Hologic to Mark Start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month with NASDAQ Opening Bell Ceremony
Date:10/1/2013

BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hologic, Inc. (Hologic or the Company) (NASDAQ: HOLX), a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of premium diagnostics products, medical imaging systems and surgical products, with an emphasis on serving the healthcare needs of women, today announced that Jack W. Cumming, Hologic's President and Chief Executive Officer, will preside over the NASDAQ Stock Market Opening Bell Ceremony marking the start of a month long effort to raise awareness of breast cancer and the importance of breast cancer screening. This is the eighth year that Hologic has been selected to participate in the NASDAQ opening bell ceremonies celebrating the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

In his opening remarks, Mr. Cumming will focus on the value of Hologic's 3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) in finding more invasive cancers and decreasing unnecessary recalls.Hologic's 3D Mammography Technology3D mammography (breast tomosynthesis) technology detects invasive cancers earlier when the disease is easiest to treat. Unlike conventional 2D mammography where the presence of overlapping breast tissue can make it more difficult to detect cancer, Hologic's 3D mammography technology is designed to allow doctors to see the breast more clearly, particularly for women with dense breasts.  As a result, fewer women are called back for additional testing due to false positive results. Large clinical studies in Europe and the U.S. report that Hologic's 3D mammography technology significantly reduces recall rates while simultaneously improving cancer detection.

  • Clinical research shows that the Hologic 3D mammogram finds 40% more invasive cancers than conventional 2D mammography.
  • Clearer, more detailed images from the Hologic 3D mammogram give doctor
