Foundation Radiology Group Named One of 50 Largest Radiology Groups in the Country

December 4, 2008

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ — Pittsburgh-based Foundation Radiology
Group (FRG) was named by the Radiology Business Journal to be one of the 50
largest radiology groups in the country. Located in Gateway Center in downtown
Pittsburgh, FRG has been growing at a brisk pace, and was pleased to get
recognized by industry leaders and national experts.

In a little over a year of being in operation, FRG was ranked 44th out of
50 nationally, proof that their business model is working. FRG’s board
certified radiologists are available 24/7/365 to provide readings in
muscularskeletal radiology, neuroradiology, mammography, cardiac CT,
interventional radiology, pediatric radiology, brain perfusion, vascular
ultrasound, OB/GYN ultrasound and general radiology. With this broad range of
capabilities, FRG is ideally positioned to provide subspecialty radiological
services to smaller hospitals and outpatient centers that can’t afford to keep
subspecialists on staff.

Timothy J. Pisula, FRG’s chief operating officer, said, “We are pleased to
have been recognized by the Business Radiology Journal. If this survey were
taken today, we would have placed in the top 30, as our practice now has over
30 FTE (full time equivalent) radiologists, exceeds over 600,000 annual
procedures sourced from 18 different institutional clients. We are looking
forward to continuing our leadership role as the radiology and diagnostic
imaging professional industry grows and evolves.”
