NASHUA, N.H. and MALVERN, Pa., March 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- iCAD(R), Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industry-leading provider of Computer Aided Detection (CAD) solutions, and Siemens Medical Solutions, a world leader in medical imaging and information technology (IT) solutions, have announced that Siemens will offer iCAD's TotalLook system as an option for use with its MAMMOMAT(R) NovationDR full-field digital mammography system, through Siemens global sales and distribution channels. TotalLook, introduced by iCAD at the end of 2005, provides customers with a comprehensive film-to-digital solution making it easier for women's health centers to transition from film to digital mammography.

This new technology assists radiologists in comparing breast images year- to-year to detect subtle changes that may be indicative of breast cancer. Based on successful installations of iCAD systems with its customers, Siemens made the decision to offer the TotalLook system as an option for its digital mammography customers. Siemens also distributes iCAD's Second Look Digital solution for computer-aided detection of breast cancer.

TotalLook converts prior film images into a digital format for comparison with more recent images from digital mammography systems. It automatically adjusts the digitized images for correct display on Siemens' MammoReportPlus softcopy reporting workstation. By providing radiologists with a "total look" at a patient's multi-year mammograms, the solution helps detect subtle changes that may be indicative of breast cancer. In addition, it eliminates the need to shift back and forth from a light box to a digital workstation increasing workflow and improving productivity. The TotalLook solution has the capability to:

* Automatically retrieve and receive patient information from HL-7 or DICOM worklists * Digitize standard mammography films in 23 seconds * Capture the full fidelity of original film mammograms in each digitized image * Track and label records in industry-standard DICOM format * Send complete records to multiple DICOM destinations simultaneously * Display high-resolution digitized images on many DICOM workstations in any hanging protocol About Siemens Medical Solutions
