DIS now accounts for more than 75 percent of total revenues, and the Company's centers of influence are beginning to produce higher bookings and revenue each quarter. Also during the quarter, Digirad added Johns Hopkins Medical Center, one of the nation's premiere academic medical centers, to its centers of influence.

However, as this expansion continues to gain traction, we'll be able to
better understand and predict not only the revenue implications but also
the timing of those revenue flows."
