Company will also host in-booth expert presentations and active peer-to-peer learning opportunities to review optimal strategies to improve outcomes in patient care using the Xoft System

NASHUA, NH and SAN DIEGO, CA (Booth #3139) – September 25, 2017 – iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industry-leading provider of advanced image analysis, workflow solutions and radiation therapy for the early identification and treatment of cancer, today announced that external researchers will present new clinical data supporting the use of the Xoft® Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx®) System® for the treatment of nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) and early-stage breast cancer during the 2017 American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) meeting at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA from September 24-27. iCAD will also host additional presentations and a series of peer-to-peer discussion opportunities with leading eBx experts at its booth (#3139).

“We look forward to the presentation of these compelling new clinical data by leading external researchers that significantly reinforce the benefits that the Xoft System delivers to patients and physicians in the treatment of both early-stage breast cancer and nonmelanoma skin cancer,” said Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD. “Our technology is proven to be safe and effective in appropriate patients, while offering the opportunity to treat a range of cancers using one versatile, integrated system. iCAD remains committed to providing innovative, leading-edge radiation therapies that empower physicians with full confidence to precisely and effectively treat cancer.”

In an oral presentation, Rakesh Patel, MD, radiation oncologist at Precision Cancer Specialists, will review results from a study published in the Journal of Contemporary Brachytherapy comparing the use of the Xoft System and Mohs micrographic surgery for the treatment of NMSC.

“While Mohs surgery is considered the standard of care for NMSC, Xoft skin eBx represents an important option for many patients that can target the radiation dose directly to the cancerous site in a painless, non-invasive procedure,” said Dr. Patel. “We are excited to present these data, which add to a growing body of evidence indicating that eBx offers comparable results to Mohs surgery in appropriately selected early-stage NMSC patients.”

Nicholas Flores, MD, director of radiation oncology at Arizona Dermatology, will also present data from a study of the treatment of peri-ocular NMSC using the Xoft System. From 2013 to 2016, Dr. Flores and fellow researchers treated 86 patients with basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the eyelid with Xoft skin eBx. Results showed a 99 percent local control rate at two years post-treatment and no reported cases of side effects, such as long-term vision changes, dry eye, corneal injury, or retinitis.

Alam M. Nisar Syed, medical director, radiation oncology & endocurietherapy, MemorialCare Cancer Institute, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center, will also present data on the use of intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) with the Xoft System in early-stage breast cancer patients. Dr. Syed will discuss a non-randomized, prospective, multi-center trial that involved 1,076 patients with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or invasive ductal carcinoma who met specific selection criteria and received lumpectomy followed by IORT with the Xoft System. Results showed that Xoft IORT deliver low morbidity, excellent to good cosmetic results and a low rate of high-grade adverse events and recurrences in appropriate patients.

About Xoft Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System

The Xoft System is an isotope-free radiation treatment that is FDA cleared, CE marked, and licensed in a growing number of countries for the treatment of cancer anywhere in the body, including treatment of early-stage breast cancer, gynecological cancers and non-melanoma skin cancer. It utilizes a proprietary miniaturized x-ray as the radiation source that delivers precise treatment directly to cancerous areas while sparing healthy tissue and organs. The Xoft System requires only minimal shielding and therefore does not require room redesign or construction investment. Minimal shielding also allows medical personnel to remain in the room with the patient during treatment. The mobility of the Xoft System makes it easy to treat patients at multiple locations and to easily store the system when not in use. The Axxent Hub is a cloud-based oncology collaboration software solution that enables centers to monitor treatment workflow and enhance communication between clinical specialists. Xoft is a wholly owned subsidiary of iCAD, Inc. For more information about Xoft visit, like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter at @xofticad.
