Date:4/7/2008

NEW YORK, April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medicsight PLC, a subsidiary of MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (Amex: MGT), and an industry leader in the development of Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) and image analysis software which assists in the early detection and diagnosis of disease, announces a new global partnership with INFINITT, one of the world's leading medical imaging and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) companies. Combined INFINITT-Medicsight products for the detection of colorectal cancer will be distributed using INFINITT's global network of offices in six strategic countries and partners and sales channel representatives in 20 other countries worldwide.

David Sumner, Chief Executive of Medicsight, said: "I am delighted to announce this new global partnership with INFINITT, already the PACS market leader in Korea and growing rapidly in other major markets. Strategic partnerships such as this one are a key component of our strategy to build a broad base distribution channel enabling the Company to penetrate global markets quickly and thereby move into profitability."

"This is the ideal time for INFINITT to partner with Medicsight," said Sun-Joo Lee, President and CEO of INFINITT. "The partnership will enable us to bring the next generation of INFINITT solutions combined with the CAD and image analysis solutions of Medicsight to meet the demanding needs of our global customers."

Dr. Se Hyung Kim, Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology, Seoul National University, also commented: "CT Colonography for the screening of colorectal cancer is now at the forefront of screening technologies for this potentially fatal disease. Partnerships such as that between Medicsight and INFINITT which deliver cutting edge 3D and CAD technologies to radiologists around the world are vital to increase the adoption of this very important and life saving technique."

Medicsight's ColonCAD(TM) software will be integrated into INFINITT's PACS and 3D Rapidia Virtual Colonoscopy workstations. The latter is a next- generation colorectal cancer screening tool. Integration has already commenced and a successful work-in-progress project was demonstrated at the Radiology Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in November 2007, the major radiology event of the year. Medicsight and INFINITT will work together to prepare for a 2008 global launch campaign.
