BOSTON and ROCHESTER, N.Y., Oct. 21, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Caliber Imaging & Diagnostics (OTCQB:LCDX) formerly Lucid, Inc., was featured in an article in the Boston Globe on October 14.
The article, titled "Laser imaging device makes no-cut biopsies possible," focuses on Caliber's VivaScope® devices and their success in enabling doctors to perform biopsies without cutting into skin and to determine relatively quickly if a patient has cancer. The article also briefly details VivaScope's rollout to hospitals and the Company's efforts to spur wider adoption of the devices.
Reporter Callum Borchers writes, "The result [of using VivaScope] is a high-resolution image that mimics what a pathologist would see under a microscope when examining a skin sample removed during a traditional biopsy. By studying cell structure, a doctor can determine whether a lesion is cancerous—often right away."
The article introduces a 26-year-old female patient who has undergone multiple biopsies resulting in scarring, but who has since found greater satisfaction in dermatologist visits after being introduced to VivaScope. Borchers also quotes Dr. Jane Grant-Kels, chair of the dermatology department at the University of Connecticut Health Center, who says of VivaScope, "Patients love it. Patients love any technology that will give the doc more information and avoid hurting them."
