Greetings and welcome to the Theragenics' First Quarter 2012 Earnings Conference Call. At this time, all participants are in a listen-only mode. A question-and-answer session will follow the formal presentation. [Operator Instructions].
It is now my pleasure to introduce, Ms. Christine Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of Theragenics. Thank you, Ms. Jacobs. You may begin.
Thank you, Claudia. Good morning and welcome to Theragenics' first quarter 2012 conference call. Those of you that join us regularly for these calls will recognize that this conference call will be in a new format, and a little longer than normal.
We met and talked to several of our shareholders this past quarter, and this new format reflects their feedback. Both Frank and I will provide a fresh approach providing both context and insight to the recently completed quarter.
We will also provide strategic positioning and additional forward-looking comments. We're going to spend less time repeating financial information that we assume that you have read or you are going to read in our earnings release that was issued this morning.
This new format is a work-in-progress, which we expect is going to evolve as we progress into 2012. So with that, let me turn it over to Frank for his comments on the first quarter.
