(Nasdaq: ICCM) (TASE: ICCM) ("IceCure" or the "Company"), developer of minimally-invasive cryoablation technology, the ProSense® System that destroys tumors by freezing, today announced that ProSense is featured in a poster presentation titled "To Freeze Or Not To Freeze? That Is The Question: Cryoablation For The Treatment Of Breast Cancer" at RSNA 2022, the Radiological Society of North America's ("RSNA") 108th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting which takes place from November 27th to December 1st, 2022 in Chicago. RSNA is the largest radiology society in the world with over 48,000 members in the United States, representing 31 radiologic sub-specialties sharing state-of-the-art radiological innovations.

This marks the third year that IceCure's ICE3 clinical trial data are presented at RSNA. Last year, Dr. Tomkovich presented interim data from the ICE3 clinical trial at RSNA 2021 with his presentation titled "Primary Treatment of Low Risk Breast Cancers Using Image-Guided Cryoablation: A 6 Year Update of the ICE3 Trial" which was selected to be featured in a daily bulletin by RSNA. See featured bulletin here: LINK
ICE3 is the largest controlled, multicenter clinical trial ever performed in the U.S. for liquid nitrogen-based cryoablation of small, low-risk, early-stage malignant breast tumors. Interim analysis submitted as part of IceCure's filing a De Novo classification request with the FDA for marketing authorization of ProSense with Breakthrough Indication for early-stage, low-risk breast cancer patients at high risk to surgery, shows to date, there have been six cases of ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence ("IBTR") out of 194 patients, or 3.09%. Final ICE3 5-year follow-up data is expected in the first half of 2024. The Company was recently assigned a CPT Category III Code from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services ("CMS") for the Company's ProSense breast cancer cryoablation procedures, which is priced for coverage by the CMS at approximately $3,400 for the facility fee alone.
