Some sites have begun to collect patient data necessary to submit a Premarket Approval (PMA) application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. To date, international clinical sites have performed more than 13,000 CTLM exams, according to the company, but only U.S. data will be used for the PMA application.
The CTLM system uses patented continuous wave laser technology and computer algorithms to create 3D breast images. The system is designed to gather information about blood distribution in the breast to detect angiogenesis, which usually accompanies tumor growth, and the images can be analyzed in tandem with standard mammography, according to the company.
