Marking its first entry into the North American sector, Imaging Diagnostic Systems has received Canadian market approval for its CT Laser Breast Imaging System for detecting breast cancer. The device, which uses laser technology and proprietary algorithms to create cross-sectional and 3D images of the breast, provides a non-invasive, painless examination that does not expose the patient to radiation or require breast compression, said the Fort Lauderdale, Florida firm. It is already approved for sale in Europe. The company is seeking approval from the US FDA to use the system as an adjunct to mammography.
