X-ray film digitizer and computed radiography developer Lumisys has broadened the focus of its company with the launch of AuntMinnie.com, a new Internet business unit.

In other news, the Sunnyvale, CA-based firm reported a 22% increase in revenue for its second quarter (end-June). Revenues were $5 million, compared with $4.1 million a year ago.

The company posted a net loss for the period of $3.8 million, which included a one-time, non-cash charge of $4 million related to the firm’s sale of its former Imagraph subsidiary to Foresight Imaging (PNN 7/99). Lumisys had net income of $62,000 in 1998.
