Introduces Comprehensive Solution for the Xoft System for Busy Clinical Practices
NASHUA, N.H. and SAN FRANCISCO, C.A. (Booth # 5151) (March 20, 2015) – 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 researchers will present three E- posters highlighting results of up to four years of follow up with the Xoft Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx®) System® in the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) at The American Academy of Dermatology 73rd Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California. The Xoft System’s suite of products and services for clinical practices will also be showcased at the Xoft booth (#5151) throughout the meeting from March 20-24.
“This clinical data includes positive safety, efficacy and cosmetic results from patients treated in the longest-running NMSC clinical trial of the Xoft System to date,” said Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD. “Collectively, 848 patients are being followed in the three studies evaluating the Xoft System’s effectiveness for the treatment of non-melanoma skin cancer. As more long-term data from these studies become available, we believe it will drive increased adoption by physicians and greater interest from patients in this unique non-surgical treatment option. We are also pleased to showcase our new comprehensive solution at the AAD meeting, which is lowering the technological and logistical barriers for customers, helping more physicians adopt the Xoft System in their practices.”
The E-posters will be presented at the meeting in the Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer section at Center E- Poster Presentation Center 1 and will be available to view online at www.aad.org on Friday, March 20, 2015.

About Xoft Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System
The Xoft System is an isotope-free radiation treatment cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and CE marked in the EU for use anywhere in the body, including for the 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. Xoft is a wholly owned subsidiary of iCAD, Inc.
