Hologic Features New Minimally Invasive Technologies at the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists Annual Meeting

omy is the second most commonly performed surgical operation in the United States, with more than 600,000 operations performed each year. Leading experts, including Dr. Mehmet Oz of "The Dr. Oz Show," agree that hysterectomy is over-performed, and studies show that up to 90 percent of the procedures in the U.S. are not medically necessary.

"There are innovative, safe and effective alternatives to treat common gynecologic issues like abnormal uterine bleeding.  Before undergoing a hysterectomy, we believe that women should know all of their treatment options so they can make the most informed decisions possible," says Steve Williamson, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Hologic GYN Surgical Products.  

The recent FDA clearance of the Hologic Advanced Body Composition assessment package opens up a new market for the Discovery whole body dual x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) systems which, up to now, have primarily been used to measure osteoporosis in women after they reach menopause. Some of the diseases and conditions for which body composition values are useful include obesity, chronic renal failure, anorexia nervosa, AIDS/HIV and cystic fibrosis.

"Our new Advanced Body Composition assessment package is designed to provide a more detailed and more consistent baseline for measuring body mass changes than bio-impedance testing, hydrostatic weighing and skin fold thickness," said John Jenkins, Vice President and General Manager of the Hologic Skeletal Health business.
