The NASDAQ Opening Bell Ceremony will be the culmination of a series of events Hologic has planned to raise awareness for its Dimensions 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) system. Unlike conventional 2D mammography where the presence of overlapping breast tissue can make it more difficult to detect cancer, the Hologic 3D mammography procedure allows doctors to see the breast more clearly, particularly for women with dense breasts.  As a result, fewer women are called back for additional testing because of false positive results. Clinicians also report that the Hologic 3D mammography procedure detects cancers that may have been missed by 2D mammography.
