Lawrence Dentice Will Focus on Expanding Market Presence And Enhancing Customer Loyalty

TUSTIN, Calif., April 11, 2006 – Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. (TAMS) has named diagnostic imaging industry veteran, Lawrence Dentice, general manager, senior vice president and an officer of the company. Dentice has been Toshiba’s vice president, sales, since he joined the company in 2002. Former general manager, Edwin Lodgek, has left the company.

“Larry Dentice has been a critical driving force behind Toshiba’s recognition as a market leader in customer satisfaction, as reported by independent analyst organizations MD Buyline and KLAS Enterprises*, and Toshiba’s greater than 25% annual year over year growth,” said Satoshi Tsunakawa, president. “We will rely on him to develop the strategies required to build on our success in CT with our industry-leading AquilionTM multi-slice system and expand on the success of our other key modalities.”

As general manager, Dentice will lead the full-line sales, marketing, service and business operations teams as well as the ultrasound business unit. He will focus on helping the company strengthen its presence in the U.S. market, expand its market share and improve profitability.

Dentice joined Toshiba from Inphact Inc. in Nashville, a PACS information technology company, where he was vice president of sales and marketing. Prior to that, he worked for Picker/Marconi Medical Systems in Cleveland, from 1985 to 2001. As vice president of U.S. sales, he helped that company earn 13 percent year over year sales growth. Dentice also worked for GE Medical Systems from 1974 to 1985 in engineering service and sales.
