Services Network

POWAY, Calif., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Digirad Corporation (Nasdaq: DRAD), a leading provider of medical diagnostic imaging systems and services to physicians' offices, hospitals and imaging centers, today announced it is the recipient of Frost & Sullivan's 2007 North American Nuclear Medicine Equipment Product Line Strategy Award.

Travis Chong, research analyst for Frost & Sullivan, remarked that the award recognizes Digirad for its strategy in developing a common dedicated SPECT camera platform based on solid-state technology that offers single, dual and triple-head configurations that can accommodate physicians' workflow needs; for example, using a three-head XPO system for faster image processing and higher throughput of patients. The XPO systems can handle patients weighing up to 500 pounds and may also be configured for fixed or mobile operation, with the mobile configuration providing the ideal solution to service multiple sites enhancing asset utilization or developing outreach activities to increase revenues.

"With the integration of the XPO feature into its entire Cardius line, Digirad has developed a scalable system platform designed to accommodate consumer needs as their operations develop over time," said Chong.

The award also recognizes Digirad's successful establishment of a growing network that offers in-office mobile imaging services through its Digirad Imaging Solutions (DIS) division. Digirad was the first to develop and commercialize solid-state nuclear imaging systems and, based on growing demand for diagnostic imaging services, extended its operations by offering mobile imaging services, which now comprise more than 70 percent of annual revenues.

Digirad Chief Executive Mark Casner remarked: "We are quite pleased to be this year's recipient and appreciate the recognition by Frost & Sullivan for not only being the pioneer and leader in solid-state imaging technology but also for increasing access to this industry-leading technology through our XPO dedicated cardiac SPECT systems and mobile imaging services businesses. Demand for imaging services continues to rise while physicians are, at the same time, facing economic and other barriers to purchasing equipment, retaining licensed personnel and meeting accreditation requirements."

The Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy is presented each year to the company that has demonstrated the greatest insight into the needs and demands of its market and customers. The recipient has optimized its business line by leveraging products with the various price, performance, and feature points required by one or more of its market segments.

To select the award recipient, Frost & Sullivan analysts track end-user requirements and market dynamics. The process includes interviews with suppliers, end-users, and industry experts, and the business lines are compared with customer-base demands, with the top-ranking provider receiving the award.
