Leading the way in computer-aided detection, iCAD develops, engineers, manufactures and markets computer-aided detection products for the early detection of breast cancer and other health care related applications. Early detection of breast cancer can save lives and often permits less costly, less invasive and less disfiguring cancer treatment options than when the cancer is detected at a later stage. The company s computer-aided detection can detect 25 percent of breast cancers an average of 14 months earlier than screening mammography alone. The company is one of the only independent, integrated digitizer hardware and CAD software companies that offers computer-aided detection solutions. Headquartered in Nashua, N.H., iCAD is able to reduce costs at each step in the CAD product design, production and assembly process.
