ProSense was demonstrated throughout the duration of the conference at IceCure's booth. Separately, in a breast session organized by SIO2023, ProSense was featured in a panel discussion on January 21st led by Dr. Kenneth Tomkovich and included Dr. Robert Ward, both ProSense users. The discussion included cryoablation as a treatment option as well as a mention of ICE3 interim trial results.
Dr. Tomkovich, Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologist with Princeton Radiology and Director of Breast Imaging and Interventions at CentraState Medical Center, is Co-lead Investigator of IceCure's landmark ICE3 study for the treatment of small, low-risk, early-stage malignant breast tumors. Dr. Ward, Assistant Professor of Diagnostic Imaging at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University, Program Director for the Breast Imaging Fellowship, Associate Chief of Diagnostic Imaging at Women & Infants Hospital, specializes in women's imaging and breast tumor cryoablation.
Commenting on the growing interest in ProSense, Dr. Tomkovich stated, "we are seeing increasing interest from interventional radiologists and interventional oncologists, many of whom are practitioners who previously were not treating breast cancer patients. Their interest appears to be driven by the encouraging ICE3 interim results, which can drive the development of new patient markets for practitioners while making the minimally invasive procedure more accessible to patients."
