Uscan, our flagship product for advanced ultrasound in bladder care, was approved in Japan on August 1, 2016. We have been busy introducing this innovative device to the Japanese market, and I am pleased to announce that we received our first purchase from a practitioner clinic. On October 31, 2016, Ito Clinic located in Tosu (Saga Prefecture, Japan) received its Uscan unit. Ito Clinic specializes in urology, sexually transmitted diseases and dermatology, as well as provides treatment to patients with frequent urination and urinary incontinence. Ito Clinic’s decision to purchase Uscan was driven by the fact that its tablet design and general operation is easy for nurses to use, particularly when measuring residual urine. Furthermore, Ito Clinic liked how Uscan has abdominal ultrasound capabilities. Dr. Hiroki Ito, hospital director, said that he hopes this purchase will allow the hospital to begin house calls.
We are encouraged by the positive reception of Uscan in Japan and will share other updates in the months ahead.
