ALLIANCE IMAGING ANNOUNCES INVESTMENT IN MRI CENTER

 ORANGE, Calif., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Alliance Imaging Inc. (NASDAQ: SCAN) today announced that it has purchased a 49.5-percent interest in the Georgia Magnetic Imaging Center located at the Medical Center of Central Georgia, a 500-bed hospital in Macon, Ga. The center operates a fully upgraded General Electric 1.5 Tesla MRI unit.
 "This purchase further expands Alliance Imaging's network of over 200 MRI sites in 26 states," said Richard N. Zehner, chairman, president and chief executive officer. "The company plans to selectively purchase additional hospital affiliated MRI centers as a result of current laws in certain states, as well as proposed federal legislation, which call for divestiture by referring physician owners."

Services are provided on both a mobile, shared-user basis as well as on a full-time basis to single customers. The company currently operates 71 MRI units and nine CT units nationwide.
