RadNet was founded by six medical doctors including Dr. Howard Berger, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. At its inception, RadNet provided billing and administrative services to radiology groups in the Los Angeles area, and opened its first imaging center across from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in 1981. In 1990, Dr. Berger and Dr. Michael Krane, our Director of Utilization Management, purchased the interests of their four other partners, and became the sole owners of RadNet. In June 1992, RadNet was acquired by Primedex Health Systems, Inc., a publicly traded company that, at the time, was engaged in providing management, administrative and financial services to medical clinics focused on workers compensation claimants in the greater Los Angeles area. Beginning in late 1993, because of the change in California workers compensation laws, Primedex divested itself of its workers compensation practice and began to focus exclusively on diagnostic imaging (RadNet). In 1995, Howard Berger became the largest individual shareholder of Primedex through his purchase of shares from the then largest shareholder. Since 1994, RadNet has grown significantly through internal growth (same-store sales and the opening of de novo centers) and through consummating strategic acquisitions. Prior to the acquisition of Radiologix in 2006, RadNet's largest acquisitions to date include the purchases of Tower Imaging in 1994 and Diagnostic Imaging Systems beginning in 1996. RadNet continues to focus on growth through adding additional capabilities to its existing centers and through making strategic acquisitions.

IndustryDIAGNOSTIC IMAGING SERVICES ARE TYPICALLY PROVIDED IN ONE OF THE FOLLOWING SETTINGS:
Fixed-site, freestanding outpatient diagnostic facilities
These facilities range from single modality to multi-modality facilities and are not generally owned by hospitals or clinics. These facilities depend upon physician referrals for their patients and generally do not maintain dedicated, contractual relationships with hospitals or clinics. In fact, these facilities may compete with hospitals or clinics that have their own imaging systems to provide services to these patients. These facilities bill third-party payors such as managed care organizations, insurance companies, Medicare or Medi-Cal. Our facilities are all of this category.
Hospitals or clinics
Many hospitals provide both inpatient and outpatient diagnostic imaging services, typically on site. These inpatient and outpatient centers are owned and operated by the hospital or clinic or jointly by both and are primarily used by patients of the hospital or clinic. The hospital or clinic bills third-party payors, such as managed care organizations, insurance companies, Medicare or Medi-Cal.
Using specially designed trailers, imaging service providers transport imaging equipment and provide services to hospitals and clinics on a part-time or full-time basis, thus allowing small to mid-size hospitals and clinics that do not have the patient demand to justify an on-site setting access to advanced diagnostic imaging technology. Diagnostic imaging providers contract directly with the hospital or clinic and are typically reimbursed directly by them.
