NASHUA, N.H. – 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, will feature advanced computer-aided detection (CAD) solutions for the early detection of breast and colon cancers during the 100(th) Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), in Chicago, Nov. 30 - Dec. 5. Symposia, posters, and workshops discuss the application of iCAD technologies and workflow solutions for enhanced cancer identification, breast density analysis, and tumor characterization. iCAD's 2D mammography, tomosynthesis, and Computed Tomography Colonography (CTC) CAD and workflow technologies will be featured at booth #4135 in Hall A.
"We are pleased to showcase our latest Cancer Detection technologies at the 100(th) RSNA meeting. Cancer Detection technologies have been proven to help radiologists identify cancer earlier, when there may be more treatment options available," said Ken Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. "With medical imaging's rapid evolution, iCAD continues to build its CAD offerings to ensure that radiologists have access to the most innovative solutions for optimal patient care."
iCAD will showcase the PowerLook Advanced Mammography Platform (AMP)® and VeraLook® CTC, the first FDA-cleared CAD technology for CTC. PowerLook® has grown to include several modules for breast density assessment, dose assessment and advanced analytics since it was introduced in 2012. iCAD will also be demonstrating a new tomosynthesis workflow tool, as a future product to be released.
The role of volumetric density in adjunctive imaging for women with dense breasts is the topic of numerous poster presentations and workshops. In addition, iCAD's Xoft® cervical brachytherapy for gynecological cancer, MRI imaging for the characterization of pediatric brain tumors and a cloud-based, peer-review platform and workflow solution for large oncology networks will be presented.
