Lucid Launches VivaNet(R) Telemedicine Server for Dermatology Applications

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucid, Inc. ( today announced the launch of its secure VivaNet(R) telemedicine server and network. The network is designed to transfer and manage clinical data between dermatology practitioners using Lucid's non-invasive VivaScope(R) Confocal Imagers with pathologists or other medical specialists.

Lucid's VivaScope(R) confocal imager microscopes provide non-invasive, in- vivo cellular resolution images of skin. Dermatologists can use the images to form a clinical judgment for a variety of skin conditions -- without the need to excise tissue.

The VivaNet(R) network provides fast, accurate and secure storage, retrieval, and transfer of VivaScope images across the Internet or Lucid's private network service. Its launch will make VivaScope(R) images available for review by other dermatologists and pathologists in minutes -- thus enabling rapid, real-time professional collaboration.

"With VivaNet(R), practitioners can rapidly receive a pathologic interpretation of confocal images from a VivaScope(R) session, potentially assisting physicians in arriving at a clinical judgment while a patient is still in the doctor's office," said Jay Eastman, CEO, Lucid Inc.

"Just as MRI and CT scans have largely eliminated the need for routine 'exploratory surgery', the use of the VivaNet(R) network in conjunction with VivaScope(R) confocal microscopes may one day eliminate the need for routine invasive skin biopsies," he said.

During a typical session, once VivaScope(R) images are captured, they are uploaded to the secure VivaNet(R) server, along with other patient-related data. From there, the patient image set is immediately available for retrieval by and transfer to other authorized practitioners.
The advantages of the VivaNet(R) network include:

-- Secure sharing of digital cellular resolution images among medical


-- Fast, accurate, secure information exchange to enable clinical

judgments of patient skin lesions

-- Rapid, near-real-time clinical reporting

-- Ensured HIPAA compliance, privacy, and data integrity via DICOM-

compliant, standardized medical image storage, retrieval, and transfer

The VivaNet(R) network has been launched for near term use by dermatologists, as users of the VivaScope(R) microscopes, and pathologists, as readers of VivaScope images, in the US, Europe and Australia. For more information, visit or call +1-585-239-9800.
