Mentor, OH and Nashua, NH (PRWEB) July 16, 2005
SourceOne Healthcare Technologies, Inc., one of the nationÂs leading distributors of medical imaging systems, equipment, radiographic consumable supplies, and service to healthcare providers, and iCAD, Inc., an industry-leading provider of Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) solutions for the early identification of cancer, today announced that the companies have signed an extended two-year national distribution agreement.
Under terms of the agreement, SourceOne will continue to distribute iCADÂs Second LookÂ® film-based mammography CAD systems in the United States. The Second Look systems are compatible with all digital and film-based mammography systems. Since October of 2003, SourceOne has sold iCAD as itÂs only offering in the CAD category and has shipped more than 100 Second Look systems. Together, both companies are making CAD technology more accessible to hospitals, imaging centers and womenÂs health centers nationwide.
"SourceOne has been a vital link for the distribution of iCAD Second Look systems to customers throughout the country," said Scott Parr, president and CEO of iCAD, Inc. "We are pleased to renew our partnership and look forward to working together to help women gain broader access to our proven early breast cancer detection technology."
"We are committed to providing our customers the latest technology to improve womenÂs health, such as CAD, mammography, mammography information systems, diagnostic digital and analog systems and supplies," said Jerry C. Cirino, SourceOne president and CEO. "iCADÂs Second Look CAD systems lead the industry in helping physicians battle the war against breast cancer. We are proud to be able to continue to offer our customers the number one rated CAD solution."
Repeatedly recognized as offering "The Winning Combination" of Price and Performance by MD Buyline, iCAD offers a comprehensive range of high-performance, upgradeable CAD systems for the high, mid and low volume mammography markets. iCADÂs Second Look systems act very much like a second pair of eyes, assisting doctors in detecting up to 68 percent of actionable missed breast cancers an average of 15 months earlier than screening mammography alone.
