Enhanced x-ray
source technology and full suite of Xoft eBx applicators to be showcased, including
those for emerging applications in prostate, brain, and rectal cancers


NASHUA, N.H. and CHICAGO – September 16, 2019 – iCAD, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICAD), a global medical
technology leader providing innovative cancer detection and therapy solutions,
today announced the Company will showcase its latest advancements for the Xoft®
Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx®) System®, including new and updated
x-ray sources and the full suite of applicators for existing and emerging
applications in the Xoft exhibition booth (#4205) at the American Society for
Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Annual Meeting in Chicago at McCormick Place West from
September 15-18, 2019. iCAD will also be concurrently exhibiting at the Society
for Radiation Oncology Administrators (SROA) Annual Meeting at the Hilton
Chicago from September 15-18, 2019.


“The Xoft System is a transformative radiation
treatment option that offers a targeted, single-fraction therapy for early-stage
breast cancer, along with the added versatility and cross-functionality to
treat other types of cancers, such as nonmelanoma skin cancers and
gynecological cancers,” according to Gary Proulx, MD, medical director
and radiation oncologist at Exeter Hospital and featured expert speaker at
iCAD’s “Evening of eBx” event scheduled to take place during the meeting. “As cancer treatment becomes increasingly
targeted and value-based, iCAD’s Xoft System continues to be an established
trailblazer in this revolutionary trend towards more personalized cancer


experts will be available in the Xoft booth throughout ASTRO and SROA to
discuss their clinical experience using the technology across various cancer
types. The Xoft System will be available for demonstration in the booth at
ASTRO and new and updated advancements will be unveiled, including those
highlighted below:

  • New applicators for minimally-invasive robotic
    surgery, including prostate, as well as an advanced prototype for early-stage
    rectal cancers
  • Extended-length balloon applicators, now
    available in 25 mm and 50 mm lengths, which offer added versatility and the
    potential for additional applications for Xoft eBx in different areas of the
  • Extended-life x-ray sources, featuring a
    ten-fold increase in treatment times, which offer time-saving benefits for
    clinicians and enhance efficiency
  • The full suite of currently-available eBx applicators,
    including those with established data for early-stage breast cancer,
    gynecological cancers, nonmelanoma skin cancers, and most recently, brain
  • World-class treatment planning programs, developed
    for both the Xoft controller and general intraoperative radiation therapy
    (IORT) with the Xoft System

early-stage breast cancer patients, IORT with the Xoft System allows appropriately
selected patients to potentially replace six to eight weeks of post-operative
external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) with a single-fraction of radiation that
can last as little as eight minutes. It uses a
miniaturized x-ray
source to deliver one precise, concentrated dose of
radiation directly to the tumor site, while minimizing risk of damage to
healthy tissue in nearby areas of the body.


“We may be approaching a significant paradigm shift in the way
clinicians treat cancer, especially with a likely decision on the Radiation
Oncology Alternative Payment Model (RO-APM) anticipated in the months ahead,”
said Michael Klein, Chairman and CEO of iCAD. “As a single-fraction treatment
therapy for early-stage breast cancer, Xoft IORT is a viable and verified
treatment option that appears well-aligned with the core elements of the
proposed model. The Company is poised to transform patient experiences and
outcomes in the years ahead as a platform technology across multiple cancer


A growing body of evidence continues to support the Xoft System
across multiple cancer types. At ASTRO, findings from a Vanderbilt University
School of Medicine study supporting Xoft IORT for early-stage breast cancer will
be presented on Sunday, September 15 at 1:15 pm CT in the Breast Cancer Track.


iCAD will also host “An Evening of eBx” cocktail
on Monday, September 16, at the
Marriott Marquis Chicago at 6 pm CT. The event will feature clinical experts
who will discuss the latest research and emerging applications for eBx and IORT
with the Xoft System.


The Xoft System is FDA-cleared, CE marked, and
licensed in a growing number of countries for the treatment of cancer anywhere
in the body, including early-stage breast cancer, nonmelanoma skin cancer, and
gynecological cancers. For more information, please visit
