FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: IMDS), a pioneer in laser optical breast imaging, announced today that a new study evaluating the CTLM system as an adjunct to mammography is featured in the December 2008 issue of Academic Radiology.
Alexander Poellinger, MD, a radiologist at Charite Hospital in Berlin, Germany, authored "Near-infrared Laser Computed Tomography of the Breast: A Clinical Experience" along with colleagues at Charite and Steven Ponder, Ph.D., Imaging Diagnostic Systems' Director of Advancement Development as co-author. Their work demonstrated an increase in accuracy of diagnosing malignant and benign breast lesions in patients who were examined with mammography and CTLM adjunctively compared to mammography alone.
The study also details the fundamentals of CTLM, the team's techniques and methods, and individual case studies.
Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc. has developed a revolutionary new imaging device to aid in the detection and management of breast cancer. The CTLM(R) system is a breast imaging system that utilizes patented continuous wave laser technology and computer algorithms to create 3-D images of the breast. The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and does not expose the patient to ionizing radiation or painful breast compression. CT Laser Mammography (CTLM(R)) is designed to be used in conjunction with mammography. It reveals information about blood distribution in the breast and may visualize the process of angiogenesis, which usually accompanies tumor growth. The company is currently engaged in clinical trials for the FDA Pre-market approval application submission.
The FDA has determined that the Company's clinical study is a
