Mahwah, NJ, May 14, 2004 - Phillip C. Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of DOBI Medical International, Inc. (OTCBB: DBMI) and Angelo Secci, MD, Vice President, Clinical Research, will present an overview of their new optical breast imaging technology at the SMi Angiogenesis Conference at the Hatton Conference Center in London, England. Mr. Thomas and Dr. Secci will be presenting at 11:20 a.m. local time on May 17.

Mr. Thomas will introduce DOBI Medical International, a medical imaging company developing a new methodology for the improved diagnosis of cancer through the identification of angiogenesis – the excess vascularization often associated with tumors. He will also give an overview of the Company’s ComfortScan™ system, which is designed as a non-invasive, optical breast imaging device, to assist in the detection of breast cancer.

Dr. Secci, a clinical scientist and physician with an in-depth background in medical imaging and clinical research will review the external pressure stimulus hypothesis which shows the differential rate of re-engorgement of blood in normal breast tissue compared with that in which angiogenesis is present. In addition, he will discuss the physiological basis for the interpretation of ComfortScan images, as well as the optical operating components of the system and several case studies depicting the utility of the ComfortScan system’s images in detecting whether or not suspicious breast lesions were malignant.

DOBI Medical has completed 4 of 5 modules of its premarket application process for final FDA acceptance of its ComfortScan™ system. The Company currently expects to submit its fifth and final PMA module to the FDA in the second half of 2005. The ComfortScan system is currently investigational and not yet for sale in the United States. International sales of the ComfortScan system are expected to commence in Q4 of this year. Earlier this month, DOBI Medical announced that it had received renewal of its CE Mark Certification that will allow the shipment of its ComfortScan system to European Union Countries and other countries where the CE Mark certification is recognized.

About DOBI Medical International, Inc.
DOBI Medical is a development stage medical imaging company working to create a new means for the improved diagnosis of cancer through the detection of abnormal vascularization ("angiogenesis") associated with tumors. DOBI Medical’s first application of the technology is the ComfortScan system, a non-invasive, non-ionizing, and pain-free dynamic optical imaging system designed to assist physicians in the detection and management of breast cancer. The ComfortScan system is intended to achieve this by providing new, physiology-based imagery of abnormal vascularization in the breast that are not readily available today.
