Date:9/13/2012

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Sept. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Caliber Imaging & Diagnostics, formerly Lucid, Inc. (OTCBB: LCDX), today announced that its VivaScope System using RCM technology was the subject of a recent report on a clinical study of more than 700 consecutive clinically equivocal cases. The research, reported in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology in July, found that for basal cell carcinoma (BCC), which is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the world, using images captured with the VivaScope System achieved a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 88.5% (Guitera, 2012). The authors of the study further reported that the VivaScope System can "be used, in particular, to obtain quasi-histological diagnosis for BCCs and to follow efficacy of treatment."

In addition to studying BCC, the authors of this study found that the VivaScope System can reduce unnecessary surgical biopsies of benign lesions by as much as 68%. In this particular study, the physicians utilizing the VivaScope System yielded a sensitivity of 87.6% and a specificity of 70.8% for melanoma. The clinical model in the study yielded a sensitivity of 91.5% when considering all skin cancers (basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma).

The authors reported that, "the analysis of the cases in this study and the development of the RCM model for clinical diagnosis are based on the real clinical scenario faced by the dermatologist in the clinic where melanocytic and non-melanocytic lesions are mixed and only difficult cases are biopsied." The authors also confirmed that more accurate clinical diagnosis of skin tumors through the use of the Caliber ID VivaScope System is likely to improve patient management, reduce morbidity and mortality, and generate considerable economic benefits.

"Our VivaScope System allows physicians to rapidly and accurately detect and diagnose the most common cancer to affect mankind. This ability i
