CT Laser Mammography Technology Featured at Largest EU Radiology CongressFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., March 6 (HSMN NewsFeed) -- Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: IMDS ) a pioneer in laser optical breast imaging systems, will exhibit new CT Laser Mammography (CTLM®) clinical cases at the annual European Congress of Radiology (ECR 2007), March 9-13, in Vienna, Austria. IDSI will be located at Expo A #115.
"We are pleased to present many impressive clinical case posters from some of our clinical sites, commented Deborah O'Brien, IDSI's Senior Vice President. "The posters compare CTLM with conventional mammography, ultrasound, and MR. One of our featured posters, a work-in-progress from Catholic University in Rome, Italy, compares CTLM to MR for detecting remaining angiogenesis after neoadjuvant therapy. The MR studies were negative after treatment, but CTLM remained positive. Biopsy confirmed that cancer was still present, suggesting that CTLM may be more sensitive than MR for treatment monitoring. These results reveal exciting possible future applications for CTLM technology."
One of the largest medical meetings in Europe and the second-largest radiology meeting in the world, ECR 2007 will attract approximately 16,000 participants.
The CTLM® system is a new continuous wave laser breast imaging system that utilizes state-of-the-art technology and patented algorithms to create 3- D images of the breast. The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and does not expose the patient to radiation or require breast compression. In the United States, Imaging Diagnostic Systems is seeking FDA Premarket Approval (PMA) for the computed tomography Laser Mammography (CTLM®) system to be used as an adjunct to mammography. The FDA has determined that the Company's clinical investigation is a non-significant risk (NSR) investigational device study because it does not meet the definition of a significant risk (SR) device under 812.3(m) of the investigational device exemptions (IDE) regulation (21 CFR 812). The CTLM system is limited by United States Federal Law to investigational use only in the United States. The Imaging Diagnostic Systems CTLM system has received other registrations including CE, CMDCAS Canadian License, China SFDA, UL, ISO 9001:2000, ISO 13485:2003 and FDA export certification.
