HOUSTON, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Bederra Corporation , a medical imaging and diagnostic company, announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary Lumar Imaging, Inc. has entered into a joint venture (JV) agreement with Basic Solutions, Inc. According to the JV, Basic Solutions, Inc. will offer mobile cardiac stress testing and cardiac imaging services from Lumar's diagnostic medical imaging facility in Houston, TX. Lumar Imaging provides MRI, CT, Ultrasound and Pain Management services to the greater Houston area and is located adjacent to the world famous Texas Medical Center.
"This JV creates one of the few, if any, diagnostic imaging services companies in the city of Houston that offers both fixed and mobile diagnostic imaging services. Since diagnostic imaging is often a precursor to cardiac imaging, this JV creates a synergistic marketing opportunity to substantially increase our patient referral network. Lumar's patients gain the added convenience of going to a single, familiar location to receive multiple imaging services, avoiding the hassle of scheduling and traveling to various hospitals for similar tests," said Graham Williams, CEO of Bederra Corporation. "We anticipate new business gained from this JV will add $1 to $2 million in revenues for Lumar in 2008."
Kevin Baker, President of Basic Solutions, said, "This JV provides a fixed location for our mobile diagnostic imaging services, and positions us with direct access to many of the participating doctors and clinics located in and around the Texas Medical Center. We look forward to utilizing the combined marketing strengths of our companies to achieve greater sales growth."
