SRS Medical has exclusive worldwide manufacturing and domestic distribution rights to the CT3000 and expects the market to continue its fast acceptance and use of the new technology.

The CT3000 complements our company's long history of excellence and innovation in urology, across urodynamics, ultrasound and related product lines."

- SRS Medical and its investment partners, Schooner Capital and 20/20 HealthCare Partners, have completed an additional financing round.
Poor urine flow in older men is often assumed to be result of bladder outlet obstruction (BOO) related to enlarged prostate, but it can also be the result of low bladder contractility. History, symptom assessment and flow rate are not sufficient to determine which is the cause. In fact, clinical literature indicates that some 30% of patients undergoing prostate surgery fail to get symptomatic relief. Bladder pressure measurement is needed for definitive diagnosis, but many men are reluctant to undergo catheterization. The CT3000 UroCuff™ Test is the first non-invasive test for male voiding pressure.
