Contract with market-leading enterprise imaging provider expands
access to ProFound AI for hospitals and imaging centers across North America


NASHUA, N.H. – October 20, 2020 – iCAD, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICAD), a global
medical technology leader providing innovative cancer detection and therapy
solutions, today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with Change Healthcare (NASDAQ:
CHNG), a leading independent healthcare technology company focused on insights,
innovation and accelerating the transformation of the U.S. healthcare system.
The agreement will expand access to ProFound AI™ for more hospitals and imaging
centers across North America.


ProFound AI for Digital
Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), or 3D mammography, is a high-performing workflow
solution featuring the latest in deep-learning artificial intelligence
capabilities. Intended to be used by radiologists reviewing mammography or DBT
images, ProFound AI rapidly and accurately analyzes each individual image or
slice and identifies potentially malignant lesions. Trained with one of the
largest available 3D image datasets, it provides radiologists with crucial
information, such as Certainty of Finding lesion and Case Scores, which assists
in clinical decision-making and prioritizing caseloads.


“ProFound AI offers
unparalleled benefits to clinicians and patients alike, including clinically proven improvements in radiologists’ sensitivity and
specificity when reading 3D mammography, as well as a significant reduction in
reading time,” according to Stacey
, President of iCAD.


“Although ProFound AI is
already available throughout a growing number of leading institutions in the
U.S. and the rest of the world, we are energized by this agreement as it will
enable more clinicians and women in North America to benefit from this technology,”
continued Stevens. “Profound AI offers a unique solution during the era of
COVID-19 and beyond, as it enables radiologists to more effectively manage the
backlog of women who need to be screened this year, while also improving
reading accuracy.”


Change Healthcare collaborates
with payers and providers to apply insights,
innovation and transformation
around data and
analytics solutions and services to improve clinical decision-making, simplify
billing, collection, and payment processes, and enable a better patient


“As Change Healthcare looks to accelerate and transform enterprise imaging
with the use of AI and cloud-native solutions, we are thrilled to partner
with iCAD and offer our customers the ProFound AI platform as part of our Mammography Plus solution,” said
Tracy Byers, senior vice president and general manager, Imaging, Change
Healthcare. “We are focused on radiologist productivity and aiding them with
decision support tools that are elegantly integrated into their workflow. The
integration of iCAD solutions into our digital mammography solutions will help
improve patient outcomes by improving early cancer detection and enhancing
clinical workflow. We could not be more excited about empowering our customers
and our new partnership with iCAD.”

ProFound AI™
high-performing workflow solution for 2D and 3D mammography, or digital breast
tomosynthesis (DBT), featuring the latest in deep-learning artificial
intelligence. In 2018, ProFound AI for Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT)
became the first artificial intelligence (AI) software for DBT to be
FDA-cleared; it was also CE marked and Health Canada licensed that same year.
It offers clinically proven time-savings benefits to radiologists, including a
reduction of reading time by 52.7 percent, thereby halving the amount of time
it takes radiologists to read 3D mammography datasets. Additionally, ProFound
AI for DBT improved radiologist sensitivity by 8 percent and reduced
unnecessary patient recall rates by 7.2 percent.[i]
