Company presented portfolio of breast cancer
detection, density assessment and risk evaluation solutions at the competition,
focused on improving health outcomes


NASHUA, N.H., May 18, 2023 – iCAD, Inc. (NASDAQ: ICAD), a global medical
technology leader providing innovative cancer detection and therapy solutions, today
announced its Breast AI Suite is a winner of the U.S. General Services
Administration’s (GSA) “AI Healthcare Challenge” award. iCAD presented its portfolio
of breast cancer detection, density assessment and risk evaluation solutions at
the competition, focused on improving health outcomes in a range of areas,
including using AI to detect cancers earlier and improve outcomes.


“It is an honor for iCAD’s technology to be recognized as
a winnerof this challenge, as it is further testament to the unique value our
Breast AI Suite offers to both clinicians and patients. Our detection solution,
ProFound AI®, is already trusted by our government and military, as last year the
U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) determined it met the DoD’s stringent
cybersecurity prevention thresholds and granted
the technology an Authorization to Operate (ATO), allowing its use in DoD
healthcare facilities, which care for military servicemembers, retirees and
family members,” said Dana Brown, President and CEO of iCAD, Inc. “With
unrivaled accuracy, performance and speed, ProFound AI is revolutionizing breast
cancer screening and detection, leading to a better experience for both
patients and their radiologists. Our density and risk evaluation solutions
further personalize screening by providing clinicians and their patients with a
more holistic view of their breast health and individual risk of developing
breast cancer. With breast cancer affecting one in eight women during their
lifetime,[1] it
is essential for women to have access to this technology, as it is clinically
proven to improve cancer detection and reduce false positives and unnecessary
callbacks, which can be stressful for women.”


Built with the latest in deep-learning AI, ProFound AI rapidly
analyzes each 3D mammography image, detecting both malignant soft tissue
densities and calcifications with unrivaled accuracy. With up to 2x the clinical performance improvement for
radiologists compared to leading competitors, ProFound AI was clinically proven
in a large reader study to increase radiologist sensitivity by an average of
8%, increase specificity by 7%, reduce recall rate in non-cancers by 7.2%, and
slash reading time by 52.7%.[2],[3]


In a clinical study, ProFound AI® Risk for 3D Mammography
was up to 2.4 times more accurate for short-term risk assessments than
traditionally used risk models, such as Gail and Tyrer-Cuzick.[4]
ProFound AI Risk for 2D Mammography is more accurate than Tyrer-Cuzick v8 for
both short-term and long-term risk assessments.[5] In a clinical study, ProFound AI
Risk for 2D Mammography accurately identified 20% of breast cancers as high-risk,
compared to 7.1% for Tyrer-Cuzick.5 iCAD’s Density Assessment solution aids in
accurate and consistent density-based stratification and reporting and offers
the highest matching accuracy for dense and non-dense assessment on the market.[6]


The GSA launched the Applied AI Healthcare Challenge
earlier this year as a prize competition seeking diverse and practical
solutions to help federal agencies provide the highest level of medical care.
The challenge awarded four grand prizes of $25,000 each for winning prototypes,
for a combined sum of $100,000. iCAD was also featured as part of the Cancer
Focus Area at the Applied AI Healthcare Challenge Industry Day on May 2, where 10
industry vendors were selected to discuss their technologies at the event.


“For more than two decades, our innovative artificial
intelligence solutions have empowered providers and professionals to
accurately, reliably, and quickly detect cancer and improve outcomes –
optimizing every patient’s opportunity to live longer, better lives. Some of
the most prestigious academic hospitals and imaging centers around the world
trust our technology to detect cancer sooner, and with greater accuracy,” said
Ms. Brown. “We remain steadfast in our mission to create a world where cancer
can’t hide by offering the most pervasive and personalized breast AI technologies,
and we look forward to continuing to expand access to this technology and
enhancing care for more women worldwide.”
