27 January 2005

Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: IMDS), announced today that it has sold a CT Laser Mammography system to its distributor Biomedical International Snc, Rome, Italy for installation at the Hospital Civile di Teramo, Teramo, Italy.

"The CTLM(R) system will be used in the Oncology Department. The Hospital is known for offering the latest technologies to their patients and we believe that laser optical mammography will be well received," commented Mr G Luciano Perrazi, President, Biomedical International.

Tim Hansen, Imaging Diagnostic Systems CEO, stated, "This is the third operating CTLM system in Italy but the first sale in the country. We have another order pending. It is gratifying to see the acceptance of CT Laser Mammography begin to take hold in Italy and we look forward to working with our new users in providing this procedure to women in their areas."

The CTLM(R) system is the first patented breast imaging system that utilizes state-of the-art laser technology and patented algorithms to create 3-D cross-sectional images of the breast. It is a non-invasive, painless examination that does not expose the patient to radiation or require breast compression. Imaging Diagnostic Systems has received CE Marking, CMDCAS (Canada), Canadian License, China SFDA approval, UL listing, ISO 9001:2000- 13488 certification and FDA export certification for its CT Laser Breast Imaging system. The Company is seeking PreMarket Approval (PMA) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its CTLM(R) system to be used as an adjunct to mammography.
