27 January 2005
Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: IMDS), announced today
that it has sold a CT Laser Mammography system to its distributor Biomedical
International Snc, Rome, Italy for installation at the Hospital Civile di
Teramo, Teramo, Italy.
"The CTLM(R) system will be used in the Oncology Department. The Hospital is
known for offering the latest technologies to their patients and we believe
that laser optical mammography will be well received," commented Mr G
Luciano Perrazi, President, Biomedical International.
Tim Hansen, Imaging Diagnostic Systems CEO, stated, "This is the third
operating CTLM system in Italy but the first sale in the country. We have
another order pending. It is gratifying to see the acceptance of CT Laser
Mammography begin to take hold in Italy and we look forward to working with
our new users in providing this procedure to women in their areas."
The CTLM(R) system is the first patented breast imaging system that
utilizes state-of the-art laser technology and patented algorithms to create
3-D cross-sectional images of the breast. It is a non-invasive, painless
examination that does not expose the patient to radiation or require breast
compression. Imaging Diagnostic Systems has received CE Marking, CMDCAS
(Canada), Canadian License, China SFDA approval, UL listing, ISO 9001:2000-
13488 certification and FDA export certification for its CT Laser Breast
Imaging system. The Company is seeking PreMarket Approval (PMA) from the
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its CTLM(R) system to be used as an
adjunct to mammography.
