Medipattern Signs B-CAD-FOR-LIFE™ Agreement With Long Island Radiology Associates

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2009) - The Medipattern Corporation ("Medipattern") (TSX VENTURE:MKI), a pioneer in the development of medical software solutions that help improve imaging workflow and productivity, announced today that Long Island Radiology Associates (LIRA) has entered into a B-CAD-FOR-LIFE™ contract. LIRA has seven (7) facilities in the greater New York City area and on Long Island. B-CAD-FOR-LIFE provides all of the separate components that are required to install, train, use and maintain B-CAD under one monthly service fee. Since its introduction in mid-February 2009, demand for this alternative, cost effective solution has steadily increased.

"We are impressed with B-CAD's clinical value. B-CAD creates a concise synopsis of the case with a breast map showing the location, description and pictures where the lesion is highlighted by CAD," commented Linda Bolger, Director of Managed Care. "We have a large multi-site practice. Our dedicated team is focused on our patients, which means that communication between team members can be brief. B-CAD ensures that we fill in the gaps for consistent communication and improved healthcare. B-CAD will give us an advantage in our fight against breast cancer. At Long Island Radiology, we care about preventive healthcare for women. We offer a full range of state-of-the-art women's imaging services."

"Current National Cancer Institute figures show that the breast cancer incidence rate for the two counties on Long Island are elevated by 8.5 percent to 11.7 percent higher than the U.S. national average(1). The practices on Long Island know full well that they are operating in an environment where the odds are stacked against their patients and they strive to take full advantage of technology to help them find and correctly identify breast cancer earlier while it is more treatable. LIRA believes that B-CAD gives them an advantage and are pleased that they can access B-CAD through the B-CAD-FOR-LIFE program," added Jeff Collins, CEO of The Medipattern Corporation. "B-CAD-FOR-LIFE has enabled facilities to take advantage of our software and gain its benefits even in these tough economic conditions. We welcome LIRA to the B-CAD family. We congratulate our reseller Amy Eriksen of Physician's Consultant Medical Sales for facilitating this transaction."
