Agreement Positions Both Companies
for Growth; Leading-edge AI Technology to be Installed Across Largest
Independent Provider of Mammography and Breast Health Services’ Network


NASHUA, NH and DALLAS, TX – December 10, 2020
–  iCAD,
a global medical technology leader providing innovative cancer detection and
therapy solutions, and SolisMammography, the
largest independent provider of mammography and breast health services in the
United States, today announced a five-year partnership whereby iCAD will
provide Solis Mammography’s nationwide network with its latest artificial
intelligence (AI) breast health solutions, including ProFound AI® for DBT and
ProFound AI Risk, the first and only clinical
decision support tool to provide an accurate two-year breast cancer risk
estimation based on a screening mammogram.


“After a thorough
evaluation of all available AI solutions, we have chosen iCAD’s ProFound AI platform
as our sole breast health AI solution to integrate with our Hologic 3D
mammography systems throughout our entire network,” said Grant Davies, President
and Chief Executive Officer of Solis Mammography. “ProFound AI will further enhance
patient care and outcomes for the over one million women we serve while also
supporting our continued growth and expansion.”


AI for DBT
is a high-performing workflow solution
trained with the latest in deep-learning AI capabilities. It assists
radiologists by rapidly
and accurately analyzing each individual DBT image to identify potentially
malignant lesions. The ProFound AI platform powered by Panorama is compatible with all leading mammography systems and
allows for seamless integration with major PACS for decision support
capabilities across large networks.


partnership with Solis underscores our ongoing commitment to improving women’s
health and we are thrilled that even more women across the United States will
benefit from our revolutionary technology that is helping to improve lives,” said
Michael Klein, Chairman and CEO of iCAD. “ProFound AI powered by Panorama offers unparalleled benefits
to patients and radiologists alike, including a clinically proven improvement
in sensitivity and specificity, which dramatically improves reading accuracy
for mammograms and reduces the rate of false positives. Likewise, with the
addition of our recently introduced ProFound AI Risk offering, we believe we
will move mammography from what is today an age-based screening paradigm to a
risk-adjusted precision screening paradigm that is personalized for every


In September 2020, compelling
research published in the peer-reviewed journal, Radiology concluded that the ProFound AI
model is effective in
identifying women at a high likelihood of being diagnosed with breast cancer
within two years of a negative screening mammogram and in possible need of
supplemental screening.


reinvented the mammography experience with a compassionate,
patient-focused approach,” said Alexander Sardiña, MD, Chief Medical Officer at
Solis Mammography. “We ensure that all of our facilities are equipped with the latest,
state-of-the-art screening and diagnostic technologies designed to improve the
patient experience and offer women peace of mind. The recent adoption of
ProFound AI for DBT throughout our network will allow our radiologists to
quickly and accurately evaluate their patients’ 3D mammography images and aid
in the identification of suspicious lesions earlier. In addition, the ability
to provide a short-term, two-year breast cancer risk assessment will
significantly enhance clinical decision making and further complement the armamentarium
of breast cancer diagnostic and therapeutic tools available at Solis


ProFound AI for DBT is
proven to curtail workflow challenges substantially by reducing radiologists’
reading time by 52.7%, thereby reducing by half the amount of
time it takes radiologists to read 3D mammography datasets. Additionally, the
platform improved radiologists’ performance measured by Area Under the Curve
(AUC) by nearly 6% and reduced unnecessary patient recall rates by more than
