SALT LAKE CITY -- November 08, 2012

BSD Medical Corporation (NASDAQ: BSDM) today announced that the German Society
of Radiation Oncology (DEGRO) has published quality assurance guidelines for
deep hyperthermia that support the advanced phased array technology utilized
in the BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System. The press release from DEGRO states that
the addition of hyperthermia to standard radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy
improves the outcome for patients with high risk sarcomas, breast cancer
recurrence, superficial tumors, head and neck cancer, cervical cancer,
pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer, and rectal cancer. The press release
explains that DEGRO is issuing quality assurance guidelines for deep
hyperthermia equipment that have been agreed on by a consortium of treatment
centers and that the guidelines are expected to improve the delivery of deep
hyperthermia. The BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System provides the quality assurance
and treatment delivery requirements included in the DEGRO press release for
effective delivery of deep hyperthermia.


The German Society of Radiation Oncology (DEGRO – Deutsche Gesellschaft für
Radio-Onkologie) is the largest radiation oncology organization in Germany and
has more than 2,500 members. The world’s longest running scientific journal in
radiation oncology, “Strahlentherapie und Onkologie,” is the official
publication of DEGRO.

About the BSD-2000 Hyperthermia System

The BSD-2000 – developed and patented exclusively by BSD – delivers localized
therapeutic heating (hyperthermia) by applying radiofrequency (RF) energy. The
BSD-2000 creates a central focusing of energy that can be electronically
focused to target the shape, size and location of the tumor, thus providing
dynamic control of the heating delivered to the tumor region. The BSD-2000 has
Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) marketing approval from the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) for use in conjunction with radiation therapy for
the treatment of cervical cancer patients who are ineligible for chemotherapy.
The BSD-2000 also has CE (Conformité Européenne) Marking approval for the
commercial sale in Europe. CE Marking approval is also recognized in many
countries outside of the EU.
