Date:7/15/2013

anielsen, Hologic's Vice President and General Manager, Breast Imaging. "Physicians now have a new tool, tomosynthesis, to accurately identify regions of interest for biopsy. This addresses an emergent need users of our 3D mammography systems have identified - a biopsy technology that helps them locate lesions seen only on tomosynthesis images, as well as lesions that are better visualized using 3D imaging."

The 3D biopsy option joins Hologic's comprehensive suite of interventional breast health products, allowing users to depend on a single vendor for the majority of their breast health clinical needs. In addition to the Affirm upright biopsy system, the Company's MultiCare Platinum biopsy table can be used to perform prone biopsy procedures. The versatile ATEC vacuum-assisted breast biopsy system can be used to perform biopsies under stereotactic, ultrasound, MRI or tomosynthesis guidance using the Company's Eviva or ATEC devices. Hologic also provides a full line of biopsy site markers for use in all breast biopsy modalities.

Specimen radiography needs, whether in the operating room or imaging suite, can be met with Hologic's Trident specimen radiography system. This system was developed in response to customer requests and utilizes Hologic's flagship amorphous selenium, direct-capture detector, ensuring high-quality specimen imaging.
