US Oncology Reports Third Quarter 2008 Results

of 2008. Partially offsetting these increases was a reduction in the utilization of ESAs and reduced management fees due to contractual amendments in 2007.

Compared to the second quarter of 2008, medical oncology services revenue decreased $1.9 million, or 0.3 percent, and EBITDA decreased $3.8 million, or 18.4 percent. These reductions reflect lower utilization of ESAs.

Cancer Center Services

Cancer center services revenue in the third quarter of 2008 was $92.0 million, an increase of $2.9 million, or 3.3 percent, over the third quarter of 2007 which reflects increasing radiation treatment and diagnostic scan volumes.

Third quarter cancer center services revenue decreased $0.2 million, or 0.2 percent, and EBITDA decreased $0.7 million, or 2.2 percent from the second quarter of 2008 reflecting a slight decline in radiation treatments/diagnostic scans.
