatory surgical centers (ASC's). This is the first time video integration equipment has been represented by a surgical fluoroscopic imaging company.

NuBOOM is the only all-in-one equipment management and video visualization system that delivers four fully adjustable high definition (HD) monitors around the operating room table. The system provides surgeons and members of the operating room (OR) staff ergonomically-sound viewing angles of high quality images from anywhere within the operating field.

“We're excited to have GE OEC as a distribution partner, “said Paul White, President and founder, CompView Medical. “GE OEC is a market leader in the minimally invasive surgery sector, so this relationship further validates the NuBOOM product platform and establishes a solid foundation for further product enhancements.”

GE OEC, part of the GE Healthcare division, is the market leader in Mobile C-Arm Fluoroscopy systems. The company develops computer-based X-ray and fluoroscopic imaging systems for hospitals, outpatient clinics and surgical centers. The firm’s X-ray imaging systems combine radiographic and fluoroscopic imaging with digital image-processing capabilities to improve image quality, lower X-ray dosage and reduce costs. Doctors use GE OEC's products during minimally invasive procedures to help them see what they are doing.

“GE Healthcare OEC Surgery Division is thrilled to be partnering with CompView Medical, as a distributor for the NuBOOM video integration and equipment management system,” said Steven

F. Penderghast, National Sales Manager of GE OEC. “The NuBOOM complements GE OEC's product portfolio of Mobile C-Arm Fluoroscopic Systems, surgical imaging tables and accessories. GE OEC continually strives to meet our customer’s demands for imaging and equipment solutions to support high tech minimally invasive surgery. The NuBOOM is a key component of that solution, and is another reason why our customers continue to rely on GE OEC to provide the best technology available in a demanding market.”

CompView Medical’s History
CompView Medical entered the MIS market in 2005, seizing the opportunity and need for better ergonomics and MIS visualization technologies in the OR. The group’s two primary products, NuBOOM and DOCS®, directly challenge industry standards on a number of levels.

Installation of ceiling mounted equipment management and visualization systems generally exceeds 30 days and requires a degree of remodeling, while NuBOOM is typically installed in less than two days with no remodeling. NuBOOM delivers MIS suite capability at one-half of the cost associated with upgrading OR suites with ceiling mounted systems because there is no requirement for overhead structural work.
