DPR, a technology company that delivers intelligent imaging

informatics solutions for the radiology industry, today announced a

new partnership agreement with ClearCanvas Inc., of Toronto, Ontario,

an innovative medical imaging informatics company. The companies will

work together on joint marketing and sales efforts to further

distribute their combined solutions.

DPR develops and sells CaseReader?, an innovative structured reporting

solution for medical imaging professionals. The company's software

automatically populates measurements, images, and other relevant

information into a report based on key diagnostic activities performed

by a Radiologist. The workflow associated with the application is

designed to speed up the reporting process, helping healthcare

professionals to process vast amounts of medical imaging data at a

faster pace. Numerous studies indicate that increased use of medical

imaging as well as widespread adoption of modalities such as Computed

Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, which can generate 300

images per exam, place significant productivity restraints on


ClearCanvas develops and markets Diagnostic Workstations, Picture

Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS), and Radiology Information

Systems (RIS) allowing medical imaging clinics to work with digital

images. ClearCanvas' solutions deliver a flexible workflow that

includes capabilities to capture, distribute, review, report, and

archive digital images and associated information. The company's

products provide Radiologists, Clinicians, and Technologists with a

variety of advanced diagnostic tools while simplifying system

management for IT Administrators. Clinical Editions of the company's

products have received regulatory clearance from the US FDA and Health

Canada, and European CE Mark is expected by the end of June.

ClearCanvas is also well known for providing open-source software

platforms that are used by medical researchers and OEM companies to

accelerate development timelines and reduce costs.

CaseReader? comes embedded with M*Modal Speech Understanding

technology for both navigation and dictation purposes. This capability

allows healthcare professionals to systematically navigate through

patient studies using voice-driven commands. Direct access to case

templates and CPT codes in the application help to ensure that

reimbursements are maximized for reported exams. With a wide variety

of reporting tools, the application looks to drastically reduce the

potential for errors, lower costs and, while working in collaboration

with the referring physician, save patients' lives. CaseReader? can be

deployed on either a PACS server or in the Cloud.

ClearCanvas' solutions are currently distributed by over 50 resellers

around the world, downloaded by more than 20,000 users, and installed

in over 175 countries. The company's affordably priced software is

deployed and used at world class client sites including the University

Health Network (UHN), Mount Sinai Hospital, Women's College Hospital,

University of Pennsylvania Medical Center, Emory University, and Johns

Hopkins, amongst others.

The companies have previously worked together to tightly integrate

their software into a unified solution. The first CaseReader

installation will be a ClearCanvas site which is expected to become

operational in July. "We are excited to be expanding our relationship

with ClearCanvas," said Steve Douglas, President and CEO of DPR. "An

integrated ClearCanvas and DPR solution will deliver dramatic

radiology post processing analysis and reporting results. Delivering

these important technology efficiencies to both new and established

ClearCanvas customers will create exceptional value and growth for

both companies."

"We are excited by this new opportunity to work further with Steve and

his team at DPR," said Norman Young, President and CEO of ClearCanvas.

"CaseReader is a very powerful solution which provides numerous

benefits over other structured reporting solutions currently on the

market, expediting the reporting process while reducing the potential

for clerical errors. I think that a number of our customers and

resellers will be very interested in DPR's technology."
