Hologic to Preside Over NASDAQ Opening Bell Ceremony Marking the Start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Date:9/21/2011

3D breast tomosynthesis — a breakthrough Hologic believes will revolutionize how breast cancer is detected today.

In clinical studies, radiologists reading 2D mammography plus 3D breast tomosynthesis images compared to 2D images alone demonstrated superior clinical performance in specificity, the confidence to rule out breast cancer without recalling the patient for further study, and improved sensitivity, the proportion of mammograms which include breast cancers that were correctly diagnosed.(v)

In addition to mammography screening, Hologic provides products and technologies to address the entire continuum of screening, definitive diagnosis and therapy. If a suspicious lesion is detected, Hologic breast biopsy systems are designed to provide clinicians with easier and more effective access to the lesion with fewer needle insertions. Should cancer be detected in its early stages, many women are candidates for Hologic's targeted radiation therapy, a patient-friendly and effective alternative for women that qualify. Hologic's breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) solutions are highly sensitive for cancer staging, problem-solving, post treatment surveillance, and other indications. Breast MRI can detect many breast cancers that are often hidden when using standard imaging.

The Company's PromisetoMe.com website is further evidence of Hologic's support for women taking control of their health. For every woman making the Promise to Me pledge, Hologic will contribute funds for mammograms and cervical cancer and bone density screening for women that cannot afford the exams.
