The collaboration of technology and medical science has greatly offered positive outcomes beyond imagination. Many astonishing devices and instruments have been launched in the medical field. With the help of technology, most of the patients have been benefited and gained convenient treatment methods. In the women health realm, breast cancer is a prevailing phenomenon that needs help. Many women do not even know the symptoms and treatments of breast cancer.

Many companies have moved a step forward in finding solutions related to breast cancer analysis. iCAD is one such uniquely positioned company that provides innovative solutions for all cancer detection and therapies. Leveragingartificial intelligence, the company enables healthcare providers to quickly analyze and help resolve breast cancer-related problems. The company’s solutions help physicians to keep an eye on the patients’ health. The medical technological leader providing cancer detection solutions have recently announced the clearance given by United States Food and Drug Administration for their solution for digital breast tomosynthesis. Thereby, it clears the technology for the commercial and clinical use. The AI technology has been adopted in healthcare facilities in the U.S. It provides the cutting edge for the breast cancer detection software.

Ken Ferry, CEO of iCAD states, “Built on deep learning technology, PowerLookTomo Detection is proven to optimize breast tomosynthesis reading efficiency, streamline workflow, and support cancer detection without increasing recalls.” Some domains like breastcancer.org have researched breast cancer occurrence.
