IDC X-Series DR system selected for use in leading edge RSA clinical trial application

Halifax Biomedical will Integrate IDC's X1590 into the First Standardized

Digital RSA Solution

CALGARY, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - IDC (Imaging Dynamics Company Ltd.) (TSX: IDL), the global leader in digital radiography (DR) for image quality and value, today announced that Halifax Biomedical has selected IDC's X1590 as the DR component for an imaging product suite currently under development for conducting orthopaedic clinical trials for Roentgen Steriophotogrametric Analysis (RSA). Under a Canadian federal grant, Halifax Biomedical will interface its calibration technology with IDC's DR system and analytical software from Medis Specials of Holland to create the first standardized, fully digital RSA suite. The system will measure the stability of orthopaedic implants to a fraction of a millimeter and will be exhibited in the IDC booth #5430 at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) conference being held in San Francisco, March 5 - 7, 2008.

"We carefully evaluated every available digital radiography system and only IDC technology could meet our rigorous requirements," said Chad Munro, President of Halifax Biomedical. He added, "IDC's X-Series clearly contains the best technology for this type of precise, specialized application."

Halifax Biomedical delivers specialized contract research services and develops RSA-related imaging equipment for orthopaedic clinical trials. The product suite currently under development is designed to measure the stability of orthopaedic implants. Identifying the migration of implants into bone can be predictive of future failure of the implant due to aseptic loosening. RSA is also useful in assessing spinal fusion and fracture healing. Results from the first test of the product suite are expected to be available by the end of March, 2008. This test will be the backbone that allows expansion to a larger clinical network that will allow remote collaboration on standardized imaging systems.

"IDC continues to demonstrate its devotion to the orthopaedic healthcare market. This application illustrates that IDC DR technology meets the most stringent demands for image quality, accuracy and versatility," said Rick Sbordone, IDC Senior Vice President, N.A. Sales. "We are pleased to partner with Halifax Biomedical and break new ground in orthopaedic post-surgical follow-up care."
