Discussion and Analysis
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Ernest A. Bates, M.D., said, "2010 was a year of significant progress for AMS.  The benefits of our decision to upgrade many of our existing Gamma Knife sites to Gamma Knife® PerfexionTM specifications are becoming increasingly apparent, primarily due to Perfexion's substantially higher treatment capacity compared to the Gamma Knife.   Growth resumed in our Gamma Knife business, with the number of procedures up 8.5% and revenue up 5.2% in the second half of 2010 versus prior year.  We are optimistic that these trends will continue.

"Over the next few weeks we expect to announce several new Gamma Knife and Perfexion contracts that will add significantly to our revenue base beginning in 2011.  This is in addition to the continued positive impact of the Perfexion upgrades that already went into service at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven in the second quarter of 2010 and at Methodist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas in the third quarter, and the launch of patient treatments at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center in Knoxville, Tennessee, our ninth Perfexion site, in January 2011.  We also anticipate that our Gamma Knife unit at Hospital Central FAP in Lima, Peru will begin treating patients later this year, and our linear accelerator site in São Paulo is scheduled to go on-line in 2012.   And we continue to negotiate additional Gamma Knife and Perfexion contracts in the United States, South America and Europe.

Dr. Bates continued, "In our proton therapy business, we are developing centers in Dayton, Ohio, Boston, Orlando, and Long Beach, California, and are pursuing many other opportunities.  We also are well along in arranging the financing required to move these projects forward.
