SonoSite Announces the New S-GYN™ A Specialized Ultrasound Tool for Gynecologists

Bothell, WA, December 1, 2008 - SonoSite, Inc. (Nasdaq:SONO), the world leader and specialist in hand-carried ultrasound for the point-of-care, introduced today the S-GYN™ ultrasound tool, a streamlined, custom-designed solution for gynecologists who want to perform imaging for diagnosis and procedural guidance right in the patient exam room.

“I have two great big machines in my office, but for a lot of what I’m doing in my day-to-day practice, such as evaluating abnormal bleeding, checking the ovaries or uterine structures for polyps or fibroids - I can do all that with the S-GYN without having to move my patient out of the exam room,” said Shaunie Keys, MD of Evergreen Women’s Care, in Kirkland, WA. “A big advantage of the S-GYN system is its portability and that I don’t have to disrupt work flow by shuffling patients to different rooms or interrupt my ultrasound tech’s schedule. It’s easy to learn and provides really good imaging. My patients feel more confident knowing that I will complete the ultrasound exam and they will have their results before leaving the office.”
