TEL AVIV, Israel, December 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Elbit Imaging Ltd. ("EI" or the "Company") (TASE, NASDAQ: EMITF) announced
today that on December 3, 2012, Elbit Medical Technologies Ltd. ("Elbit
Medical") (TASE: EMTC-M) (in which the Company holds approximately 90%),
announced that InSightec Ltd. ("InSightec") (in which Elbit Medical holds
approximately 64%, and 52.15% on a fully diluted basis) has been awarded the
European CE mark for its transcranial focused ultrasound system, ExAblate
Neuro, with respect to the treatment of neurological disorders in the brain,
including essential tremor, Parkinson's disease and neuropathic pain.

Treatment options for patients suffering from neurological disorders, who do
not respond to drug treatments include deep brain stimulation, radiofrequency
ablation and radiosurgery, which are invasive or involve ionizing radiation
and are associated with recognized radiation risks and high risk of
complications and side effects. As opposed to the above, InSightec elaborated,
ExAblate® Neuro offers a non-invasive treatment with no ionizing radiation by
treating tissue deep in the brain through an intact skull. MR guided Focused
ultrasound (MRgFUS) combines therapeutic acoustic ultrasound waves with
continuous MRI guidance. The MRI enables physicians to visualize, plan,
guide, monitor and control the treatment, while the ultrasound acoustic energy
destroys the targeted tissue in the brain. InSightec recently received its
second ExAblate FDA approval for the treatment of painful bone metastases in
patients who are unable or unwilling to undergo radiation. This is in addition
to FDA approval for uterine fibroids received in 2004.
