Imaging Diagnostic Systems (IDSI) of Plantation, FL, will showthe latest work on its Computed Tomography Laser Mammography (CTLM)system. The system uses near-infrared lasers to obtain slice-basedmammography data that can be manipulated like other 3-D data sets.

At the 1994 RSNA show, the company showed the first images ithad acquired with the technique (SCAN 11/9/94). Since then, IDSIhas improved the system's optics, mechanics and imaging software.By the end of the year, the company plans to install a second-generationprototype system in Strax Clinic in Fort Lauderdale for continuedclinical evaluation.

The company's goal is to demonstrate that CTLM can produce diagnosticallyrelevant images that are comparable to x-ray mammography. It willsoon be filing an application with the Food and Drug Administrationfor a clinical protocol to test its technology, according to CEORichard Grable. IDSI hopes to establish six beta sites in 1996.
