Medicsight Announces Global Agreement With Alma IT Systems

NEW YORK, June 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medicsight PLC, a subsidiary of MGT Capital Investments, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: MGT) and an industry leader in the development of Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) and image analysis software, which assists radiologists in the early detection of disease, is pleased to announce it has signed a non-exclusive, software license and distribution agreement with Alma IT Systems ("Alma"). Alma is a leading developer of advanced digital medical imaging tools, across Europe and South America. This agreement will give Medicsight access to Alma's large and established installed base of radiology customers in key markets.

As part of this agreement Medicsight's ColonCAD API 4.0 software will be integrated into Alma's latest Colon viewer, a 3D visualization workstation which interprets computed tomographic colonography (CTC) image data. Alma is one of Spain's market leaders in medical imaging technology. It is anticipated that the new product will be offered to both clinicians and PACS customers via the ALMA 3D workstation and server-based client platforms.

Commenting on the partnership, Jacobo Gil de Biedma, co-founder and CEO of Alma IT Systems, said, "Alma is a market leader in medical imaging software in Spain and we are quickly gaining market share in Europe and South America. We are seeing a growing demand for CT colonography imaging tools. By developing the latest Alma Colon viewer with the integration of Medicsight's latest ColonCAD application, we can offer our clients complete, fast and reliable imaging technology and continue to consolidate the ALMA 3D platform as a one-stop solution."

Allan Rowley, Chief Executive of Medicsight, commented, "This agreement provides Medicsight with an ideal commercial opportunity to work with Alma and further extend our reach into the European and South American medical imaging markets. We look forward to the swift roll out of the integrated technology."

The prototype Alma 3D Colon viewer is available for demonstration on the Medicsight booth (number 13) at the 20th Annual European Society of Gastrointestinal and Abdominal Radiology (ESGAR 2009) taking place this week in Valencia.
