BOSTON and ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Caliber Imaging & Diagnostics (OTCQB:LCDX), formerly Lucid, Inc., was featured in two recent media reports.
On May 18, Caliber I.D. was the focus of a news segment on the ABC-TV affiliate in Boston (WCVB-TV) and an accompanying article. The segment, titled "Optical biopsy diagnoses skin cancer without surgery: New biopsy method promises no cutting, no scars," focuses on the advantages of the Company's FDA-cleared VivaScope system to perform the VivaScan™ procedure, for diagnosing skin cancer without an invasive biopsy in the majority of cases. During the segment, Dr. Daniel Mark Siegel, clinical professor of dermatology at The State University of New York Health Science Center and a member of Caliber I.D.'s Board of Directors, says, "This is a technology whose time has come… We can look at one surface of the skin and then we can work our way down through deeper layers just like doing a CAT scan of the skin."
