ROCHESTER, NEW YORK – August 4, 2007 - Lucid, Inc. ( will showcase its VivaNetTM telemedicine server for dermatology applications at the American Academy of Dermatology’s (AAD) Summer Academy Meeting, August 1-5, 2007.

The VivaNetTM server is intended to link dermatology practitioners using Lucid’s non-invasive VivaScope® confocal imagers with other dermatologists or pathologists via the Internet.

Lucid’s non-invasive VivaScope® confocal microscopes provide cellular resolution images of skin that may be used by a dermatologist to assist in forming a clinical judgment for a variety of skin conditions. The VivaNetTM is an Internet-based, DICOM compliant application that is intended to provide fast, accurate, and secure storage, retrieval and transfer of VivaScope® digital cellular resolution images across the Internet to facilitate professional collaboration and consultation.

Once all of the images from a single session are completed, the images and patient related data are transferred for storage to the secure VivaNetTM server and are immediately available for retrieval by and transfer to other authorized practitioners for their review and collaboration.
