Breast Density
Assessment Software Built on Artificial Intelligence


Nashua, NH – August 8, 2018 – iCAD (Nasdaq: ICAD), a global leader in medical technology providing
innovative cancer detection and therapy solutions, announced today FDA
clearance of its latest Artificial Intelligence software solution; PowerLook
Density Assessment Version 3.4. The software is compatible with iCAD’s digital
breast tomosynthesis (DBT) platform on both GE and Hologic systems, enhancing
the Company’s comprehensive suite of breast health solutions available in a
single platform.


“At iCAD, we continually strive to provide radiologists with the
most advanced, accurate and efficient software solutions designed for the early
detection of breast cancer,” said Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD.  “Breast density plays a critical role in both
risk assessment and accuracy, as mammography
sensitivity is reduced to approximately 48 percent from an average of 98
percent in those women with dense breasts.  Our cutting-edge technology rapidly produces
consistent breast density results while reducing the risk of reader
variability, enabling radiologists to more easily identify women who might
benefit from additional screening.”


According to a recent study published in the Annals of
Internal Medicine, between 40-50percent of
women in the United States are considered to
have dense breasts, which can increase tumor aggressiveness, as well as mask
the presence of tumors in a mammogram.


iCAD’s PowerLook Density
Assessment 3.4 delivers automated, rapid and reproducible assessments of breast
density to help identify patients that may experience reduced sensitivity to
digital mammography due to dense breast tissue. This innovative technique,
based on machine learning, calibrates the patient’s breast density to the
appropriate category corresponding to the American College of Radiology’s
Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) reporting system. 


implementing PowerLook Density Assessment, our radiologists have been able to
provide more consistent breast density results for our patients during
screenings.  We must consider many
aspects of each patient’s case at once, but PowerLook Density Assessment allows
us to focus on our primary goal of finding breast cancer.  Density matters and we believe the greater
accuracy of assessment with iCAD’s PowerLook Density Assessment will result in
greater patient satisfaction and improve patient care,” stated Dr.
