iCad (NSDQ:ICAD) shares nearly doubled their value on Wall Street today after the medical device company said the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid approved a big increase in the reimbursement rate for its Xoft Axxent brachytherapy device.

Nashua, N.H.-based iCad said the Medicare agency issued "an improved payment policy" for intraoperative radiation therapy, more than doubling the rate CMS proposed last summer, according to a press release.
