Date:8/10/2009

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Foundation Radiology Group (FRG), the premier provider of diagnostic imaging professional services and Vital Images (Nasdaq: VTAL), a leading provider of advanced visualization and analysis software, have partnered to bring Vital Images' advanced visualization software to FRG's customer base. FRG will utilize Vital Images' full suite of software exclusively with its customer base of over 20 non-university affiliated, suburban and rural healthcare institutions.

FRG is a diagnostic imaging professional services company offering a hybrid model of both on-site radiology and teleradiology solutions for hospitals and other institutions. The company provides subspecialty radiological services to smaller hospitals and outpatient centers that cannot afford to keep subspecialists on staff.

"We are proud to partner with Vital Images to provide a full suite of advanced visualization technology to our growing customer base," said Brandon W. Chan, chairman and chief executive officer at FRG. "It enables us to deliver state-of-the-art technologies to small community hospitals and their patients, who would otherwise not have access to these types of care options."

"FRG's business model is highly innovative and serves clinical environments that traditionally have not had access to advanced visualization tools," said Michael H. Carrel, president and chief executive officer at Vital Images. "Our partnership supports our strategy to enhance patient care by providing broad access to Vital Images' advanced visualization technology."
