About LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan
LuViva is a technologically advanced diagnostic device that scans the
cervix with light and uses spectroscopy to measure how light interacts
with the cervical tissue. Spectroscopy identifies chemical and
structural indicators of precancer that may be below the surface of the
cervix or misdiagnosed as benign. This technique is called biophotonics.
Unlike Pap, HPV tests or biopsies, LuViva does not require laboratory
analysis or a tissue sample, and is designed to provide results
immediately, which eliminates costly, painful and unnecessary testing.
LuViva is designed for use with women who have undergone initial
screening and are called back for follow up with a colposcopy
examination, which in many cases, involves taking a biopsy of the
cervix. The device is used in conjunction with the LuViva®
Cervical Guide single-use patient interface and calibration disposable.
About Guided Therapeutics
Guided Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCBB: GTHP) (OTCQB: GTHP) is developing a
rapid and painless testing platform for the early detection of disease
based on its patented biophotonic technology that utilizes light to
detect disease at the cellular level. The Company's first planned
product is the LuViva® Advanced Cervical Scan, a non-invasive
device used to detect cervical disease instantly and at the point of
care. In a multi-center clinical trial, with women at risk for cervical
disease, the technology was able to detect cervical cancer up to two
years earlier than conventional modalities, according to published
reports. Guided Therapeutics has also entered into a partnership with
Konica Minolta (News - Alert) to develop a non-invasive test for the early detection of
esophageal cancer using the technology platform. For more information,

Cervical Scan is an investigational device and is limited by federal law
