NightHawk Radiology Streamlines End-to-End Solutions for Radiologists

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NightHawk Radiology Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: NHWK), the leading provider of services to radiology groups across the United States, today announced that it will be offering its full range of services, an industry first, at the Radiological Society of North America's 2007 Annual Meeting (North Building - Hall B: 8551) in Chicago, November 25-29, 2007.

NightHawk will have representatives at RSNA to demonstrate its full range of services, including:

-- Preliminary and Off-Hours Interpretations

NightHawk offers preliminary interpretations 24 hours a day, 365 days a

year. Key benefits of this service include NightHawk's affiliated staff

of outstanding U.S. Board Certified radiologists to cover the growing

need for off-hours coverage. Many of these doctors have had fellowship

training in various sub-specialties and are experts in emergency

radiology care. These services help radiology groups improve their

ability to recruit radiologists, increase overall group productivity

and performance, and free up scarce radiologist resources for better

patient care and new business opportunities.

-- Final Interpretations

As the nation's leading provider of off-hour preliminary reads,

NightHawk can also assist with daytime final interpretations. NightHawk

offers final interpretations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year for

overflow, vacation, illness, locums and retirement coverage. Its

streamlined privileging and credentialing process and ability to

rapidly interface with information systems afford NightHawk the ability

to respond quickly to a radiology group's evolving needs. Partnering

with NightHawk also means partnering with our affiliated,

fellowship-trained radiologists, so radiology groups can seek help for

challenging sub-specialty reads. NightHawk's sub-specialties include

Neuroradiology, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Thoracic Radiology, Nuclear

Medicine, Abdominal Imaging, Cardiac Angiography (CTA), Pediatrics,

Vascular, and MRI.

-- 3D Reconstruction

More than 2 million cardiac procedures are performed every year,

including nuclear medicine cardiac stress studies and invasive

diagnostic coronary angiograms. Over time, non-invasive Cardiac CTA

scans will likely replace a significant number of these invasive

procedures, and NightHawk now offers 24-hour coverage for 3D

Reconstruction services and professional interpretive services, in the

form of either preliminary or final reads.

NightHawk's highly-trained 3D technologists bring their imaging and

cardiac CT experience to all NightHawk customers, complementing the

development of their in-house cardiac CT programs. Additionally,

NightHawk technologists work closely with our ACR and ACC Level II

certified physicians to ensure continuity of service.

-- NightHawk Business Services

The newest NightHawk division provides cost savings to radiology

practices looking to improve their services and grow their businesses.

Specifically, NightHawk Business Services provides radiology group

customers with revenue cycle management, facilities and human resources

management, transcription, finance, and other services required to

effectively operate a radiology practice. The combination of these

business services with NightHawk's professional services and clinical

workflow technology provide a powerful advantage for physician

partners, while enhancing patient care.

-- TALON(TM): Clinical Workflow System

NightHawk's workflow technology solution features intelligent image

distribution that routes images to, and creates work lists for, the

appropriate radiologist by leveraging the speed and power of the

internet in a highly secure fashion. Designed by radiologists, for

radiologists, the 100% paperless system can quickly and easily

integrate into an existing practice, tying multiple sites and systems

together, eliminating administrative tasks and enabling radiologists to

significantly improve their efficiency and load-balancing.
