"We are very pleased to have been issued this patent in China and to extend our protection in another important market," stated Tim Hansen, IMDS Chief Executive Officer. "With this patent comes additional hope that breast cancer may someday be imaged and treated with light-activated compounds. Our current proprietary CT Laser Mammography System (CTLM(R)) is uniquely capable in these applications."

The Chinese patent, ZL 99 8 16608.1, joins the Australian patent 775069, issued July 2004; European patent EP01181511, issued June 2005; Hong Kong patent HK1043480, issued January 2006; and German patent DE69925869 issued May 2006. The patents, along with a previously issued Canadian patent, are equivalents of US patent 5,952,644. They protect the concept of imaging and activating a photodynamic therapy agent in an optical CT scanner, a combined diagnostic and therapeutic system.

This is the second patent issued to IMDS in China.

About Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc.

Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc. has developed a revolutionary new imaging device to aid in the detection and management of breast cancer. The CTLM(R) system is a breast imaging system that utilizes patented continuous wave laser technology and computer algorithms to create 3-D images of the breast. The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and does not expose the patient to ionizing radiation or painful breast compression. CT Laser Mammography (CTLM(R)) is designed to be used in conjunction with mammography. It reveals information about blood distribution in the breast and may visualize the process of angiogenesis, which usually accompanies tumor growth.

Imaging Diagnostic Systems is currently collecting data from clinical sites for the future filing of an FDA Premarket Approval (PMA) for the Computed Tomography Laser Mammography (CTLM(R)) system to be used as an adjunct to mammography. The FDA has determined that the Company's clinical study is a non-significant risk (NSR) investigational device study under 812.3(m) of the investigational device exemptions (IDE) regulation (21 CFR 812). The CTLM system is limited by United States Federal Law to investigational use only in the United States. The CTLM system has received other registrations including CE, CMDCAS Canadian License, China SFDA, UL, ISO 9001:2000, ISO 13485:2003 and FDA export certification.
