American Imaging Management Launches Patient Safety Program to Increase Awareness of Radiation Dose

Deerfield, IL – February 21, 2008 – American Imaging Management (AIM), an operating subsidiary of WellPoint, Inc. (NYSE: WLP), and a leading radiology benefit management and technology company with health plan clients representing over 20 million consumers, has introduced an enhanced Patient Safety Program to increase awareness of radiation dose associated with advanced imaging procedures, such as Computerized tomography (CT) scans and Positron emission tomography (PET) scans. AIM's new program is targeted toward increasing awareness among physicians and their patients of radiation dose associated with advanced imaging and promoting the most effective use of these procedures.

AIM is launching a new interactive radiation awareness tool on its Web site (www.americanimaging.net/safety) that allows users to select imaging procedures and obtain information on the use of a specific procedure and the amount of radiation associated with that procedure. AIM will also be introducing an educational campaign with physicians to raise awareness of radiation issues related to imaging in order to promote more informed decision making between physicians and their patients across the country.
