Date:9/13/2007

Newly Independent Radiation Oncology Company Emerges as Industry Leader

with Distinct Focus on Partnership, Innovation and Integration

VEENENDAAL, The Netherlands, Sept. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Nucletron announced today the successful management buy-out from Delft Instruments, creating an independent company fully dedicated to radiation oncology. Since its inception in 1974, Nucletron has operated several entities in the field of radiation oncology throughout the world. The consolidation of the various entities into one, focused company further establishes Nucletron in a leadership role in this rapidly changing field. Collaborative partnerships, pioneering research and development of advanced technological innovations will enable Nucletron to more effectively deliver cancer treatment solutions globally and set the company apart within the industry.

"The creation of an independent Nucletron is the result of the company's success in the past two years," said David Imperiali, chief executive officer of Nucletron. "Nucletron has a strong tradition of innovation in radiotherapy, and the breadth of our capability positions the company well to continue to make significant contributions to the treatment of cancer."

The previous company, under Delft Instruments, was created in 1994 by merging Nucletron, the global leader in brachytherapy solutions, with the Oldelft Simulix(TM) brand of radiation therapy simulation and imaging technology. Additionally, in 2003, Nucletron integrated the Helax and Theratronics treatment planning and management solutions, from MDS Nordion, into its portfolio to create Oncentra(R) MasterPlan(TM) and Oncentra(R) Information Management.

"Nucletron's ability to restructure itself, anticipate needs, and incorporate new state-of-the-art products and services into our solutions suite gives us the ability to create strong and long-lasting relationships with our customers and partners," said Jeroen Cammeraat, chief operating officer of Nucletron. "The new corporate structure gives us the flexibility and agility to continue to develop world-class solutions for our customers and partners, focused on improving patient care."

With more than 10 percent of its revenues invested in research and development, Nucletron continuously seeks improvement of its existing product range and creation of new treatment options that improve patients' quality of care through curative and palliative treatment. The company's continued efforts in R&D, both in-house and through partnerships with leading academic institutions, have resulted in a strong and unique IP base.

Headquartered in The Netherlands, Nucletron delivers customized solutions to more than 3,000 institutions in more than 120 countries, equating to global sales of euro 120 million ($160 million), with operating profit levels that rank in the upper quartile of the industry. Worldwide, Nucletron has offices in 16 countries, including a production and R&D facility in The Netherlands, R&D centers in Uppsala, Sweden and Oslo, Norway and sales, marketing, service and support operations in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

The supervisory board of Nucletron will be chaired by Rob Westerhof, who has held senior positions in Asia and in the USA for Philips Medical Systems and Philips Electronics. Commenting on the spin-off, Westerhof stated, "I am excited to join Nucletron's supervisory board. Being involved in the medical business for more than 15 years in various positions throughout the world, I trust that I can make a contribution. Nucletron represents a strong brand in the world of oncology and related areas, and there are excellent opportunities for expanding our market share. I am looking forward to working with the new management team and further strengthening Nucletron."
