Ovidius T. Lebada, CEO of the Lebada USA, Inc., states, "The recent shipment to Euromedica Hospital is just one of several CTLM® systems planned for the Romanian market. The CTLM®'s revolutionary technology offers 3D laser imaging of the breast with no harmful radiation, no compression, and no injected contrast agents. The CTLM® system is expected to be warmly received by the Romanian health care system. Women in Romania will soon have a new diagnostic tool to provide more information to aide in early detection of breast cancer. Through this and future installations, we look forward to assisting the imaging needs of women in Romania and hopefully other areas in Europe."
