Charlotte, NC (January 24, 2001) - LEAD Technologies, Inc., a worldwide leading provider of imaging developer toolkits, is pleased to announce the formation of Medicor Imaging, a new strategic business unit. Medicor Imaging's scope of products and services will revolve around the medical community's migration towards the utilization of digital images. "The creation of this new division is in response to the requests of our current clients to provide a greater degree of specialization for the medical imaging community", stated Rich Little, president of LEAD Technologies. "Currently, there is significant time and energy being spent by companies to move to a digital platform. Medicor Imaging's developer toolkits and professional services will greatly reduce the costs associated with the move".

Medicor Imaging will further develop and continue to market LEAD's existing medical products, LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging and LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging Suite. The LEADTOOLS product line is a collection of award winning developers toolkits with the medical products focusing on DICOM standards and other technologies required by the healthcare market. In addition to offering programming toolkits, Medicor Imaging will offer professional services that include; specialized training, including all aspects of DICOM, consulting and contract programming. Future product plans include DICOM utilities that will allow medical facilities better connectivity between medical imaging equipment.

The division will be headed by Gabriel Pislaru and Bruce Dennis both serving as Managing Directors. Pislaru has been LEAD Technologies' DICOM Development Project Manager and brings over 15 years of development and management experience. Speaking about the DICOM Toolkits, Pislaru states, "the medical imaging toolkits are a dream-come-true for any programmer needing DICOM support in his application for three very important reasons. First, the comprehensive implementation of the DICOM specification, combined with a very flexible approach, reliably reads more variations of DICOM files than any other application. Second, the user has full power to access the DICOM Basic Directory in the easiest possible way. Finally, the nightmare of creating a DICOM client/server application is gone, and the door is open to what was once a very exclusive community."

Dennis brings over 15 years of professional sales, management and marketing experience to the organization. Since the first of November, Dennis has been working with LEAD Technologies in a consulting role to determine the feasibility of creating a separate division to better attack this specialized market of medical imaging technology. "It is our vision to leverage LEAD's 10 years of experience in providing superior imaging toolkits to developers to make Medicor Imaging the undisputed leader in delivering imaging development products and professional services to the medical community facilitating the rapid transition into the digital imaging era", Dennis commented. Medicor Imaging will operate as a division of LEAD Technologies, and will initially be headquartered within LEAD Technologies' worldwide headquarters in Charlotte, NC.

Medicor Imaging can be reached at 704-227-2624.
