NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 16, 2003
Daxor Corporation (AMEX: DXR), the developer and manufacturer of the BVA-100 Blood Volume Analyzer, today announced that it has received a signed agreement with Washington Hospital Center for a BVA-100 Blood Volume Analyzer.
Washington Hospital Center is one of the nation's top teaching hospitals as well as the largest private teaching hospital in the District of Columbia, serving more than 200,000 patients per year.

Blood volume measurements provide important information in a wide range of medical and surgical conditions such as blood loss during surgery or trauma, congestive heart failure, hypertension, syncope (sudden loss of consciousness), kidney failure and anemia. The BVA-100 will enable physicians and other specialists to screen patients for blood volume abnormalities. Undetected low blood volume at the time of surgery, for example, may result in severe complications. Utilization of the Blood Volume Analyzer can enable physicians to determine the most appropriate therapy to optimize blood volume at the time of surgery.
