NEW ORLEANS -- April 18, 2013

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 positive data in
support of the Company’s Xoft^® Axxent^® Electronic Brachytherapy System^® to
treat non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) were highlighted in a poster
presentation today at the 2013 American Brachytherapy Society (ABS) Annual
Meeting being held from April 18-20, 2013 in New Orleans.

Ajay Bhatnagar, MD, MBA, Department of Radiation Oncology, School of Medicine
at the University of Pittsburgh, and Co-Director of Cancer Treatment Services
in Casa Grande, Ariz. presented clinical outcomes data on 172 patients with
247 NMSC lesions treated with high-dose-rate (HDR) electronic brachytherapy
with surface applicators, using the Xoft System. Data on earlier follow-up on
this patient cohort was published in the journal Brachytherapy in March/April

“HDR electronic brachytherapy is a convenient, non-surgical treatment option
for non-melanoma skin cancer, especially for hard to reach lesions on the tip
of the nose, eyelids and behind the ear. The data presented today demonstrate
good cosmetic results, low toxicity and, most importantly, no recurrence at
one year and more from treatment,” said Dr. Bhatnagar. “The Xoft System allows
us to drastically reduce treatment time, making it an ideal option for elderly

“We are encouraged by the data presented on the Xoft System for non-melanoma
skin cancer, as it further demonstrates the system’s effectiveness,” said Ken
Ferry, President and CEO of iCAD. “Increased evidence of improved clinical
outcomes combined with shorter treatment times and the system’s mobility are
contributing to the rapid adoption of the Xoft System.”
