(DR) equipment market, today reported financial results for the first quarter
ended March 31, 2009.

    First Quarter 2009 Highlights

    -   Cash and cash equivalents decreased by $0.6 million during the
        quarter to $0.5 million at March 31, 2009 from $1.1 million at
        December 31, 2008;

    -   Sales and marketing, general and administrative, production and
        manufacturing and research and development expenses were all down by
        51.5 percent to $1,898,435 from $3,913,078 during the quarter
        compared to the same quarter last year;

    -   Purchase orders received during the first quarter and opening backlog
        totaled $3.6 million ($2.6 million shipped and recognized, $1.0
        million booked to closing backlog);

    -   Reduced receivables by $2.0 million compared to December 31, 2008 on
        the collection of $4.5 million during the quarter; Days Sales
        Outstanding (DSO) for the quarter was 137 days, the lowest in the
        last twelve quarters;

    -   Reduced inventory by $0.4 million compared to December 31, 2008;

    -   Reduced payables and accruals by $1.5 million compared to December 31

    -   Reduced total expenses by 52.0 percent to $2.2 million from $4.6
        million during the quarter compared to the same quarter last year;

    -   Gross revenues were lower by 58.8 percent compared to the same
        quarter last year; which was largely due to the decline in revenues
        in United States ("US") as a result of the slowing economic
        conditions; and

    -   Gross margins were 25.9 percent for the quarter which were also
        impacted due to lower margin sales during the quarter, the global
        pricing pressures on digital radiography products and the continued
        utilization of inventory that was purchased during previous quarters.

    Net loss was $1,513,593 or $0.02 of basic and diluted loss per share for
the quarter ended March 31, 2009 compared to a loss of $2,458,523 or $0.04 of
basic and diluted loss per share for the preceding comparative quarter.
    Commenting on the first quarter 2009 results, Tom Boon, IDC's President &
CEO said, "I am pleased with our first quarter successes in the Asia Pacific
and Latin America regions as it is reflective of our strategic positioning to
grow our OEM business while aligning with selected distributors for the
systems business. We have clearly demonstrated our ability to reduce and
manage expenses, which are in line with expectations for the first quarter.
The continued overall improvement in the Balance Sheet and effective
management of working capital provides good evidence that our build to
forecast business model, rigorous order management criteria and the empowered
IDC employees can effectively manage IDC's global business."
    Boon continued, "The careful strategic realignment of the business that
includes reducing cash burn and managing working capital, the continued
improvement in the performance of our proprietary CCD digital detector
technology, growth of the OEM detector head business and refocusing on sales
of the systems business with capable regional distributors is providing the
desired results. With a promising sales funnel, the focus for the remainder of
2009 will be to grow sales in each of the geographic regions that will enable
IDC to increase shareholder value and to meet our corporate objectives for
Profitable Growth and Industry Leadership."
    IDC will be holding its annual general meeting (AGM) on Tuesday, May 12,
2009 at 4:00 MST at the Executive Royal Inn and Conference Centre in Calgary,
Alberta, Canada and invites all shareholders to attend. As mentioned during
