Date:11/21/2011

173-year.2011_173-id.234881901.html">Sentinelle Endo Coil for pelvic imaging, including staging for prostate cancer. A 90-minute program that combines lectures and hands-on experience reading prostate MRI cases with visualization and analysis software is available for radiologists interested in the new technology.

"RSNA provides an opportunity for Hologic to showcase our new and innovative products, such as 3D breast tomosynthesis for breast cancer screening and diagnosis," stated Rob Cascella, President and CEO of Hologic. "This has been an exciting year for Hologic as we continue our focus on improving technology for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. In addition to 3D mammography, we introduced a number of other new imaging technologies and will have them all on display at the Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America, the largest radiology show in the world."

Other Hologic products expected to generate considerable interest include:

  • Breast density is a clinically significant predictor of breast cancer risk, almost as significant as a woman's age.  Hologic Quantra  technology estimates volumes in the breast and calculates the volumetric fraction of fibroglandular tissue.
  • Hologic Advanced Body Composition software for its Discovery platform can help patients and physicians establish goals for weight loss, exercise and diet regimes. The software targets a major problem impacting 59 million American adults – obesity.
  • A work-in-progress this year is the Hologic Fluoroscan InSight-FD  mini C-arm with an innovative high-resolution flat detector that rivals standard x-ray images in a mini fluoroscopy system.
