This amended proxy material is being filed solely for the purpose of correcting the proxy card for the 2004 annual meeting of stockholders of AngioDynamics, Inc. (the Company). The proxy card filed with the Companys definitive proxy statement on September 27, 2004, inadvertently listed Proposal 2 (to approve the AngioDynamics, Inc. Employee Stock Purchase Plan) and Proposal 3 (to ratify the appointment of Grant Thornton LLP as independent auditor for the fiscal year ending May 28, 2004) in the incorrect order. The correct proxy card and an explanatory letter to stockholders, which are being filed herewith, are being mailed on or about September 30, 2004 to the Companys stockholders of record for the meeting. No other changes have been made to the proxy materials filed on September 27, 2004.
On or about September 27, 2004, we mailed a Notice of Annual Meeting of Stockholders, Proxy Statement and form of proxy to our stockholders of record on September 23, 2004, regarding our upcoming Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on October 18, 2004. It has come to our attention that due to an administrative error you received a form of proxy (white) listing Proposal 2 (to approve the AngioDynamics Employee Stock Purchase Plan) and Proposal 3 (to ratify the appointment of Grant Thornton LLP as independent auditor for the fiscal year ending May 28, 2005) in the incorrect order. To correct this oversight, we have enclosed a new form of proxy (blue) for your execution that supersedes and replaces the one previously delivered to you. We would ask, however, that you continue to refer to the previously delivered Proxy Statement regarding matters to be voted upon at the meeting.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FORM OF PROXY (WHITE) PREVIOUSLY DELIVERED WITH YOUR PROXY MATERIALS IS NOW INVALID FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS AND WILL BE DISREGARDED. PLEASE EXECUTE AND RETURN THE NEW FORM OF PROXY (BLUE) ENCLOSED WITH THIS LETTER.
The Annual Meeting of Stockholders will be held at 9:00 p.m., local time, on Monday, October 18, 2004, at the Logan Airport Hilton, Boston, Massachusetts. Whether or not you can be present at the meeting in person, please promptly vote your shares by marking, signing, dating and mailing the enclosed proxy card in the postage-paid envelope to ensure that your vote is counted.

Chief Financial Officer
