LED Imaging Introduces New Digital Radiography Intraoral Sensor

The LED IS100 is the first intraoral sensor in the company's product portfolio

BURNABY, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- LED Imaging, a new division of LED Dental Ltd. ("LED Dental"), a wholly owned U.S. operating subsidiary of LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. ("LED Medical" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE: LMD)(OTCQX: LEDIF)(FRANKFURT: LME), today introduced its new digital radiography intraoral sensor, the LED IS100. The sensor will be available for demo and sale at the California Dental Association - South ("CDA - South") Meeting being held Thursday, May 15, through Saturday, May 17, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The LED IS100 intraoral sensor is the third product to be added to LED Imaging's portfolio since the launch of the division on April 2, 2014.

Designed with simplicity and versatility in mind, the LED IS100 intraoral sensor is a replacement for traditional dental film as it captures intraoral images of the teeth and supporting bone structures. The sensor boasts a number of product features that support practice needs, including:

--  High-definition image resolution: With greater than 20 line pairs per
    millimeter spatial resolution, the LED IS100 provides practitioners with
    the high-quality images they need to make accurate diagnoses. With
    16,384 shades of gray (14 bits), the images are crisp, clear, bright and
    contrasted.
--  Direct USB plug-in: The LED IS100 plugs directly into any computer via a
    direct USB connection, eliminating the need for an inline controller,
    dock or hub. The sensor can easily be moved from one operatory to the
    next, which is ideal for multi-chair practices.
--  Durable construction: Hermetically sealed casing ensures the intraoral
    sensor is waterproof and can easily withstand the process of
    disinfecting by submersion. Additionally, the LED IS100 includes a CMOS
    chip, fiber optics, scintillator and a shock absorption system.
--  Ergonomic design: LED Imaging's intraoral sensor is designed with both
    practitioners and patients in mind; the slim casing and rounded edges
    allow for faster, easier and more comfortable patient positioning.
--  Diagnostic flexibility: The LED IS100 is available in two sizes to suit
    diagnostic needs, such as retroalveolar, posterior, bitewing and other
    necessary images. It can be used in endodontics, periodontics,
    prosthetic surgery and implants, as well as for cavity diagnosis. Plus,
    the sensor features an automatic wake-up system, so there are fewer
    steps required for the sensor to capture an image.
--  Open-architecture workflow: The LED IS100 features an open-architecture
    design for streamlined integration with third-party software and imaging
    solutions. The intraoral sensor can be implemented into a practice
    seamlessly, further streamlining workflow.

"We're really excited about the newest addition to the LED Imaging family, the LED IS100 intraoral sensor," said Dr. Jeffrey Brooks, vice president of imaging for LED Imaging. "Digital radiography has been a game changer in dental practices because of the time and cost savings for all involved, so we wanted to give dental practitioners a product that would provide excellent quality day in and day out."

Also at the CDA - South Meeting, LED Imaging will have the RAYSCAN alpha - Expert digital imaging system and LED Imaging Software available for demo and sale. The RAYSCAN alpha - Expert, developed by Ray Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Samsung, was launched on April 3, 2014, as LED Imaging's premier digital imaging product. The unit offers 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), panoramic and cephalometric imaging capabilities to quickly capture high-quality, 16-bit DICOM images at a low radiation dose.

LED Imaging Software was first introduced at the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Annual Session in late April 2014. The software captures, enhances and displays dental images from a variety of digital products, including digital imaging systems, such as digital radiography intraoral sensors, intraoral cameras and extraoral cameras. While the RAYSCAN alpha - Expert and LED IS100 work seamlessly with LED Imaging Software, the software is designed with true open-architecture, allowing integration with any practice management system and compatibility with imaging products from a variety of manufacturers. Additionally, the software acts as a front office tool by enabling users to duplicate films, create referral letters and treatment plans, and electronically transfer images to insurance companies and other doctors.

CDA - South Meeting attendees are encouraged to visit LED Imaging's booth number 2534, to demo the LED IS100, the RAYSCAN alpha - Expert and LED Imaging Software. To learn more about LED Imaging and the LED IS100, call 844.952.7327 or visit www.leddental.com/LED-IS100.
