Fort Lauderdale, Fla, USA. Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc., has announced that the European Institute of Oncology (EIO) in Milan, Italy has ordered a CT Laser Mammography (CTLM(R)) system. This is the fourth sale for the company in Italy.

Studies will be performed under the auspices of Professor Umberto Veronesi, Scientific Director.

Professor Veronesi is also a member of the Institute's Research Committee, which decides the Institute's research strategy and approves research plans.

"We are extremely pleased that Professor Veronesi and his team will be using CTLM. His group has led many important studies; it is fitting that our revolutionary technology to improve the accuracy of breast cancer detection techniques and to improve case management move forward under their capable direction. We especially thank our local distributor for making this arrangement possible," stated Tim Hansen, Chief Executive Officer, Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc. "This marks our fourth sale in Italy and our sixth installation in the country — a tremendous start for our clinical and commercialization efforts."

Dr. Enrico Cassano, Director of Breast Imaging at the Institute, said, "We are pleased to have this opportunity to work with the CTLM laser breast scanner. It has been used in research and in a clinical capacity at other international sites; now, we will add our expertise to that of the facilities working with this emergent modality. We are confident that our results will confirm the capabilities of CTLM."

The European Institute of Oncology is a comprehensive cancer centre, providing diagnostic services and treatment while conducting research and participating in clinical trials. It is one of 30 institutes in Italy declared a Research Institute of Public Interest by the Italian government, a designation which reflects the strong national and international significance of the institutes to which the title is bestowed.
