Hologic to Showcase 3D Mammography (Breast Tomosynthesis) and Other Advanced Women's Imaging Technologies at RSNA 2011, the Largest Radiology Show in the World
Date:11/21/2011

BEDFORD, Mass., Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (Nasdaq: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of women, will feature some of its newest women's health products at the 97th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) at McCormick Place in Chicago, November 26 through December 2.

Products highlighted this year include:

3D Mammography (Breast Tomosynthesis). The Hologic Selenia Dimensions 2D + 3D system systems provides radiologists measurable improvements in specificity and sensitivity over conventional digital mammography and increases radiologists confidence in ruling out breast cancer without a recall. For the first time ever, Selenia Dimensions breast tomosynthesis allows radiologists to offer their patients a conventional 2D digital mammogram and a 3D tomosynthesis exam in one compression, in just seconds at a dose below the U.S. mammography screening guidelines.

Hologic is offering five 90-minute programs combining lectures and hands-on experience for radiologists and other medical professionals interested in learning more about breast tomosynthesis technology. Six scientific papers that discuss the use of Hologic tomosynthesis in clinical breast cancer screening practices will be presented at RSNA.

A synthesized 2D image reconstruction algorithm commercially available outside the U.S. will be presented at the meeting. The algorithm is designed to create a 2D image from the tomosynthesis projection data, thereby eliminating the need for a 2D exposure, while maintaining superior performance to a conventional 2D-onl
