Hologic Encourages Health Professionals to Get the Facts About Women's Imaging at RSNA 2010
Date:11/10/2010

ers earlier than ever before. One area that is expected to deliver on this promise is digital breast tomosynthesis. The Selenia® Dimensions® three-dimensional (3D) breast tomosynthesis system directly addresses the primary limitations of 2D digital alone mammography -- the superimposition of normal breast tissue.

Launched in Europe in September 2008, Selenia Dimensions breast tomosynthesis is poised to revolutionize how breast cancer is detected. It delivers the exquisite 2D images the industry has come to expect from Hologic and, for the first time ever, allows radiologists to offer their patients a conventional digital mammogram and a tomosynthesis exam -- all under one compression, in just seconds.  

Hologic has commercial breast tomosynthesis systems installed in over two dozen countries including Canada and Mexico. In September the Radiological Devices Panel of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) voted unanimously that Hologic demonstrated both the effectiveness and safety of the Selenia Dimensions system. The Panel also voted in favor that the benefits of this new technology outweigh the risks.

In 2010 Hologic and Barco, a global display and visualization provider, are working with the RSNA organization to deliver a series of hands-on digital mammography and breast tomosynthesis workshops during the weeklong meeting. Five hundred radiologists will benefit from this highly popular self-assessment educational workshop. Registration information may be found on the RSNA website.
