TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 4, 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, announced today that Manhattan Diagnostic Radiology (MDR) has entered into a B-CAD-FOR-LIFE™ contract. B-CAD-For-Life™ is a cost-effective solution that provides all of the separate components that are required to install, train, use and maintain B-CAD®, Medipattern's software solution which enables Breast Ultrasound Computer Aided Detection, under one monthly service fee. MDR's mission is to provide the very best in definitive diagnostic imaging utilizing the latest technology, in an environment designed with patient care, comfort and privacy in mind. Long recognized as one of the premiere diagnostic radiology centers in New York City and the surrounding Tri-State Area, MDR sets the standard in diagnostic expertise, advanced imaging technology, patient care and referring physician relations.

"MDR is distinguished by its dedication to patient care. We are committed to creating the best patient experience from the first moment the patient calls and throughout our continuing monitoring and care program. Much of the patient experience is based upon good communication between MDR and the patient, as well as between our radiologists and referring physicians. B-CAD® matches our philosophy," commented Craig Sherman, MD, Senior Partner Manhattan Diagnostic Radiology. "MDR offers state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging and B-CAD® enhances our use of ultrasound and our ability to report and communicate findings. Correctly identifying breast cancer early requires the ability to isolate changes the moment they occur. Breast changes are often subtle and difficult to definitively diagnose, we are constantly scrutinizing breast ultrasound images looking for that first subtle change. B-CAD® aides in characterizing breast ultrasound lesions and will help us to more consistently document findings which improves communication and the overall patient experience."

"MDR is one of a select few breast imaging centers in all of New York City to have been awarded The American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. MDR continuously rededicates itself to women's health by carefully adding new technologies which advance their capability. We welcome them to the B-CAD® family and are very pleased that this distinguished breast care center selected B-CAD® because they perceive the value that B-CAD® can add to their facility," added Jeff Collins, CEO of The Medipattern Corporation. "We now estimate that over 4,000 patients per month will be served through B-CAD-FOR-LIFE™, based upon average daily usage volume, once installation and training have been completed in all the facilities that have signed up for this program to date. We continue to pursue new opportunities at imaging centers who wish to reap the benefits of B-CAD-FOR-LIFE™ with this managed service model and congratulate our reseller Amy Eriksen of Physician's Consultant Medical Sales for facilitating this transaction."
