TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 26, 2009) -

Attention: Business/Financial Editors

The Medipattern Corporation ("Medipattern") (TSX VENTURE:MKI), a pioneer in the development of medical software solutions that help improve imaging workflow and productivity, today announced its business highlights and unaudited financial results for the third quarter and nine-months ended March 31, 2009.

"Despite the current economic conditions, Medipattern has successfully advanced a number of new initiatives that position the Company to generate multiple revenue streams and improve profitability in the coming quarters," said Jeff Collins, CEO of Medipattern. "B-CAD-FOR-LIFE™ has already produced more than 50 subscribers doubling the installed base for B-CAD® since its launch in February of this year. We see the managed service model as a win-win for Medipattern and our customers as they access all of the functionality of B-CAD through a monthly payment plan, while Medipattern benefits from the recurring revenue stream. We are very optimistic that the current sales trend with B-CAD-FOR-LIFE will continue. Combined with on-going collaborative projects with GE Healthcare in the breast and vascular markets, as well as global sales opportunities for B-CAD as proven by recent shipments to China, we are expecting significant improvement in our top and bottom line performance beginning in the second half of 2009."

Business Highlights in Calendar 2009:

Note: The March 31, 2008 results were restated from last year's interim
filing due to adjustments made during the year-end audit. The fair value
of the stock options issued during fiscal 2008 were recomputed at a higher
volatility resulting in an increase to stock compensation expense of
$95,890 for the 9-month period and $49,195 for the 3-month period thereby
increasing the net loss by these amounts.
