Reading Workflow

GREENVILLE, S.C., Nov. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eRAD, a division of
RadNet, Inc. (Nasdaq:RDNT), announced today that Radiology Medical

RMC's radiologists provide diagnostic reading services for multiple imaging
providers, each utilizing a unique PACS system or, in some cases, mobile
imaging modalities. RMC chose eRAD's uniRAD consolidated workflow management
for its ability to aggregate studies from multiple disparate sites into a
single worklist which can be accessed via eRAD's cloud. All reading, dictation
and transcription, is performed using one integrated product which is easily
accessible via the Internet.

"Prior to using eRAD, we had a highly manual (and messy) process for
aggregating the clinical documentation and images and then dictating,
transcribing, editing, signing and distributing reports," said Rick
Chesbrough, M.D., President and CEO of RMC."We have seen our efficiency go up
by an order of magnitude now that we are using eRAD, and it was easy to
deploy, given they provide all of the IT infrastructure when utilizing the
cloud.It's a lot like subscribing to a cell phone plan," added Dr.
Chesbrough.

"More and more we are seeing radiologists purchase their own systems to
aggregate and manage data into a single system for reading.Gone are the days
when a radiologist can afford to log onto to several disparate systems in a
day to do their work.The efficiency just isn't there in this age of declining
reimbursement," according to Seth Koeppel, SVP Sales at eRAD."The eRAD
solution can handle multiple vendor inputs even as it reduces IT complexity."
