September 5, 2007 - Imaging Diagnostic Systems Inc. has installed a CT Laser Mammography (CTLM) system at the Tianjin Medical University's Cancer Institute and Hospital, the largest breast disease center in China.
Research at the Cancer Institute will be led by Professor Bao Runxian, Director of Radiology. Data will be collected under three research protocols designed to improve current methods of addressing breast cancer imaging and treatment follow-up. Professor E. Milne, MD, IMDS Director of Clinical Research will train the University doctors on CTLM adjunctive image interpretation and protocol methodologies.
The Tianjin system is the second research system installed in China. The first, at Beijing's Friendship Hospital, enabled CTLM clinical procedures to become listed on the Regional schedule for patient payments. IMDS plans to install several more research CTLM systems in China to accelerate market adoption of the new laser breast imaging technique.
