“We were pleased with the financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

In March, we released a next-generation platform for prostate and breast imaging that integrates our advanced MRI image analysis software products with Invivo’s suite of MRI product solutions for global commercial sale. This partnership aligns the commercial strategy of our MRI products similar to that of our successful mammography business.

“The strong growth in Therapy revenue demonstrates the growing adoption of the for the treatment of breast and skin cancers.

(Unaudited, in thousands, except per share amounts)

The following is a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures used by the Company to describe the Company's financial results determined in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP). An explanation of these measures is also included below under the heading "Explanation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures".

While management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful supplemental information to investors regarding the underlying performance of the Company's business operations, investors are reminded to consider these non-GAAP measures in addition to, and not as a substitute for, financial performance measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. In addition, it should be noted that these non-GAAP financial measures may be different from non-GAAP measures used by other companies, and management may utilize other measures to illustrate performance in the future. Non-GAAP measures have limitations in that they do not reflect all of the amounts associated with the Company's results of operations as determined in accordance with GAAP.

The Company reports its financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles, or U.S. GAAP (“GAAP”). However, management believes that in order to properly understand the Company's short-term and long-term financial and operational trends, investors may wish to consider the impact of certain non-cash or non-recurring items, when used as a supplement to financial performance measures in accordance with GAAP. These items result from facts and circumstances that vary in frequency and/or impact on continuing operations. Management also uses results of operations before such items to evaluate the operating performance of the Company and compare it against past periods, make operating decisions, and serve as a basis for strategic planning. These non-GAAP financial measures provide management with additional means to understand and evaluate the operating results and trends in the Company's ongoing business by eliminating certain non-cash expenses and other items that management believes might otherwise make comparisons of the Company's ongoing business with prior periods more difficult, obscure trends in ongoing operations, or reduce management's ability to make useful forecasts. Management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide additional means of evaluating period-over-period operating performance. In addition, management understands that some investors and financial analysts find this information helpful in analyzing the Company's financial and operational performance and comparing this performance to its peers and competitors.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA" as the sum of GAAP net loss before provision for income taxes, acquisition-related expenses, total other (income) expense, stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, severance, gain on sale, loss on warrant, amortization of acquired intangibles, acquisition related, patent litigation and recall costs, contingent consideration, indemnification asset and goodwill impairment charges. Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company's overall financial performance.

Management defines "Non-GAAP Adjusted Net Loss" as the sum of GAAP net loss before provision for the gain on sale of asset, severance, transaction, patent litigation and recall costs, contingent consideration, indemnification asset and goodwill impairment charges. Management considers this non-GAAP financial measure to be an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business and a good measure of its historical operating trends, in particular the extent to which ongoing operations impact the Company's overall financial performance.

Management excludes each of the items identified below from the applicable non-GAAP financial measure referenced above for the reasons set forth with respect to that excluded item:

On occasion in the future, there may be other items, such as significant asset impairments, restructuring charges or significant gains or losses from contingencies that the Company may exclude if it believes that doing so is consistent with the goal of providing useful information to investors and management.
