ICAD Announces More Than 1,000 Early Stage Breast Cancer Patients Treated With Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) Using The Xoft System

iCAD, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), a leading provider of advanced image analysis and radiation therapy solutions for the early identification and treatment of cancer, today announced at the 31 st Annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference that more than 1,000 early stage breast cancer patients have been treated with Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT) using the Xoft® Axxent® Electronic Brachytherapy System®. With IORT, a full course of radiation therapy is delivered to the patient in the operating room immediately following lumpectomy, replacing six to eight weeks of daily traditional radiation.

“The growing adoption and utilization of the Xoft System further validates that IORT is an attractive alternative for the treatment of early stage breast cancer because of its compelling benefits to patients,” said Ken Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. “By offering IORT with the Xoft System, hospitals are able to expand their comprehensive breast care programs by providing appropriate patients with the option to complete a full dose of radiation therapy in a single treatment.”

“The Xoft System provides patients with a treatment option that helps mitigate the logistical burdens often associated with a traditional course of radiation treatment,” said Barbara Schwartzberg, M.D., Director of Breast Services, Sarah Cannon/HealthONE, Rose Medical Center. “IORT with the Xoft System delivers radiation directly into the tumor cavity while the patient is still under anesthesia, minimizing radiation exposure to surrounding healthy tissue. Because the treatment is delivered in one dose, my patients are able to maintain their quality of life and return to their jobs and families quickly.”

A post-market, prospective, multi-center, clinical trial evaluating the safety, efficacy and cosmetic outcomes associated with IORT for early-stage breast cancer with the Xoft System is currently underway at hospitals across the U.S.
